Wii U version still digital-only.

One Piece: Unlimited World Red

Namco Bandai will release a physical version of One Piece: Unlimited World Red on PS Vita in North America, the company announced.

The PS Vita version will be exclusive to GameStop and EB Games Canada.

The Wii U version is still a digital-only release, as far as what’s been announced. The PlayStation 3 and 3DS versions have previously been confirmed for physical releases.

Today’s news follows the company’s initial announcement that the PS Vita version would be digital-only when it launches later this year.

If you missed the news this morning, Namco Bandai also announced that the game will have a new Coliseum Mode featuring Trafalgar Law and Donquixote Doflamingo. (We’ve also added the high-res U.S. box art to the gallery in that post.)

    • DXVII

      I know right.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Now we need a Tales of vita localization, then we know the world is ending.

    • HighBrowDrifter

      Imagine if they manage to get their act together and even localize S.A.O for the Vita!

      • Renaldi Saputra

        localizing SAO to US would be Bandai Namco USA’s april fools

    • pixxxelz

      april fools!?

    • Renaldi Saputra

      remember that this is not an exclusive PS Vita game

      • TheExile285

        I know. But considering Namco skipped the Vita version of Pirate Warriors 2 entirely not too long ago, this is surprising.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          at least yes

        • Elvick

          Plus the digital only release of DBZ: Battle of Z in NA.

  • Brian

    Wait, so it’s exclusive to Gamestop Canada and EB Games Canada, or EB Games Canada and Gamestop?

  • crimsonidol

    So they actually see a higher chance of a successful retail-release for the Vita than the Wii U. Wait, which date is it?

  • Albel Nox

    were getting old and we will never see the future again so they need to release those games international as quickly as possible o-o

  • HighBrowDrifter

    *Drools*….Ah yeah, gimme some o’ that One Piece for my Vita (∩❛ڡ❛∩)

  • Gojira Twit

    Wow I might finally get a physical game for my Vita. Huzzah. I don’t even know what they look like or where they go in the system.

  • Flervick Mangosteam Godlike En

    weeeh hope namco will also reconsider making an english release for tales of heart and one piece pirate warriors 2 in ps vita

    Day 1.

    This is how they should do it if they don’t view it as viable. Do a limited release. Retail exclusive has it’s drawbacks yeah, but I can compromise. You can’t get everything you want. And this is probably the best way they could do it.
