It’s only February 12, but it looks like some lucky person may have already gotten One Piece: Pirate Warriors (One Piece: Kaizoku Musou)! A Japanese blogger has released the back cover art for the up-coming Japanese version of One Piece: Pirate Warriors. Take this with a grain of salt because we’re not entirely sure if this is real. You may even want to call it a rumor since fans can get pretty creative with these things! If it is indeed true, however, then it looks like 1-2 players can play One Piece: Pirate Warriors online! Additionally, the blogger mentions there will be voice chat and the back cover has “4400MB” next to “HDD” meaning that the game will probably be a 4 GB install.
Now you may be wondering if the online is co-op, 1-on-1, fighting, or tag team. At this time we’re unsure as there hasn’t been any information revealed on that. Again though, take all this online talk and the picture of the back cover art as rumor for now. We don’t recall seeing any official word on this.
Unrelated to online – One Piece: Pirate Warriors will have a mode called Main Log and another called Another Log. Main Log will follow Luffy through the original One Piece story we all know and love. Another Log will put characters in the place of other characters such as Zoro, Chopper, Hancock, and Ace.
One Piece PS3, One Piece: Pirate Warriors (or One Piece: Kaizoku Musou in Japanese), is the first One Piece game on the Sony PlayStation 3. It will cover One Piece Part 1 as well as some of the story contents of the One Piece timeskip. The game is in development by Omega Force and will be published by Namco Bandai Games and Tecmo Koei in Japan on March 1, 2012. A European and North American release are possible based on trademark filings by Namco Bandai, but no official word has been released.
