One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2, the sequel to last year’s One Piece: Pirate Warriors , is coming to PlayStation 3 via PlayStation Network in North America this summer, Namco Bandai has announced.
The game was previously announced for a PlayStation 3 release in Europe this summer, and a PlayStation 3 and PS Vita release in Japan on March 20.
The sequel sees the Straw Hat pirates explore and conquer “wondrous and mysterious” islands, such as Skypiea, while traveling through the New World in the “bizarre realm” beyond the Grand Line. Characters like Luffy, Sanji, Zoro, and Nami will reappear and new characters like Eneru will make their first-ever PlayStation 3 appearance.
“The successful collaboration between Tecmo Koei Games and Namco Banadi Games will provide excitement never seen before, surpassing the previous title with more of Dynasty Warriors‘ excitement and One Piece’s wildly popular adventures,” says Wyman Jung, Associate Brand Manager at Namco Bandai Games America Inc. “Our goal is to bring a fresh and riveting gameplay experience fit for fans aspiring to be the next Pirate King.”
