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

The game which successfully replicates the world of Naruto will officially start its Open Beta on December 26, 2013 at 10 a.m. Those who are interested can now sign up and try the game at

Naruto Spirit is a cherished product as its creation consumed a lot of resources and manpower of Young World Technology. With young employees filled with enthusiasm and passion, Young World has made this game the most successful web-game in Vietnam with more than 10,000 players in the game at the same time.

Its success in Vietnam inspired Young World to reach more Naruto fans by going global. And on December 18, the company kicked off its Close Beta for the English version of Naruto Spirit, which was its first step to becoming a global game publisher.

In the game, users can use the “Transformation” feature to transform into any of their favorite characters and freely use their unique skills however they want. This feature has been voted as one of the top 5 interesting aspects of the game. The other four are good actions and effects, several massive combat events, QTE feature, and the Tailed-Beast series.

On the Open Beta start day, Naruto Spirit will open 3 more Servers:

- (Server 4)  KAKASHI - 11:00 AM, GMT+8 ( Oceanic)

- (Server 5)  ROCK LEE  - 02:00 PM, GMT+0 ( Europe)

- (Server 6)  NEJI - 02:00 PM, GMT-3 ( US)

Together with the opening of new servers are many big events such as King of Arena, 5 Days Action, Warmish Christmas, and a lot more. This is a great chance to hunt for valuable rewards.
