One Piece is generally regarding as one of the most popular manga in the world, if not the number 1 manga in Japan. It’s been running for more than 650 weekly chapters without any signs of slowing down, and plays host to one of the most successful, both critically and commercially, regular anime series of all time. That said, could Tecmo Koei’s One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 possibly capture a fraction of that brilliance on the PS3? One would think so.
The new trailer for the same, advertising a trip to the New World, showcases new story arcs like the Skypiea Arc and characters such as Eneru – not to mention teasing the likes of Kuma and Marshall D. Teach. The action is also fast and furious as the Strawhat Pirates dispatch hundreds of enemies at once. If you ever wanted an indicator of the manga in fluid, fast motion, this is it.
Let’s see if it delivers compelling gameplay when it releases in Summer 2013.
