How to Play NWR
NWR is based on the standard MOBA/RTS formula found within games such as Dota 2 and League of Legends, but with some unique features that differentiate it as a Naruto based creation. The main aspects of the game include:
An entirely new roster of heroes, ranging from main characters such as Naruto Uzumaki, to side characters such as members of the Sound Five.
Models, portraits, and animations matching the diverse cast of characters within the popular series.
Custom abilities based on the immense number of techniques the characters have mastered over the course of the storyline.
New and old items renamed and reimaged to fit within the Naruto universe.
Dynamic music directly from the anime to add to the intensity.
Audio lines from the original Japanese voice actors to give each hero a voice.
A new map that should be familiar to both veterans of the MOBA/ARTS genre and fans of the manga/anime series.
Balanced gameplay, capable of being enjoyed both casually and competitively.
The current version of NWR supports 4v4 game mode, with 14 playable characters in total. You can choose from 11 classics from NWU, such as Naruto Uzumaki (Unlimited), Sasuke Uchiha (Unlimited), Sakura Haruno (Unlimited), Kakashi Hatake (Unlimited), Madara Uchiha (Reborn), Itachi Uchiha (Unlimited), Gai Maito (Unlimited), or 3 new characters exclusive to NWR, such as Shikamaru Nara (Reborn), Hinata Hyuga (Reborn), or Deidara (Reborn).
The matches take place on the original Dota 2 map, but with some modifications to suit the Naruto theme. For example, instead of Roshan, you will face Kurama, the Nine-Tailed Fox. Instead of runes, you will find scrolls that grant various effects. Instead of barracks, you will destroy towers that spawn minions.
The gameplay is similar to Dota 2, but with some differences in terms of mechanics and balance. For example, some heroes have unique resources such as chakra or clay that they use for their abilities. Some abilities have different effects depending on whether they are used on allies or enemies. Some items have special interactions with certain heroes or abilities.
The goal of the game is to destroy the enemy's Ancient, which is located at their base. To do so, you will need to work together with your team, use your skills wisely, aa16f39245
