It was about time: super-popular action manga Naruto will be turned into a mobile social game, and it’s GREE that has scored the licensing rights.Tentatively named “NARUTO×GREE”, the social card battle RPG will hit GREE for feature phones next month, followed by a smartphone version in summer.
GREE says that they will use the characters and the setting of the Naruto anime series as the background for the game.
GREE’s feature phone users are already able to pre-register.
As the manga and anime are extremely popular in America, Europe and Asia, it’s not surprising that GREE also says the Naruto game will be eventually rolled out in English, too.
