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

IceGames Co. Ltd is today excited to announce that the open beta for highly anticipated Naruto themed MMORPG, Ultimate Naruto will launch September 23rd.

Combining anime-based plotlines, exhilarating combat and a pure Japanese anime style, Ultimate Naruto gives players the chance to slip into the shoes of their favourite characters from the Naruto anime series and form their own path as an ultimate and powerful ninja. The faithful Naruto RPG offers players an engaging gameplay experience, fan favourite storylines, cool social options, and even a chance to raise and nurture a powerful tailed beast.

Launching September 23rd 9:00 PM(GMT -5), Open Beta players will gain access to the full suite of Ultimate Narutos features, including the varied Ninja School class system.

Different types of ninjas learn at different schools in the world of Ultimate Naruto; each discipline coming with its own distinctive features.

There are three schools for ninjas to choose: Secret Jutsu, Ninjutsu, and Taijutsu. Secret Jutsu ninjas have the advantage of owning an immortal body; Ninjutsu ninja's have a strong and unique understanding of all forms of ninjutsu; and Taijutsu ninja's are extremely proficient at hand-to-hand combat.

Each school accommodates both male and female practitioners, with gender specific traits available. While the male ninjas of each school are eager to show their strength and might in combat, female ninjas tend to be much stronger learners of secret techniques – making for an even battlefield no matter the match up.

To celebrate the Ultimate Naruto open beta, IceGames is running a special Facebook event where players can earn huge in-game packages.

All players have to do is Like the Ultimate Naruto page on Facebook. When the page hits the 3000, 5000, and 10000 "likes" milestones, every Ultimate Naruto player will receive a free pack containing massive amounts of in-game gold and silver - a perfect treat to spend on honing ninja skills and exploring the Ultimate Naruto world.
