    ive been thinking, with world of warcraft totally owning the mmo world, now would be a good time to come up with new ideas for a game, instead of constantly recreating the same fantasy stuff. i could only think of 2 games that really break this: star wars, which was alright, and planetside, which i think rocks, but i am one of the maybe 10,000 gamers who play. 2 games would be cool. cowboy bebop, or naruto. both have massive, nonexplored worlds, and many factions. for cowboy bebop, cops vs bounty hunters vs syndicate vs freelance. naruto is much more obvious: whover gets in the way of the mission.
    ill have more on this later. ive really been thinking of this for a while. eliminate the turn-based-ish combat with part splinter cell and part... something else. incorporating stealth and awesome combat would be tricky, but well worth it. and one thing id like is the ability to truly customize my character. all crafting would be available to everyone, but would be more personnalized, so although u may make a good distraction bomb, ur friend makes wicked fuma clan shuriken. focusing on specific catagories would allow u to have an economy, but wont make characters 100% dependant on other crafters. another thing would be creation of ur own moves. i find it boring that everyone has the same moves, as if no one has any imagination. move creation has the unpredictability of the real world, and can also suit ur characters peronality, which i think is key. finally, i want to avoid a game that is 75% grinding on beasts. although they would make up some part of the game, i think missions and such should be the real focus of games that feature mercenaries. also, i want the fear of a secret wall. one thing that kinda stinks in WoW is that some of the cool areas can be bared off because they are filled with hostile npcs. for example, i am a dwarf, and i may never get to see mulgore... *tear*. but anyway, having he ability to wander everywhere and explore the awesome looking cities would rock, and enforce the fact that ninjas dont need noisy wars. just the stealthy kind. leave feedback plz. any new ideas are welcome. and i hope some game producer reads this and likes it

    actually, i just came up with a few more ideas.
    1: movement. Predator game. i think predators are cool. unfortunately, ppl keep messing them up. but in the latest game, i think the movement was pretty good. emphasize on those awesome ninja jumps, adding a 3rd dimension to the world.
    2: size. Some games are just too big. This should be the type of game where a couple thousand ppl should be playing, but it would feel as crowded as larger games. keeping the lag down could be crucial.
    3. stealth (?): stealth should play some roles in game. ambushing, assasinating, and spying should be in the game, but if things go wrong, u should be able to handle things (at first anyway).
    4. teams (?): teams are a vital part of the anime and manga, but do they fit into the gameplay? absolutely. but whether or not u will be assigned to them or itll just be the party system is up for debate.
    5. missions: not ur normal quests. i want the best in the game to come through this, and other pvp elements. yes, i said other pvp elements. my goal is to have offense defense or rival offense type games that pit players not on just or with just npcs, but other people as well. it adds unpredictability, and can double the number of qeusts without much work. first, u assault the castle, then u defend it. dueling and battlefields should also be included.
    6. enforcement of rules: a cool thing would be that if u were a malicious gamer, game-master shinobi hunters and jonin would pursue u until u paid the price for ur crimes.
    7. Player-made bounties: this is really just an idea i have that is in early stages, so i wont bother writing it. but suggestions about it would be nice.
    later :kkanbu

    Please use the edit button. Oh, and City of Heroes breaks the fantasy mold too.

    Yeah, a Naruto MMO would be a great PvP based MMO, but Naruto deserves something a little more fast paced than that.

    It would be retarded. Everyone would try to get Sharingan and pwn everyone. They'll find some unlimited chakra cheat and Amaterasu everything in their path and Tsukiyomi anyone they don't like.

    Don't forget, nobody except NPCs will ever be on the ground because everyone will be busy standing on the roof and trees yelling out "LOL I HAVE HIGH GROUND"

    Plus, 97% of the people will be SSJ6ShariganBob or something similiar. Suddenly, the Uchiha clan doesn't seem so wiped out anymore...

    On the plus side, if a lot of thought is put into it, it could be a great game. Since all ninja would have superspeed (to borrow a term from City of Heroes) built into them, travelling would be pretty simple. Just imagine a gang of thirty ninja all superspeed running towards a large demon fox or something... =)

    Its a great idea and the Naruto universe is perfect for a MMORPG. Only problem is I dont think Bandai is a decent enough company to create something that could smash WoW in the face.

    Ive played many of their games and even though I enjoyed them a lot(mainly due to story) they have unindepth game-play and lack a lot of volume. I think giving some other big name company the chance to work on this would be the best idea.

    Heh. this naruto mmorpg idea has been in the minds of everyone. I heard also rumors that viz is pulling some strings on an mmorpg. Read it on a forum somewhere. They wrote that it was in one of Viz's News bulletins or so.


    To tell the true a Naruto mmo is very possible to make. Bandai of course wouldnt be the company to ask making the game, but surely there are others. And by the way, someone was mentioning about customizing attacks so that they are different from others. well it is already happening with Conan the barbarian mmorpg where u customize your own fighting/fencing methods. u can even do tricks with your sword or axe. (look at their videos)

    The Incinerator

    if interested i have already ca5 computer pages with ideas for a naruto mmo

    A Naruto MMO would be a money maker. Especially with Naruto now in the states.

    Go around all the ninja villages and shit. Choose what village you want to be from, like 8 villages, 4vs4. Make your ninja and choose what kind you want to be... Focusing on Jutsu, Taijutsu, Genjutsu, or Weapons... Or a hybrid. Make bloodline abilities need to be gained, and once you choose a bloodline to pursue, you can't switch.


    Game would be cool.

    Sharingan transplant

    yeah forgot to mention about the bloodline ability. it could be like something u gain at the end of the game or during it. it would open a new "spesial" character slot, from which u could choose what path u want to go.
    Like in for example Star Wars Galaxies. You don't get to play as a jedi at once.
    You start off as a regular class type off person and during the game you unlock that "Spesial Slot".

    And another thing so to not have too many uchihas running arround we could make it that after some kind of lvl your character has you are set in death mode. which means that if you are killed by a pvp player you loose that character for good. this is mostly on pvp servers.
    (look again star wars galaxies and their Jedi system)

    and so if f.example a friend of yours who has the sharingan dies, and you have a Medic ninja nearbye who has some kind of transplant skill, you might then transplant one of the eyes on to your character. that is if the sharingan player accepts, so we wont have all going after those genkai players and killing all of them

    Why would they make sharingan so overpowered in a game? It's a fantasy game from fantasy cartoon, so they could do pretty much anything to balance it.

    that is true so thats why, by introducing other advanced bloodlimit "characters" you might find something interesting. if you just read what sort of things they have u might choose then the country where they exist/existed and play and try unlockin that "spesial" character slot

    Think a naruto game would be awesome. CHoose your village and what area you want to practice in. Random players get bloodline abilities or are born with demons inside of them lol some we haven't seen yet and some we have (in the manga naruto, not everyone has bloodline ability or even the opportunity to get it...so why make it available to everyone in the game? also the strongest players from each village would be the respective kages and not only be in charge of defending city but also their position). I would buy it. City of Heroes has great gameplay IMO especially for movement, adjust that to naruto, would be killer. Jedi academy has this really cool mind trick thing where you become invisible to opponent and they have to either run or use a power to counter, be cool if they made some awesome changes to it and tricked it for genjutsu in a naruto game. You could become missing nin, but to do so, you have to start from a certain point in village and fight your way out. Man, they could do some great things with a game like that, and If I had the technical know how, love to be on the development team. I'd be a taijutsu and ranged specialist with few elemental and forbidden jutsu...make my character a little weak against gen users but it'd still be friggin wicked. THey better make this an MMO lol

    this one wouldnt be "possible" because as you see world of warcraft has already 4 million players in it (i wont say that a naruto mmo would get as much since warcraft has had huge fanbase for at least 10? years)

    but if we could implement the SW: galaxies jedi player/slot system it would be even greater" as it goes for implementing a demon inside of you, one could always go on a raid with very high skilled players and try to fight one of the tailled demons and sealing it inside of the player who wants it.

    and here we can ad that each of the "9 Demons" could be a raid feature like in WoW with onyxia and so on...

    instead of MMO, why not have a game much like GTA:San Andreas, but tweaked a little to make it a bit funner to be a ninja.

    Couple of things. first: bloodlines and demons. A choice. when u reach a certain level, (like 20 or something like that) u make a choice. regular will get u pretty all around at first, with taijustsu coming easiest this way. genetic lines gives u a genjutsu boostm, but needs more work to sort out other attributes. Demons will give u a load of chakra, but will leave ur other catagories a bit unrefined.
    familiars: basically like pets, but u can have the option of taking traits (physical and technique) from ur familier ex: orochimaru: obviously snake. and demons (if chosen) will take that form. finally, 1 ambitious goal. players of extreme bonds with their demon and extremely high level would be able to summon that demon as their familiar. Theyd look extra cool.
    pace: as i mentioned before, pace will be upped. there will be no auto attacks and such. combat will be kinda like a fighting game, but more 3D. attacks will have no "beat" as i call it. stealth implements will also be given, like from splinter cell, but beefed up. as for lag, i hope to keep each world relatively small, with onloy a couple thousand players each. but this will fit the map to make it seem like the server is more crowded
    HAND SEALS EXPLAINED: ill need help for this. each hand seal is supposed to have a meaning, that when combined with other hand seals, will create the move. if we are to create moves, we need it to be precise. also, more of the hand seals must be discovered.
    Profiles: the bingo book is crucial. to create a community feeling, a "book" of all character profiles will be created, organized by village. pictures will be included as well as threat level and character style. also, u will be able to add ur own notes on the side.
    this is all my ideas for now. later

    I'm a huge fan of MMOs, mainly Mabinogi and Ragnarok Online.

    In any case, if any of you have played Mabinogi, you'd know that if the charatcers and landscapes were molded to Naruto style, it would be the most amazing experience ever. Anyway goto to check out what I mean by that.

    And yea I would buy it in an instant if it was cell shaded, even if it required a monthly fee.

    also you could attack members of opposing villages unless that village had a treaty with your village.if it's a member of your village or a member of a village with a treaty with your village you can fight them in the ninja spar arena(there would be one in every village)also you could be an expert in different kinds of missions,assassination,protection,capture,thieving,and war(war missions would be like gathering as many people as you can and charging al together to the opposing village(other common names would hokage,kyuubi,and uzumaki

    what i think how the mmo should be played as...

    there are all the villages and each village then has their unique skill. And when you made one character from that certain village... you can only make characters from the village. In the begining you start out as a novice and your not sure how to play and don't know what to do, sooo.. you go to training school! and there you get to choose what type of ninja style you want to play with. And your village is in a certain country which you choose, and then those countries are all against each other as pvp based, so basically your only allies are in which country your village is in.
