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.

beast jumps into battle and unleashes its powerful skills on the
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.
