One Piece: Pirate Warriors is now available at retailers as well as on the PlayStation Network in Europe! Namco Bandai Games Europe has announced 10 packs of downloadable content (DLC) which include additional costumes and scenario’s to play in. The first three packs of European DLC hit PSN on September 26 with the other 7 making their way sometime in October.

Namco Bandai reveals the first three packs of DLC include Luffy with a samurai costume and Nami and Zoro dressed in traditional kimonos. We anticipate this will be the same downloadable content as the Japanese received. Check out the official press release below along with video examples of the DLC from the Japanese version of the game!

Shiver me timbers! NAMCO BANDAI Games Europe today announced that ONE PIECE: PIRATE WARRIORS for PlayStation®3 is now available at retailers and via digital download on PlayStation®Network. Developed by Omega Force / TECMO KOEI GAMES CO., LTD., the latest game based on the best-selling manga of all time has reached European shores in three equally piratical editions – standard retail, collector’s edition and digital.

The first nautical outing for the ONE PIECE series on PlayStation®3, ONE PIECE: PIRATE WARRIORS immerses players in the Straw Hat Pirates’ grand voyage, as they face up to hordes of pirate and Marine enemies and experience all the great moments from the anime right up to Marineford. Faithful to the original ONE PIECE manga by Eiichiro Oda, players will relive their favourite scenes in the shoes of pirates Luffy, Zorro, Nami and others, each with their signature moves, including Gomu-Gomu attacks.

Ten exclusive DLC packs are lined up for release from September 26th onwards, each featuring one of the best-loved characters from ONE PIECE with a special costume and an additional scenario. The first three DLC packs will feature Luffy with a samurai costume and Nami and Zoro dressed in traditional kimonos, with a new quest for each. Seven other fantastic DLC packs, each containing one character and an accompanying quest, will arrive later this October, so stay tuned!
