The guys over at Namco Bandai Games Japan recently released some of the latest financial numbers and on top is the great Captain Luffy as part of One Piece: Pirate Warriors! In terms of anime games, anyways.
The real number one and two on Namco Bandai’s list are Dark Souls, which shipped 1.19 million units and Ace Combat Assault Horizon which followed with 1.07 million unit. However, both of those games shipped figures include the North American and European numbers.
For One Piece: Pirate Warriors, almost 1 million copies (940,000 to be exact) have been shipped since the March 1st release in Japan alone! That number can only going to get larger as the game will be sailing over to Europe in November of this year. North America will be getting a digital release so we’re not sure if Namco Bandai will be able to include it in the “shipped” numbers.
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 covers One Piece Part 1 as well as some of the story contents of the One Piece timeskip. The game was developed by Omega Force and published by Namco Bandai Games and Tecmo Koei in Japan on March 1, 2012. The game is expected to be released on the PlayStation Network through digital download in North America and Europe sometime later this year.
