According to a press release from Oasis Games, the studio is in the middle of ongoing English-language server merges for Bandai-licensed Naruto Online. The game originally launched in the west last summer; it’s a turn-based browser MMO built on the original anime and is even voiced by the anime’s actors. The merges aren’t really a bad thing, as players are flocking to the thread to put forward their servers for much-needed merges.
“Starting today onwards, we will be collecting inputs from players for server merger purposes,” writes the company on its forums. “This thread will be renewed on weekly basis to ensure continuous communication between players and moderators in regards to server and merger status. Please be informed that a server need to be at minimum age of 2 month starting from the date it opened as one of the requirements to be merge. Server merger will take place once every 2 weeks. We have records of the activity rate, which are taken into consideration for merging.”
