Welcome to Friday Update #50!

50 solid weeks of continuous updates! We thought we'd like to reward you guys for sticking around with us so long. So join us in celebrating our 50th update with an in-game look at our Battle System!

Download the high quality version here.

We've come a long way and we're still marching on. Thanks again to all you guys who've stuck around with us from the beginning. And for those of you who are finding us for the first time thanks for taking the time to check us out!

We've worked really hard on our movement and melee system to make sure it's intuitive, fun, and fast. We've done the best we could to give you guys a solid Naruto experience as soon as you jump into a game and start battling your opponent. We can't wait to see what kind of combos you guys will be making up in the near future!

50 updates later and we're still going strong!

- The NNK Team

On the HL engine? o_0
I'd say the battle system looks better than ESF's, but I'd put them in different categories since both are awesome so far.

As for the looks it looks amazing for it's engine.

Great work guys, amazing as always :)

That looked great, I really loved the sprite hit effects. That really adds a naruto feel for some reason.

Great work!! Keep it up, looking forward to playing the game.

More characters are planned already. We're just doing the basics in our first release so when thats solid we can focus on additional things like more playable characters and such.

Out of the 80 some odd updates I've gotten today, this one excites me the most. I can't wait to get my hands on this. There is, however, one thing that bothered me; I think the blood decals should be reduced in size between 30-50%. At the moment they look too large.

Regardless, keep up the good work!

Yeah, we're still using the old HL blood decals. We just havn't got around to replacing them yet we've been so busy working on other features. Don't worry! Blood will look just as good when we're done!

WOW, I've never been into Naruto nearly as much as DragonBall Z, but I MUST say, the fighting system looks absolutely jaw-dropping, especially for the Half-Life engine, by the way, is the motion blur just video editing or is it actually in the game?

The majority of the updates still come out on time on Fridays. Sometimes because of our personal lives we can't get them to you on those days. It's still a Friday Update, and we'll do our best to get them to you every Friday or as soon as possible soon after.

Or we could just call it weekend update and wait till Sundays to update when we feel lazy. But I don't think you guys want that.

Looks good.
When standing on the wall, view is rotated to match the character.
But when standing on the ceiling, upside down, why is the view not flipped then? I'd also like it flipped there as well then.

The view is always rotated accordingly to your character. There is a scene in the beginning of the movie that shows it. The later one was most likely recorded in spectator view.
