One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 - Now with Even More Characters
It seems that Bandai Namco Games still has plenty of information to give on the new Pirate Warriors game, even though it comes out in Japan on March 26 (aka, tomorrow).
In addition to the long list of other characters they have introduced in the past weeks, Bandai Namco Games has added five more in this last round of previews. These five are:
- Edward "Whitebeard" Newgate
- First Division Commander Marco
- Admiral Akainu
- Admiral Kizaru
- and Monkey D. Garp
Each 30-second clip shows off each of the characters and their battle skills, giving the players a sneak peek at what they'd be able to do in the game. And in the previews, one of the previously announced locations in the game, the Marine headquarters, Marineford, appears.
In addition to the five characters previews, the game's official website began streaming short television commercials of the game. The three 15-second commercials show different characters like Red-Haired Shanks, Monkey D. Luffy, and Portgas D. Ace.
The third game in the Pirate Warriors series is to take place during the Dressrosa arc of the manga franchise One Piece, following Monkey D. Luffy and his crew's fight against Donquixote Doflamingo and his crew of pirates.
The game's to be first released in Japan on March 26th, for PlayStation 3, 4, and Vita. The Japanese Steam version of the game still has no confirmed release date. There are also extras included in the first copies of the game. The codes are to unlock Sabo's character early, special costumes for Monkey D. Luffy, and a character code in One Piece Treasure Cruise, the One Piece smartphone game. The game's release in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Australia is set for this summer.
