Pockie Ninja, a new MMO brawler inspired by the Naruto and Bleach manga series' - both of which were inspired by comics– is launching an official fortnightly comic inspired by its players and in-game events. Making it the worlds first comic series inspired by events inspired by series' that were inspired by comics...probably.
NGames, publishers of new free-to-play anime-inspired hit, Pockie Ninja, have today revealed plans to publish a fortnightly online comic based on the MMO's in-game events. Using pocket-sized versions of famous anime characters, browser-based brawler“Pockie Ninja” allows players to take on the role of their favourite heroes and villains from the Naruto and Bleach series', engaging in beautifully animated arena fights while questing to save Angel City from an army of evil demon warriors.
The bi-weekly comic promises to highlight, and poke fun at, humorous in-game events and well known MMO player traits, such as an addiction to levelling up apprentices; the pitfalls of being an in-game bully; and even the (not so) sexy possibilities of been able to switch into many different outfits - one of Pockie Ninja's key gameplay elements.
NGames have released a handful of preview comic panels to celebrate the announcement, stating that player-influenced comics will be introduced in the near future.
Titled“Apprentice Mania”,“Boys or Girls”,“The Tragic Assassination” and“The Tragic Rasengan”, each comic pays homage to some of the most regular in-game occurrences during Pockie Ninja's beta phase, from sleep deprived players desperate to level up quickly, to ninjas accidentally killing and poisoning themselves with their own attacks.
Tracy, PR Manager for NGames LTD, says,“This is yet another opportunity for fans of Naruto and Bleach to interact with their favourite anime characters. By playing Pockie Ninja, players will soon be able to inspire the events of these fun little comics and influence the story lines we publish.”
She continued,“Technically, you'll be making mini-comics with your favourite comic characters!”..
Pockie Ninja is currently enjoying its open beta test phase and welcomes all gamers to join in with the anime-inspired fun.

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...
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.
