HANGZHOU, China, September 7, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ --

NGames has announced that "Shippuden", Pockie Ninja's exciting new expansion, will be launching on September 9th! A brand new trailer and new character bios are available now.

Naruto and Bleach inspired webgame, Pockie Ninja will be rolling out the massive Shippuden expansion on September 9th. The expansion will introduce a host of new content to the popular free-to-play MMO, including new characters, outfits, events and storyline quests to follow.

Shippuden focuses on the introduction of the Akatsuki, a group of people who aim to plunge the world into darkness. The new chapter of Pockie Ninja will showcase the primary members of the Akatsuki, continuing the action packed journey of Naruto and his friends in all new ways.

In Shippuden, a grown-up Naruto finally meets with Sasuke again, only this time Sasuke appears to be indifferent, powerful, and has been overtaken by a desire for revenge. Even worse, Sasuke appears to have completely ended his friendship with Naruto and Sakura.

Can Naruto retrieve his friend before it's too late? And what of Konoha village, will Sasuke destroy it, or will he be stopped before that happens?

NGames has revealed more of the characters that players can expect to meet on this epic new journey. A brand new Shippuden trailer has also been released, showcasing the new characters and their powerful moves in action:

Revenger of Destiny - Hebi/Taka Sasuke.

I've decided on revenge. That's always been my purpose of living - Sasuke

Under the guidance of Orochimaru, Sasuke turned his back on the village of Konoha and gained greater power. After a confrontation with Uchiha Itachi, he finally understood that what his brother did in the past was to protect him. However, Sasuke chose a totally different path from his brother after this revelation. He met his teammates later, changed his team's name from Hebi to Taka, and made a new goal - destroy Konoha and revive the Uchiha clan in his own way.

Son of the Prophecy - Sage Naruto

There's no short cut to becoming Hokage! - Uzumaki Naruto

When Uzumaki Naruto finished his training in Mount Myoboku, he became the first ninja to initiate 'Sage Mode' without performing toad-like traits. When in Sage Mode, Naruto's speed and strength increase dramatically; he can also sense danger around him and attack in a wider range. During the battle against the Defence of Pain, Naruto used his sage mode and killed several forms of Pain alone.

Ninja from Kirigakure - Taka Member Suigetsu Hozuki

I could also kill Orochimaru, you were just closer to him. - Suigetsu Hozuki

Suigetsu is a member of Sasuke's group, Taka. Instantly recognizable by his white hair and shark-like teeth. As a child prodigy of Kirigakure, Suigetsu is quite talented and powerful. He can transform his body into liquid form at will. His ambition is to inherit the title of Seven Ninja Swordsmen of the Mist and become its leader.

Chakra-sensing Ninja - Taka Member Karin

Sasuke looks cool even when he's a mass of bruises! - Karin

Karin has an exceptional chakra sensing skill and is a willing member of Taka. She appears calm and in control at times, but seems to be both dazzled and scared by Sasuke. What is on her mind when she sees Sasuke?

New Features and Events

Not only are the Akatsuki an important storyline of the Shippuden expansion, they will bring whole new outfits and a brand new outfit recast system to Pockie Ninja.
