Demo Version

Battle System

Here, the game has a simple navigation of controlling Naruto in the game field, triggering an encounter system and subsequently fighting enemies. With the combination of party members and formation in a turn-based battle, Naruto is set.


"Chakra" exists as the key in a battle and a gauge is displayed at the bottom of the screen during combat, which rises when damage is received. As you accumulate chakra, you will be able to use the skills of each character. A necessary amount of chakra will be used depending on various skills. Therefore, it's a tactic of deciding whose skills and when to use it that makes the game interesting. For example, for Sakura, a small amount of chakra can heal the entire party. For Rock Lee, a huge amount of chakra is needed to deal great damage to the enemy.

Cut-In Scenes

The climax of the demo debuts when Gaara summons Shukaku. A cut-in movie will play where Naruto summons Gamabunta. Things get interesting as the giant monsters appear and closes when Naruto manages to stop Gaara. Rich content like movie cut-in scenes are used for this browser game.
