What kind of game is Naruto Online

Naruto Online is a fighting game, a strategy game and a role-playing game in which the player has to create a team of ninjas and accomplish various missions with them. The game can be played in solo but it is more rewarding to play it with others players. And when it comes to the multiplayer aspect, the system is quite excellent in that you can accomplish team missions with others players without having to interact too much with them if you don't want to.

A fighting game

In Naruto Online, the game focuses heavily on team battles. Each team in the game are composed of 7 ninjas : 4 who will deployed on the battlefield and 3 substitutes who can replace them mid-fights in some missions. Also in some others missions and game modes like Teams Instance or Ranked Battles, it is possible to see 3 teams from each side fighting it out. It means that, at max you can have a battle involving 24 ninjas, plus the invocations appearing in some combos, plus the clones some ninjas like Naruto or Kabuto can create, plus the 3 substitutes from each team who can replace their team members in some missions,... Like you see, a lots of ninjas can participate in a single battle.
Also, sometimes, the player's team will fight single opponents and if he wants, the player can choose to fight theses single opponents with 1 ninja instead of 4, so it is also possible to play 1vs1 fights in the game.

Now, when it comes to the gameplay mechanics, the fights are turn-based and the IA does automatically all the melee attacks.
So the players can just choose what ninjas in their squads perform their special moves, when and what ninjas from the opposite teams must be targeted.
Said like this, the players' involvement in the fights could seem limited but it is not the case : If for example, one player makes his characters manages to make the special moves of all his characters availables in the same turn and use them all on one ninjas from the opposite team, it can takes him out or more often weakens him enough to finish him in the next 1-2 turns.
Also, the choice of the target can decide some fights : For example if a player manages to take out the medical ninjas or ninja who can resurrect their team members first, it can gives him a big advantage.
Plus there are some moves which can interrupt an enemy which is performing the signs for his technics. If the interruption is done in time, the enemy's move will be canceled and he won't do any special moves during the turn.
Now, each characters have their strenghts and weaknesses as well as various abilities like paralysing the opponents, using mind control on them, lowering their defence or resistance, ect ...

A strategy game

The importance of creating complementary teams

In the game Naruto Online, it is very important to create teams of ninjas who can combine together in order to complete missions and or duels against others players. Also, the positions of the ninjas in formations is very important. For example, it isn't a good idead to put a character like Sasuke in the front line because he may be very powerful with ninjutsu but taking damage isn't is best ability. But if you put him behind characters who have a high defence and resistance in your ninjas team, he will be very useful to deal heavy damage to the enemy. Same if you want to include in your squad a character who has the ability to stop the opponents doing their moves: If you put this character in the front ligne, it will increase his chance to interrupt enemies doing their technics but he will also be hit more by melee attacks.
Also, some characters have immunities towards taijutsu such as the puppets of ninjutsus who can only be damaged if you use ninjutsu technics on them.
Finally, there is also the affinities of the ninjas to take into consideration : As an example, a ninja who use lightning-based technics will be advantaged in a fight against a ninja who use Earth-based technics (Just like Kakashi vs Kakuzu in the manga).
Well, depending who is your opponent, your team will be different.

The fighting mecanics

If Naruto online is a turn-based game, it is still possible for a ninja or his whole team to do several attacks during the same turns : Some ninja technics makes it possible and also some ninjas have this ability like Rock Lee or Zabuza (but they can't do it all the time). But even without that, if a character launches a melee attack on the enemy team and if he is complementary with 1, 2 or the 3 ninjas of his team, they will do a combo attack and after that the 3 others ninjas will do their normal attack. Plus, in top of that, some ninjas have a "prompt" attack, which can be used whenever the player wants, granted theses characters have enough chacra to perform their move.
Added to that, some characters can create clones during the fights or invocate dead ninjas like Orochimaru, resurrect their fallen teamates like Chiyo, heal them like Sakura or Tsunade or prevent them to use any melee attacks during one turn by blinding them with fog like Zabuza, ...
There are even characters who can transform the arena in which the fight takes place like the first Hokage Senju Hashirama.

A Role-playing game

If a player wants to progress in the game Naruto Online, he has to recruit ninjas, equip them with various objects and piece of equipment and improve their level, make them evolve, cultivate them, refine and purify their equipments, ect ... Passed level 53, the player can even capture beasts so he can summon them during battles (The invocations are summoned when the ninjas from the team are making a combo).

An MMORPG but which can be played in solo

You don't need to be part of a group or to talk to people to play the game but doing so grant ninja tools, Xp and others advantages.
Now, playing with others don't require to have much contacts with them. You need 2 players for a team mission ? Use the automatic messages provided by the game to send an impersonal invitation : "(Insert username here) needs people for a team mission. Come join the team". Then, when the mission is finished, just disband the team with one click. This is as simple as that.
Now, the players have also the possibility to join a group and fight others groups in scheduled events, or give them advices to progresse, and even help them in some missions which can be done alone or with the help of 2 others players.
