The film is directed by Tsuneo Kobayashi while manga author Masashi Kishimoto provided the story concept, character designs, and exercisedcomplete editorial supervision. The film was first announced at

Synopsis
NARUTO is coming to a conclusion! The movie version fills the "vacuum" and goes beyond the original story.The Village Hidden in the Leaves, the location where the fated battle between Naruto and Sasuke took place. It is now two years
later…

The winter festival is approaching in Hidden Leaf Village. Naruto is at
Ichiraku Ramen, having fun with the friends he grew up with. Hinata has
knitted a scarf for him with love in every stitch, but it remains
undelivered, and she gives herself a hard time for being a coward.
Suddenly, a mysterious man appears. Naruto comes to the rescue in the
nick of time, but the man takes flight, leaving a disturbing message…
The moon approaches dangerously close! Is this a natural
disaster, or is it a warning for all shinobi?

An emergency meeting of the Five Kage is convened with the heads of
each nation. If nothing is done, the moon will disintegrate and its
remains will fall to Earth. The countdown to Armageddon begins. Panic
spreads among the shinobi. Naruto, along with Sakura, Shikamaru, Sai
and Hinata, sets out to investigate and comes upon an unusual
underground space where a giant curse mark is inscribed. A certain plan
and its unbelievable mastermind lie in wait.

Weave your hope into a new era. Do not give up on the future.Toneri Otsutsuki, a descendant of the progenitor of chakra, Kaguya Otsutsuki, who had engaged Naruto and Sasuke in mortal combat,appears with a squad of puppets and attacks with overwhelming force. Hinata falls into his hands. Meanwhile aboveground, the battle to protect the world from the meteorites seems futile. What is the final plan that Toneri speaks of? What is the tragic fate that connects the Otsutsuki and Hinata's Hyuga Clan? As the end of the world nears, unbending feelings
span through time and collide! The final story of Naruto, the hero who was once an outcast, is in love.

GameStart signs agreement with Taipei Game Show

GameStart signs agreement with Taipei Game Show. Image Source: Gamestart's FB page

Opportunity for gaming-related companies from Singapore to gain exposure

Singapore, 14 January, 2015 – Eliphant Pte Ltd, organiser of Southeast Asia’s premier gaming convention GameStart - which attracted over 12,000 visitors at its inaugural show in October this year - has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Taipei Computer Association, organisers of Taipei Game Show. The partnership will help encourage business initiatives, enhance market access and increase trade opportunities across thegaming industries in Singapore and Taiwan.

“Taipei Game Show is a well-regarded, established event and we are delighted to have signed this partnership agreement with them. The aim of this collaboration is to help indie developers from both countries find opportunities to promote their games to a wider audience, and give gamers in both markets access to even more exciting games and game-related content,” said Elicia Lee, Director, Eliphant Pte Ltd.

To be held from 28 Jan to 1 Feb at Taipei World Trade Centre, Taipei Game Show is one of the leading gaming events in Asia, with over 350,000 visitors attending in 2014. The upcoming show aims to increase interaction between local and overseas companies. With the success of

‘B2B – Indie Game Area’ last year, Taipei Game Show 2015 will organise a larger event,‘Indie Game Festa’, which will feature some of the most creative game developers fromaround the world.

Under the agreement, GameStart will have a booth at the B2B section of TGS on 28 & 29January and indie developers or gaming-related companies from Singapore have beeninvited to attend. Correspondingly, GameStart will offer booth space to Taipei Game Show at its 2015

event and likewise provide booth space for Taiwanese indie developers or small gaming-related companies.

So far, two GameStart participants have confirmed their attendance at Taipei Game Showas part of the arrangement – figurine producers Kinetiquettes and indie studio Liongeeks.

Kinetiquettes was founded by a group of enthusiastic individuals, passionate aboutfigurines and collectibles. The team has over 40 years of combined experience in the

video games and animation industry. Due to the nature of their work experience, they aim to introduce highly artistic and dynamic collectible statues unlike anything in the market.

Kinetiquettes not only creates its own line of collectibles based off popular licenses but also designs and manufactures statues and figures for clients from all over the world.

Liongeeks is a Visual Development Studio located in Singapore. Providing a wide range of visual aesthetic and design services to clients, the studio also seeks to provide a platform for content creators to be able to share their creations, and encourage more collaboration.

Elicia added, “The Singapore gaming industry is a mature market with PC, console and mobile gaming all having significant market share. With a population of just over five million, it is a small market. However, the Southeast Asia market is huge and we had visitors from around the region come to Singapore for last years’ show. We expect 2015 to be much bigger with even more people from the region coming to attend.”

About GameStart

Inspired by the excitement of E3, the community hype of PAX and the passion of gamers in Asia, GameStart is Southeast Asia’s premier gaming convention. Organised by industry veterans who are themselves gamers, GameStart seeks to bring the biggest and latest titles, eSports tournaments, meet-the-producer sessions, expert panels, and
everything gaming-related to audiences in Asia. The event also incorporates Founders Base, which aims to help promote independent studios and developers from Singapore and the region. The inaugural event in October 2014 saw over 12,000 visitors from around Asia.
