[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

NGames are proud to announce the first major update for their Naruto/Bleach-inspired browser based MMO, Pockie Ninja(Español). The update, titled "Revenge of Aizen", introduces new characters, outfits, pets and a host of new features to the game.

NGames have confirmed that their popular browser-based brawler, Pockie Ninja(Español), is set for it's first official update - Open Beta Version: Revenge of Aizen!

Players will be treated to new characters, powerful outfits and items, new ways to interact with in-game pets, a brand new achievement system, and more.

New Characters

Jiraiya (aka, Toad Sage), a celebrated Sannin from the Naruto series; and Unohana Retsu, a captain of the Fourth Division from the Bleach series; have both experienced pocket-sized transformations for Pockie Nina(Español)'s Open Beta Version update.

Both characters will be a welcome addition to the world of Pockie Ninja(Español), each possessing an impressive past from their respective anime series'.

Jiraiya was one of the heroes of the Shinobi World War, earning the Legendary Three Ninja title for impressive prowess, while Unohana Retsu is one of the oldest captains in Gotei 13 and the most experienced in the Soul Society.

New Outfits

Pockie Ninja(Español)'s innovative outfit system, which allows players to freely change their class (or 'School of Ninja') during play, is also set for an update. NGames revealed that Open Beta Version will add Outfit Lists to the game, giving players greater power and bonuses to play with.

Outfits will now come in 'lists' consisting of three levels: gray, blue and orange; each corresponding to the different bonuses and grades they offer.

Special rewards are promised for players able to collect a full outfit list.

Upgraded Pets

Meanwhile, the infamous Toad Boss has been busy training Pockie Ninja(Español)'s in-game pets. Under his leadership, pets in all villages have now trained to a level where they're able to demonstrate their real power!

When Open Beta Version launches, level 9 pets will obtain their first inherited power from their ancestors, evolving from infancy to a powerful adult form.

But, the adult form cannot fully contain the pet's ultimate power, so they will transform again at level 18, turning into an superlative form to break the limit and unlock their true potential

A healthy pet is a loyal pet, or so the saying goes.

Ninja's need to keep their pets fed in order to satisfy their appetites, which means hunting in the wild for food and rewards. Following traces of other animals will soon lead to a source of food, as well as the occasional precious item, such as new Pet Egg's and Pet Skill Lock's!

Mystery Merchant

Long ago, during the Demon Seal War, a mysterious merchant from an exotic world appeared on the Sakura mainland. Nobody knew much about the mystery merchant, other than his willingness to sell rare, powerful items to the evil forces in Demon City, resulting in Angel City's failure during the initial stages of the war. He was sealed by Ninja Master after Angel City eventually gained victory. Now, with the seal broken, he has returned to the Sakura mainland.

Ninjas able to track the mystery merchant may just get a peek at his arcane items...

Achievements

Nothing says “I'm a grown up!” like a pocket-sized Ninja with achievements!

In a world where you're always miniature, racking up impressive achievements is the best way to stand head and shoulders above the crowd. Open Beta Version: Revenge of Aizen will bring a new achievement and title system to Pockie Ninja(Español), allowing mini-martial artists to flaunt their progress with a badge of honour.

Players can even earn unique titles by finishing special achievements, further enhancing their combat powers as a result!

Open Beta Version: Revenge of Aizen was released on May 24th, 2012. You can sign up and play Pockie Ninja(Español) for free now
