    Awesome news! I love the first one albeit the rest of the crew and other characters’ playthrough were boring compared to Luffy.

    I’m looking forward to hearing more news.

    EDIT: Everyone else notice Enel screenshot in the bottom right corner? We might be getting his boss battle, or maybe the Thriller Bark arc, too?

    • xMCXx

      They will probably include the arcs they left out.
      Or at least the major enemies.
      Anyways, I’m hyped!

      • usagi_san

        I hope so!
        I’m so hyped for this, too. I’m interested to see how the Vita version will play. Also, will the Vita version be DL only for the people in NA?

        • More like both versions will be DL-only in North America. Did you forget how the first game was released?

          • usagi_san

            oh, yeah, totally forgot.

  • Already? Well, I guess I’m not really surprised… Considering how much content they have left to cover after Marineford.

  • I’m surprised… The first one must have sold well to warrant a sequel…

    • DrForbidden

      Dude, it’s One Piece…

      How could it not sell well? ;)

      • I was assuming that Manga fanbase =/= Game fanbase… But then again, Naruto has endless entries in the game category…

    • In Japan the game pre-ordered sales alone were over half a million, that is ALOT in fact it’s like the most for either a One Piece game and hell even DW games have a hard time selling that much in pre-orders.

    • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

      It was a huge seller, over 1 million copies sold. The game’s great though, despite the numerous slow-downs, so I hope they iron out the technological kinks in the sequel.

  • YES! YES! of course there was a sequel! First game sold over 1 million in Japan(hopefully we’ll get this one too in Europe otherwise Import time)

  • I really like musou-esque game.
    The Naruto one on PSP was really good too, hopefully they’ll make the sequel or something to Vita.

  • I L O V E One Piece

  • HassanJamal

    Awwwww yisssss One Piece on the go :D It better be cross buy!

    • I highly doubt Namco Bandai would do a cross buy campaign.

      • HassanJamal

        Hey, this isnt Capcom we’re talking bout here :) Im hoping they allow cross buy.

  • Kobracon

    SWEET! Can’t wait to see what they come up with for the New World versions of the Straw Hat Crew.

  • MrKappa

    Can’t wait for that trailer, hopefully it is better than the reveal trailer for the first game was.
    I also hope they cover the arcs better than the first game did even though the first game was great.
    Above all I hope Nami doesn’t play like crap again… especially time skip Nami.

  • KurisuMakise

    Good news! NB and KT have brought nice content to PS Vita so far.

  • new world ^^

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    Fuck Yeah

  • i want brook playable

  • PrinceHeir


  • hope they get rid of the stupid jumping ‘puzzles’. a musou game doesn’t need gimmicks like those. and of course fix the frame per second.

    otherwise, excited!
