Japanime Games Announces Naruto: Ninja Arena

Grab your headbands, put on your best orange top, brush up on your jutsus, and stretch your arms so you can run with them directly back behind you, Japanime Games has announced they're teaming up with Don't Panic Games to bring you Naruto: Ninja Arena.

From the announcement:

Japanime Games is proud to announce another partnership with Don't Panic Games (Cowboy Bebop: Space Serenade) to bring Naruto: Ninja Arena to wider audiences beyond just Europe.We previously worked with Don't Panic Games on the release of Cowboy Bebop: Space Serenade earlier this year, and we could not be happier to work with them again given the praise and success witnessed with Cowboy Bebop: Space Serenade. 

Naruto: Ninja Arena is a competitive, fast-paced game all about simultaneous dice rolling for 2-4 players, ages 10 and up. You and your opponents all take on characters in the Naruto universe battling it out in real-time to be the last ninja standing. Every character has their own abilities and each player has their own dice pools. As a round starts, all players roll their dice at the same time, trying to match symbols on their dice based on what character abilities they have. As players activate abilities, they will mark their opponents for potential, future damage. Once a player has correctly collected the necessary symbols for their ultimate, special ability, they'll slap an Uzumaki spiral in the center of the board to signify this and damage is dealt. In this brief pause, the player who slapped the spiral last will take extra damage and the players will resolve the effects. This damage is applied based on the markers distributed by players activating their abilities.

“It is great to have a new, exciting Naruto game available to fans. This game really captures the frenetic action that is difficult to capture from the exciting fights that Anime often depicts” said Eric Price, President of Japanime Games. Naruto: Ninja Arena is expected to release in Q1 of 2021.
