What happens when Naruto ends?
Hey everyone, I would just like to bring attention to the fact that Set28 is covering a lot of ground, anime/manga wise. It covers the entire war, all the way to the Tobi vs Naruto battle. Sure, there are still cards that they can go back and print (ex Jokey Boy, Dan, etc.), but it still covers a huge chunk of Naruto.
So, on a related note, I'd like to get a little discussion going; do you think this game can survive when Naruto manga/anime ends (Kishimoto has stated we're reaching the climax of the series, as evidenced by the appearance of the mega-boss Madara and 10-tails).
On the one hand, I like to think yes. From a competitive stand point, they can just keep making new versions of the characters introduced. Many ninja/jutsu only have 1-2 versions, so there's that as well. But on the other hand, a big thrill of the new set for me has always been seeing new characters/jutsu and how they will be implemented into the CCG. Artwork for cards, at least for Ninjas, is also in pretty short supply. Eventually it would have to be reused, or we get things like Chibi cards or other types of non-standard images.
So, do you think the game will survive just be making cards based on the whole series of Naruto even with no new manga being released? Or is a sequel/spin-off of Naruto (and in turn, to be made into cards) necessary to continue the game?
