Pockie Ninja: Chapter 9 update coming April 26th

Publisher NGames have announced a brand new update for their Naruto and Bleach inspired browser-based game, Pockie Ninja. Launching April 26th, 7:00am (CDT), "Chapter 9: Battle! Impel Down!" is set to bring a host of new content to the popular MMORPG.

New Bloodlines

Chapter 9 introduces an all-new Bloodline Limit for level 91+ players. Applied to the level 91 Konoha Village map, the Dark Gold Bloodline Limit allows players to unlock a variety of new techniques, from increased blocking and judgement skills, to commanding the Ten Puppets and using the Mayfly to raise their max HP by 15%.

The new bloodline limit comes with it's own Dark Gold Collection, which ninjas can discover at the official Tsundae's Pub, Battle against Tailed Beasts, and War of Ninja events.

More Skills = More Power!

From April 26th, ninjas will be able to benefit from 4 additional Skill Slots, which can be unlocked by collecting multiple entries from the new Kakashi's Notebook. Each new skill slot is only valid for a set number of days when unlocked separately. However, players who unlock additional skill slots within the time limit will be able to benefit from the extra inventory permanently forever impacting the release and effect of powerful ninja skills.

Schooling the Ninjas

New Ninja Rank Promotion Exams will bring a whole new meaning to Pockie Ninja's school of ninja system when Chapter 9 launches. Players from Level 60+ can enter a dice rolling game to earn EXP and growing points for their ninjas. Earning and consuming growing points will promote players through 21 ninja ranks - from Elementary Student to Head of Five Kages with each new rank boosting a character's maximum HP limits.

New Dungeons

The massive new Underwater Prison Impel Down dungeon promises to test even the most adept of ninjas. The Underwater Prison is a solo dungeon featuring 4 floors, with 25 groups of monsters and powerful bosses to topple on each level.

To help, a new Zanpakuto system will let high level players collect and synthesize weapon components to create powerful load outs for battle.

Frequent Free Gifts Giveaways

NGames are introducing a host of ways for players to frequently earn free in-game rewards. A new ranking system will further increase Pockie Ninja's competitiveness and players on the rankings will be rewarded with items every day.

Players will also be able to earn double rewards from the paid lucky draws held each day, and a new Reward Rampant Mode will be frequently triggered with lots of high value items up for grabs.

Chapter 9: Battle! Impel Down! is coming to Pockie Ninja on April 26th.
