As reported by Shonen Leaks, Sasuke Retsuden is getting an anime adaptation. However, it won’t be a standalone anime series. Rather, it will be a separate arc in the ongoing Boruto: Naruto Next Generation anime series. The title for the first two episodes has been revealed.
Episode 1 of Sasuke Retsuden (282nd episode of Boruto) is titled “Sasuke Retsuden: Infiltration”, and episode 2 (283rd episode of Boruto) is titled “Sasuke Retsuden: Star Lines”. No details about the animation studio have been announced yet. We also don’t know how the story will be incorporated into the ongoing Boruto anime, since Sasuke Retsuden takes place way before the events of Boruto.
