Oasis Games and Bandai Namco have announced that Naruto Online will be getting a slate of new player events to celebrate Valentine's day. From February 9 to February 15, players can participate in the special "Fateful Encounters" event to unleash romance, collect treasure keys, throw shurikens to get bonus points and much more.
The Fateful Encounters event encourages players to join forces with other ninjas to combine fate symbols and earn Fate Points. If treasure lights up your eyes, complete Daily Missions and Plot/Elite Instances to earn Treasure Keys that can be redeemed for special rewards. There's also a Colorful Balloons event, which awards you points for popping balloons with shurikens earned through Daily Missions.
Starting on February 12, two additional events will offer players additional Valentine presents: Recruitment Feedback, which offers rewards for Tendo Treasure or Seal Treasure draws, and Limited Refinement, which provides free time-limited Wish Credits very time players level up equipment to a new Refine level.
For those that never heard of the game before, Naruto Online is entirely set in the Naruto universe, and faithfully follows the Naruto story portrayed in the anime series. Naruto Onlne adds five brand-new characters that represent the elements of earth, water, fire, wind and lightning. Players can choose to become one of these characters and start a new adventure, gaining experience in a variety of different types of quests and gameplay modes. Players can also recruit from 170 familiar ninjas from the series including Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura to build their own team.
In our review, while we praised the game for allowing fans to relive the story of Naruto, the automatic turn-based system and huge amount of grind needed dragged down the experience.
