CERGY-PONTOISE, FRANCE – 5 July 2012 – If there’s even an ounce of pirate in you, you need to brace yourself for some major seven seas adventuring as NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe announces the release date of ONE PIECE: PIRATE WARRIORS for PlayStation®3. Developed by Omega Force / TECMO KOEI GAMES CO., LTD., the latest game based on the best-selling manga of all time is heading to Europe in equally piratical editions – standard retail and digital – with both unleashing their heavy swell of mayhem and adventure in EMEA and Australasia this coming September 21st, 2012.
ONE PIECE: PIRATE WARRIORS is the Straw Hat Pirates’ debut on PlayStation®3 and promises to drench players in a tidal wave of adventure as they face up to hordes of pirate and Marine enemies while drinking in all the great anime moments right up to Marineford. Faithful to the original One Piece manga by Eiichiro Oda, the game features the best-loved characters and almost all the main adversaries from the One Piece universe.
Players will be able to relive their favourite scenes in the shoes of the pirates themselves, including Luffy, Zoro, Nami, and more, each with their signature attacks. The story mode will drop players right into the heart of the rich One Piece universe filled with beloved characters, powerful enemies, touching moments and memorable scenes. Players can also team up with their “nakama” (One Piece speak for “friends”) and tackle challenges together in online and offline co-op modes for a dose of real pirate camaraderie.
ONE PIECE: PIRATE WARRIORS for PlayStation®3 will lower the gangplank on September 21st, 2012, in standard retail editions and as a digital download. For more information about NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe and its entire line up of games please visit www.namcobandaigames.eu.
