(Full disclouse, I found out about this via Kotaku)
So, there's a new game in the works called Pocki Ninja that is calming to use characters that are inspired by Bleach and Naruto. The game, according to the developer NGames, is apparently going to be browser "...anime-inspired MMO..." that "...will focus on the unique life and journey of a ninja, entrusted with defeating the world's most evil and destructive warrior corporations."
Here is the first official trailer for the game:
And here are some wallpapers from the game's official site:
What do you guys think of this? Honestly, I'm astounded that this is a thing, given the way manga publishers are cracking down on scanslations. While they do loose money on them, the scanslators don't make money. This will be profiting off of using the likenesses of licensed characters.
(Yes, that was Sui-Feng in the first wallpaper and Yoruichi in the second. Or should I say, they were "inspired" by Sui-Feng and Yoruichi.)Kotaku
We think we know your secret. But it's safe with us.
