They think people want to play a Naruto game; and game piracy may be so prevalent in China, that the only way they could make any money off of it is to make it an online game.

I don't really expect much from this, because I'm confused as to the sort of game it is, but I would be lying if I didn't think the Naruto universe has the rules/characteristics of a rather interesting MMORPG setting.

No one would play it cause it's Naruto, nor develop it like it would need to be developed, but I'd give it a try for a day because I am one of those guilty people who played the ninja class on Final Fantasy online. Video games and ninjas - I give anything that is a combination of this a try. Have had to since I had an Nintendo and the Ninja Turtle Video game.

The Asian market is THE place to be to make money from MMO games these days.
That's why they get stuff like a Dragonball Online game among various other things and we don't.
