In my opinion, Naruto is one of the few anime that would translate well to an mmo.

Classes pretty much create themselves. There are 3 different types of jutsu Genjutsu, Taijutsu and Ninjutsu. Then there are 5 main elements within Ninjutsu plus combination elements like Wood and Magma.

Could have;

Genjutsu Specialist- Support class. Buffs, Debuffs Dots ETC.
Taijutsu Specialis-Physical fighter. Can tank or DPS, most weapon options
Medical Ninja-The healer obviously. Can DPS using a Kabuto like fighting method
Water and Earth Ninja-Gains Wood style ninjutsu at high levels. Can tank, DPS or heal with special water jutsu
Fire and Earth Specialist-Can learn Magma style attacks at high level. Can tank or DPS
Wind and Lightning Specialist-Stealth specialist that uses wind and lightning based assassination techniques
Summoning Specialist-The pet class

Weapons would also be plenty varied, though I think armor would be a bit of an issue. Though if they had a style system like in DCUO where the specific piece of gear can look like whatever you want it would be fine.

Setting the game within the previous Great Ninja War would also set up the world as well as the story with no issue. Factions would be a set of allied Shinobi villiages. Setting it within the previous world war would also grant the developers so much more freedom than setting it during Naruto's time.

Gameplay would obviously have to be more action based like Guild Wars 2, TERA, DCUO etc... rather then old school hotkey based gameplay.

Ninjutsu and Genjutsu users could have a summoning for a mount while Taijutsu specialists could get a special Ninja Run mode (think Worgen running wild from WoW)

Would you play?

Is there another anime you think would make a good MMO? Describe it for us

Well if it would somewhat turn out the way you describe here, - yes definitely.

Something that I think would be awesome; that you actually have to execute different keys in order to use a "jutsu" and not a simple keybinding to do e.g "Kage Bunshin No Jutsu".

Gives me the chills thinking about a game like that.

Now that you mention it Naruto's world actually "could" make a good mmo. You already have factions, each faction already has "specializations" in different skills, and there is plenty of justifications for the "trinity" most mmo's run on.

In fact for a pvp based mmo it would be hard to come by a better setup.... WEIRD!!!

I am not sure how well it would work in America but I am sure your idea would do well in Asia etc. Kinda makes me wonder why no one has tried to do more with Naruto games up to this point other than fighting games and quasi open world stuff.

Yeah, it has all the "presets" for it to be a good MMO in my opinion.

That's the one thing I would fear the most, - PvP. It would be hard balancing a game like that towards PvP, or well it would be a lot of work.

That's a great idea. If Naruto were to become a MMO, I would definitely play it

I would play it. Maybe even say goodbye to TERA for it - of course if it ended up good.
But honestly. A MMORPG Naruto could easily go both ways. It could end up great, epic, just lovely. But a lot of people would have high expectations for it, which means it also easily could fail.

Yes, I would love to play a Naruto MMORPG! There is a somewhat similar rpg on facebook called Ninja Saga that I play. It's obvious that it is based on Naruto, but it is somewhat basic compared to what could be created.

I think a naruto MMORPG would be killer if they made their own engine for it. Kinda Like SWG before it went under changes and upgrades which ruined the game, ironically, in order to "compete" with WoW

I would stick to Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. You don't think it's anime well it is being made by Japanese developers.

Check out my profile for more info.

I probably would actually. Naruto has a pretty expansive lore.
