Brand new outfits
Outfits play an important role in Pockie Ninja. Not only do they

speed; debuff reduction; and extra fire, water, earth and lightning
effects – could make you a real force to be reckoned
Meanwhile, Naruto fans will be eager to get their hands on the
new Kyuubi Naruto orange outfit, which draws upon the
near-invincible strength of the nine-tailed demon sealed inside
Legend says that the violent tailed beast was sealed by the end
of the Shinobi World War, leading to the appearance of Jinchuriki -
humans that have tailed beasts sealed within them. What kind of
powerful skill can we expect when rampant beast and passionate
young man come together?
Other stunning new outfits have also been announced, encouraging
players to have fun while playing with the five elements and
exploring the Pockie Ninja game world. The Release Skill Outfit is
a must have for ninja's pursuing the ultimate power.
Brave explorers could be in for a real treat - have you
collected the scale of Azure Dragon, feather of Vermillion Bird,
tooth of a White Tiger and the shell of a Black Tortoise? Then why
not take them to a forging master and check out the Spirit Creature
Outfit he can produce with all of the materials combined. Your
bravery will surely be rewarded!
Ngames have announced two powerful new pets for
"Chapter III: Hokage Village" : the Dark Wing Dragon, and
the Azure Dragonling.
The Dark Wing Dragon is a force to be reckoned with, increasing
its owners powers and adding essential support during battle. The
dragon can use divine speed to increase the speed of its owner,
while its icy breath will help to create a powerful crystal
The Azure Dragling has awakened from thousands of years of sleep
to help ninjas resit the evil forces. No one dares to challenge the
mighty draglings, but whose strength will be recognised by the
Azure Dragonling? Will it be the reserved ways of Gaara, the cold
hearted Sasuke, the exuberant Naruto..or maybe even you?
Plush new Items and Treasures!
NGames have announced an array of new items for Pockie Ninja
players to collect, including new treasure jars and wishing pots
that gift users with a bounty of gameplay benefits.
The new items, such as the Advanced Sage Panacea which rewards
players with 350x the EXP gained from killing a monster, will be
accompanied by special Orbs, Treasure Jar's and Boxes, each
blessing ninja's with a package of useful gifts.
Many of the items were once only obtainable through Pockie
Ninjas special event reward packs, but can now be found when
exploring the game world. For example: finding Aizen's Crumbling
Orb Essence will gift you with a new wishing pot, pet skills,
crystals, gift boxes and golden equipment.
If you look hard enough, you might even stumble upon the new
Golden, Diamond and Luxury "Treasure Jars" - special features of
Chapter III: Hokage Village that are bursting with new
outfits, skill books, powerful crystals and attributes to push your
ninja to the next level.
There are even rumours of the divine Gem of Tailed Beast Heart
being added to the game. Once thought to only exist in legendary
stories, the gem will massively increase its wearers power and
could turn the tide of battle in your favour.
The Mystery Merchant Returns
After the defeat of Aizen, the Mystery Merchant began to learn
of Aizen's cruelness and has decided to side with Angel City. As a
result, he's now selling his rare items to users at a much cheaper
The Mystery Merchant can only sell a limited number of items and
players will need to wait for a period time between purchases. Be
sure to act quickly and choose your purchases wisely, as clever use
of the Mystery Merchant's items could prove key to victory.
