One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 will launch in western regions in summer 2015 on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and PC via Steam, Bandai Namco Games America announced today.
The latest Koei Tecmo Games collaboration inserts One Piece characters into the Dynasty Warriors hack-and-slash gameplay. It centers on the original One Piece storyline, beginning at Fushia Village where protagonist Luffy first embarks to realize his dream of becoming the Pirate King. Players have the opportunity to recruit every member of the Straw Hat Crew, including Fujitora, Trafalgar Law and Sabo.
One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 features known One Piece locations such as Marineford, Fishman Island, and Punk Hazard, as well as the kingdom of Dressrosa, an island dominated by the tyrant Donquixote Doflamingo aka the “Heavenly Demon.”
“The worldwide popularity of One Piece continues to grow due to the franchise’s fantastic action, storytelling, and character development,” Chris Gilbert, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Bandai Namco Games America, said in a prepared statement. “One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3’s magical blend of hijinks and humor with Dynasty Warriors’ frenetic gameplay style has produced a truly satisfying experience that One Piece fans will surely look forward to enjoying in the summer of 2015.”
