Healthy start for Namco Bandai's PlayStation sequel.

First day shipments for One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 in Japan have surpassed 500,000 units, Namco Bandai has announced.

The PlayStation 3 and PS Vita game was made available today in Japan. Its predecessor, last year’s One Piece: Pirate Warriors, reached total shipments of over 1.2 million units worldwide.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is due out for PlayStation 3 in North America this summer and for Europe in August.

    Over 500 000 eh? I’m guessing over 75% of that is the PS3 SKU and 25% of that is the Vita SKU but that might even be too generous…as 25% of that would be 125000, hmm which would be pretty healthy, honestly. This little port might be the best selling Vita game if both platforms grow and my estimate isn’t off.

    100K Vita, surprise me pls. Oh well in the reality in should be 30K ish due to low shipment

  • MrKappa

    Not even surprised. Based on the demo this game is an incredible improvement over the first and that one was fun.

    OP is an unstoppable steamroller in Japan. Glad it sold so well. It’s kinda perfect for Vita so really interested in actual Vita SKU sales numbers.

    haven’t bought the first game yet.

    heard this was like Fist of the North Star Ken’s Rage 2, that it’s more of a Updated version(like Ninja Gaiden 3 Razor’s Edge) and not a sequel.

    definitely getting this!

    rarely watch the anime, but i love the aesthetics of this game :)

    congrats Namco Bandai and Tecmo Koei!!!
