The second instalment of the One Piece franchise for PS3 is coming to the market and with its approaching, it is not possible to not make a vast, long post about this manga-inspired game that has managed to attract the adventurous gamers all over the world.
Trailers, information and snippets of past news are all included below!
Produced and created by Namco Bandai games, this project started out as the first One Piece game for the Play Station 3 console in the already distant March 2012. More than a year has passed since its release, but no one has forgotten about it. Instead, everyone is expecting with excitement the second instalment of the game – One Piece Kaizoku Musou 2 (One PIece Pirate Warriors 2).
This new game will come out to the market on two portions. North American buyers will have it available alongside Europe in the summer while Japan’s version will be released on March 20, 2013. Yes, you read this right – in 14 days!
Here is the first full trailer of the game as released on the official YouTube channel of Namco Bandai Games Japan:
The game will have many new features and will be available also for the PS Vita portable console, not only for the PS3. There will be new playable characters and graphic improvements (as visible from the video). Just recently it was announced that several Dynasty Warriors characters will be playable and downloadable for the Kaizoku Musou 2. Shichibukai Boa Hancock and her former colleague Jinbe will be playable. Enjoying the pleasure of participating in this collaboration between Namco Bandai and the Dynasty Warriors studio KOEI Tecmo will be two female characters. Diao Chan’s outfit from the 6th instalment of the game will be available for download for the attractive Hancock while Wang Yuanji’s clothes from the 7th instalment of the KOEI game will be up for grabs for the young Perona.
As a yet another reverence to the fans and buyers of the game in Japan, the first few games will include a special, limited edition code for the One Piece Film Z uniform for protagonist Luffy.
There will also be a limited edition ‘treasure box’ set which will not only include the game, but also an official game sticker-skin for the PS3, OST CD, a pin badge display booklet for the badges received with the previous game and 15 entirely new badges for the same collection.
