Namco Bandai have announced that the manga based, Ganbarion developed action RPG One Piece Unlimited World Red will be releasing in the western markets later this year for the PS3, Wii U, PS Vita and 3DS. No, we don’t have any specific release date yet, but I’m guessing Namco will divulge that information soon.
Namco have also released a trailer along with the announcement, which we’ve embedded above. Check it out if you’re interested in buying the game.
The 3DS and PS Vita versions of the game will include local multiplayer for upto four players whereas the PS3 and Wii U versions of the game will include split screen gameplay for two players.
“As one of the most successful manga we ever witnessed, One Piece is a phenomenon that deserves AAA adaptations,” said Hiroaki Ochiai, senior VP of IP strategy at Namco Europe. “We decided to team-up with Ganbarion to create a new opus for the “ Unlimited ” series. Thanks to their expertise, we are sure to have an amazing game where all the details from the One Piece universe will be perfectly pictured. On top of that, we are really proud and happy to have a never-before-seen scenario for this game.”
