  Guardian Beasts Invade Pockie Pirates

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

NGames, a leading online games publisher, has announced the immediate introduction of "Guardian Beasts", a brand new pet system, to One Piece browser-based MMO, Pockie Pirates.

Following the launch of "Chapter 5 - The Straw Hats", which added new All Blue crew members and adventures, Pockie Pirates players can now raise and train their very own beastly pets. When taking a beating, pirates will be able to turn the tide of crew vs. crew battle in their favour by unleashing their Guardian Beast - a new pet with the power to deliver potentially combat-defining blows.

The introduction of Guardian Beasts adds two exciting new game modes to the free-to-play MMO, allowing players to sculpt their pets personalities into unique killing machines.

Raising Hell

Upon reaching level 30 players can acquire an unhatched egg, which must be nurtured before it hatches. By effectively nurturing and levelling their egg with different enhancement items, pirates can ensure that their Guardian Beast enters the world with the strongest possible skills.

Eggs hatch when they reach level 20, springing forth a unique beast with its own personality of attributes, including active skills and a passive skill slot. Every Pockie Pirates pet is born with a unique active skill and the option to add new skills later, allowing for a huge variety of different pet + skill combinations.

Hatched Guardian Beasts act as an effective crew member in battles, but they come with a twist. Instead of attacking and being susceptible to harm from opposing players like the rest of the crew, Guardian Beasts instead watch the action unfold from the sidelines. As the captain of the crew takes damage, the beast becomes angered and gains Fury. When the Fury meter hits 100, the beast jumps into battle and unleashes its powerful skills on the opposing crew.

Players can level and earn EXP for their Guardian Beast by playing through the new Guardian Beast Adventure mode, while special enhancement items, active skills, and passive skills can be acquired by finishing the all new Combo Adventures.

Whether a Guardian Beast learns the same skill repeatedly to become an expert in its field, or simply learns multiple skills to encompass a range of talents, is entirely the players choice.
