NGames are proud to announce that Pockie Ninja, their free-to-play Naruto/Bleach-inspired brawler MMO, has surpassed 1 million registrations during its beta phase!

Starting life under the secretive "Project Ninja" cloak, which saw NGames release several mysterious images and nothing more than vague hints about their purpose, Pockie Ninja has quickly blossomed into one of the most sought after browser-based gaming experiences available today.

Taking inspiration from fan favourite anime, Pockie Ninja focuses on the unique life and journey of a ninja, entrusted with defeating the world's most evil and destructive warrior corporations. Featuring beautiful graphics, slick interfaces, hundreds of characters and a huge world to explore, Pockie Ninja is aiming to take browser-based MMO gaming to the next level.

Mass Appeal

Pockie Ninja appeals to gamers and anime fans alike, marrying two of the most popular manga series of all time; Naruto and Bleach; with familiar MMO gameplay, polished presentation and innovate features. The explosion in popularity means NGames have already had to purchase several new servers for the beta testing phase, ensuring a lag free experience for the game's now 1 million strong army of budding Ninja's.

Players can assume the role of a number of fan favourite characters from the Naruto and Bleach series' - including Naruto Uzumaki, Itachi Uchiha and Renji Abarai; taking part in visually stunning fights that utilize a massive array of special moves and customised items.

When not fighting, players can also explore Pockie Ninja's beautifully presented landscapes, teaming with others on quests to help protect Angel City from the evil souls that have broken free of Demon City's once-sealed walls.

Beta testers have spoken highly of the ability to auto train their characters and earn valuable XP while away from the game, meaning they return to a stronger ninja and can keep pace with the other players.

Pockie Ninja is boasting plenty of customisation options, including the unique 'Multiple Synthesis' system, allowing players to combine any two in-game items for surprising results.

Unlike many other MMO's, Pockie Ninja has also done away with the usually rigid approach to character progression, instead allowing players to freely change their class - or“School of Ninja” - whenever they please, completely modifying tactics and in-game abilities as a result.

When not beating the anime-colours out of each other in the battle arena, hardened ninja's can take on the mercilessly challenging Las Noches, a building featuring over 100 floors of enemies that increase in difficulty as the player ascends.

Players hoping to relax can even raise unique pets, check out their multi-functional Ninja Diary, hunt for secrets across the game world, and read Pockie Ninja's original fortnightly comic, created by NGames and inspired by in-game events.

The popularly of Pockie Ninja's beta period has allowed NGames to thoroughly stress test the game and its features. With this level of polish and attention to detail, the official launch and beyond is looking bright for the anime-inspired MMO and its enthusiastic players.

Pockie Ninja!

Deep in the thorn forest behind the mist of Angel City lays Demon City, a heavily guarded waste land once known for housing the world's most evil warriors.

300 years ago, the evil warriors formed a formidable army - led by the wickedest Demon to ever roam the world - attacking affluent villages in a bid to control the world.

Eventually defeated by Master of the Ninja, the supreme leader of Angel City, the evil warriors, along with their mystic Ninjitsu and a secret plot, were buried, sealed and thought never to return...

..until now.

Restless souls in Demon City have awakened and broken free of the seal, escaping the guarded city.

By using forbidden ninjutsu on innocent animals, turning them into puppet warriors, the evils plan to invade Angel City, release their leader and rule the world again. The abuse of forbidden ninjutsu has caused rapid environment deterioration, washing and rocking the land with tsunamis and earthquakes.

As the last hope of the world and the 'chosen one', the player needs to embrace the ways of the ninja, protect Angel City and restore the natural balance of order, utilizing extraordinary ninja skills along the way.
