As most of you know, many people from our development team work on Naruto: Naiteki Kensei while they work on Earth's Special Forces. As allies, we tend to help each other out with code, graphics, models, sprites, maps, and more. But, unfortunately, just recently, both projects have been having many members leave both development teams. Due to the decline in activity and progress, both teams sat down and had a joint meeting in the middle of March to discuss what to do now. Instead of letting each project die off separately, we decided to do our only option and what's best: merge teams and combine our efforts into one mod, Nateiki Special Forces.
We couldn't be more happy to announce this new merged project that we've been working on in secrecy until now. Don't fret about losing characters, none of that will happen. Characters from both Earth's Special Forces and Naiteki Kensei will be featured in this mod. While it may seem unfair, we've actually found a fantastic balance between both characters. For the Naruto team to catch up to the flying DBZ characters, they'll be using wall walking by launching off of the wall and assaulting the flying characters with melee. Power Struggling will remain in the game, but Jutsu's such as Sasuke's Katon Goukyakyuu will be added to the Power Struggling brawl. Power Struggle wise, it will work just like the Generic Balls in 1.2. Both Swooping and Dashing will remain in the mod, and they both work absolutely perfect with each other.
We know this sounds like a silly idea, it may even be painful to some of you that have been following ESF and NNK since the beginning that we're merging into one whole project, but think about the team's perspective. This is very beneficial for both parties, and we can't wait to share this Naruto vs. DBZ brawl experience with you all when the time comes!
Also, please note that due to me(Damaera) being busy for the past two weeks for personal reasons, we're decing to post the updates on Wednesday until my schedule clears up.
Thank you for sticking with us through the end, guys! See you next week!
