Major Pockie Ninja update released August 11th

NGames have revealed details of the latest version update to Pockie Ninja set for release on August 11th.

Players of Naruto/Bleach-inspired browser-based brawler, Pockie Ninja will be treated to a bounty of new game modes, items, optimisations and more this Thursday, thanks to the release of the game's latest version. The update will see several new items, equipment and PVP challenge modes added to the game, as well as multiple modifications to existing functions.

Brand new Items and Equipment

Pockie Ninja's in-game Item Mall is expanding its shelf space to make way for new magical weapons and scrolls.

A Lv.6 Engrave Blade; a new Apprentice Panel Opening Book; Mid-sized Beans (increasing Satiety level to 330); and a Secret Technique Scroll containing 3 limited edition weapons, a rare ring and other items; will all be made available when the new version is released.

More items will also be introduced into Pockie Ninja's general play. Taking on a boss in the Las Noches challenge could now earn you a Secret Technique Scroll, while rewards for advanced outfit transfers and event-exclusive clothing sets will be available.

Budding ninjas will receive a host of new equipment to enjoy, with three 5-part clothing sets being added to the game.

The Angelic Union, Dragon King, and Sacred Arm clothing sets each come in 5-parts including boots, armour, helms, belts and gloves and each enhance key ninja attributes during battle.

Be sure to get yourself one of these new sets if you wish to improve your speed, dodge, attack and defence abilities.

New PVP Modes

Pockie Ninja's PVP system is receiving a massive update, with new challenge zones set to test the wits of any martial artist.

The Death Challenge zone - open every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday challenges players to defend their lives through 30 minutes of gruelling battles. If a player is successful, they win the round and claim a bounty of useful in-game rewards.

Meanwhile, the Endurance Challenge zone open every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday will pit players against each other in a bid to last the longest. Each challenger will become the host after a victory, with the event continuing and the jackpot accumulating until a final winner is determined. Losing challengers can re-challenge their opponents after failure, meaning these battles are as much about stamina as they are fighting prowess.

The new challenge modes will even allow players to unlock new special titles once certain requirements are met, and there are bonus rewards for players who host the events!

Tweaks and Optimisations

The latest update promises important visual and usability enhancements to many of Pockie Ninja's current core functions. The character creation panel will be optimised to promote ease of use, along with tweaks to the rankings list and Dragon Soul clothing sets.

A set of popular old pets will also be reintroduced to the game, as well as a new system that means pet synthesis levels raise to +27 and Satiety levels increase whenever a pet levels up.

New Version = New Events!

Publisher NGames love to launch their updates with events for all users to play a part in, and this occasion is no different.

So far, NGames have confirmed that players can Challenge the GM in the challenge zone to win exclusive items, as well as visit the Aug-Hot online carnivals, where wonderful rewards will be given away.

Further mystery events will be announced soon.

Pockie Ninja

Anime fans and gamers alike are quickly making Pockie Ninja their new online home. A free-to-play browser-based brawler MMO incorporating some of the best known characters and special abilities from the infamous Bleach and Naruto series - including Naruto Uzumaki and his infamous Demon Fox form - Pockie Ninja amassed over 3 million registrations during it's beta period alone.

With a constant stream of updates, events and challenges for players to explore and enjoy, as well as 2 major updates since launch - including the village-building-focused Chapter III: Hokage Village content - you'll have endless fun embracing the ways of the ninja while helping to restore the natural balance of order to Angel City.

Pockie Ninja offers a deep item synthesising system, allowing any two items to be combined into often surprising results, and a robust choice of customisable outfits that each offer special abilities and stat boosts. Pockie Ninja also does away with the usually rigid class system found in modern day MMO's, instead allowing players to freely change their class and "school of ninja" whenever they choose, resulting in a truly unique experience for every player.
