  Roll Like a Ninja in Pockie Ninja II Original
  Share on Twitter Share on Facebook RSS

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

Publisher NGames has announced the introduction of "Shichibukai", a brand new, traditional board game inspired instance added to Naruto, Bleach and One Piece MMORPG, Pockie Ninja II Original.

Released on October 25th, "Chapter 3: Shichibukai" adds a brand new instance inspired by traditional board game elements to Naruto, Bleach and One Piece browser-based brawler, Pockie Ninja II Original.

The titular new instance, "Shichibukai", transports ninjas to the board game-styled home of the Royal Seven; a One Piece inspired realm where the roll of a dice can mean the difference between being blessed with bags of loot, or cursed with terrible death.

Although Pockie Ninja II Original players can usually roam the massive in-game world with complete freedom, in Shichibukai they must place their lives in the hands of lady luck, rolling dice to navigate a trap filled labyrinth in a risky but rewarding treasure hunt.

The Royal Seven – the seven pirates of Shichibukai - are all conquerors of the sea, and their homeland is littered with the hidden treasures they have looted. Ninjas successfully venturing into the Shichibukai can walk away with massive amounts of riches and specials items, provided they avoid the hidden traps protecting them.

Shichibukai adds a wicked twist of risk/reward gameplay to Pockie Ninja II Original. Players can try their luck for as long as they wish on the islands of Shichibukai, accumulating wealth as they play. However, they must tread carefully or risk losing everything. Falling into a deadly trap will mean all items collected will be dropped and lost forever, and all efforts will have been for nothing.

Shichibukai’s Empress is waiting for ninjas daring enough to enter Shichibukai and try their luck. Pockie Ninja II Original is a thrilling, completely free-to-play Naruto and Bleach MMORPG. Everybody is welcome to sign up and join the anime inspired fun now.
