"What's Ninja Saga, anyway?"
Ninja Saga by Emagist Entertainment is an alpha version Web Role Playing Game that is inspired by the popular anime, Naruto.
"Ninja Saga is a very thrilling and interesting RPG as it allows players to interact with one another, and at the same time enjoy the storyline. We are very positive that once RPG gamers try this new game, they will be fascinated by the new characters, challenging quests, cool items and weapons, customization preferences, and the audio and visual effects used in the online game," shares Emagist.
