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

IceGames Co. Ltd, an independent publisher of quality online games, is delighted to announce that the open beta for Naruto-inspired team combat MMORPG, Naruto Saga, launches today, October 29th, at 9:00 PM (GMT – 5).

A new free-to-play MMORPG on the Games.la platform, Naruto Saga brings a fresh set of gameplay experiences into the world of the fabled Naruto anime series. Combining tactical one-on-one battle systems with quick time events (QTEs), dynamic quest systems based on Naruto plots, powerful Beast Summoning, exciting Arena PK and mysterious Ninja Transformation features, Naruto Saga gives players immense freedom while challenging them to use wisdom and courage to overcome obstacles as they strive to become the top ninja in the land.

Players have a main ninja character and choose their ninja class after completing the first main quest. Each of the three classes, Ninjutsu, Taijutsu, and Genjutsu, has a unique set of attacks and skills that shape the way they approach battle.

Ninjutsu characters, such as Uzumaki Naruto, Gaara, and Jiraiya, are the heavy hitters of Naruto Saga, proficient enough with Critical damage to deal massive hits to their enemies. When triggered, Ninjutsu ninjas can deal extra damage to all enemies, and their adept use of Strike Talent can restrict a Taijutsu ninja's blocking ability.

Taijutsu ninjas, such as Rock Lee, Gai, and Tsunade, are known for their incredible defense capabilities. By using Block at the right moment, Taijutsu ninjas can greatly reduce the damage they take. Taijutsu characters are cunning enough to outsmart the Genjutsu Ninja's dodge ability.

Genjutsu practitioners, such as Uchiha Sasuke, Kakashi, and Orochimaru, have the ability to move faster than the eye can see. When using Dodge, Genjutsu ninjas can avoid any and all damage coming their way, while their proficiency with Tenacity Talent means they can stand toe-to-toe with the most powerful Ninjutsu ninjas around.

On their epic journey, players will meet and team up with some of the most famous ninjas in the anime world, including Kakashi, Sasuke, Sakura, and even the powerful Naruto himself. Players can also form teams with each other as they explore everything the mystical ninja world has to offer, and make use of deep social features and forums to share the secrets they find – or keep them to themselves.

The Naruto Saga open beta goes live today, October 29th at 9:00pm (GMT -5). Interested players can register for free now at the official website, and learn more by following Naruto Saga on Facebook and Twitter.
