Tags: One Piece, PlayStation 3, Videos,

The One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is now available on the Japanese PlayStation Network (click here for instructions on how to get it). It features Luffy and Law as playable characters and even has a co-op mode! Saiyan Island’s Kaitou has downloaded the demo and recorded video showing off the opening and gameplay from it below. You’ll see that when Luffy uses Haki, Usopp pops out for a few seconds. For Law, Zoro does the same.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is an action/adventure in development by Tecmo Koei’s Omega Force. The game will be published by Namco Bandai Games in Japan (PS3/PSVita) on March 20, 2013 and Europe/North America (PS3 only) sometime in the summer of 2013.

  • Tonizerna

    This WILL BE BEST GAME EVER cant wait to play myself

  • lightdarkgamer

    nice i like it xD …. 1 of the best game 2013 !!!

  • Tsukuyomi Ren

    Dont wanna be bitching, but i somehow have issues with laws moveset…
    Dunno what it is that bothers me, but for some reason it feels wrong

  • Shinobuden

    Played the demo and I’m awe struck. Music is really good, combat is a lot more fluent than it’s predecessor, framerate seems to have been improved but maybe it’s just me, feels great to be able to move about in an open space instead of feeling claustrophobic. I could go on but…just everything about this game is amazing. Feels like I’m going to die of hype before this one too.

    THE best game 2013 :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    OMG OMG OMG you saw the character roster?!?!?!?!?! 36 chars *_* *_* *_*

  • OPman

    IS THERE REALLY 36 PLAYABLE CHARACTERS

  • http://www.facebook.com/michael.autery.5 Michael Autery

    is it going to have a versus mode?

  • EighteenSky

    Downloading as I type, doubt it’ll disappoint me in any way.

  • PB360

    Maybe it’s the focus on the sword rather than the reality f**king like in the manga, which considering its a game is too be expected.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000279720730 Alex Harris-Wilson

    The game needs a little bit more of a story…Less fighting more story thats just my opinion.

  • unleashrage

    The Character selection screen is more than 27 slots like the rumoured list stated so more playables like mr2, mr3, arlong, hacchi, lucci, kaku and jyabura perhaps?

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    Yeah 36 slots *_*
    I hope for characters like kid , x drake , bonney, TASHIGI etc *_*

  • Hanizcze

    I cannot find it -.- I’m a newbie with ps3

  • caio

    if u count logicaly … the straw hats alone are gonna take up 18 slots ! all the rest of the characters were already announced except one wich will be blackbeard !

  • unleashrage

    this isn’t cc2 you know the last one piece game didnt take up additional slots for costumes for luffy who had like 8 or so zoro and sanji who had 2 so i don’t see why in this game they would need additional slots.

  • unleashrage

    just press directional button right a few times on jp psn

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    I think/hope so :) Acutally there are 26 Chars confirmed :
    Luffy,Zoro,Nami,Sanji,Usopp,Chopper,Robin,Franky,Brook,Whitebeard,Ace,Jinbe,Hancock,Enel,Kuma,Perona,Law,Smoker,Akainu,Kizaru,Aokiji,Marco,Buggy,Croco-Boy,Mihawk,Garp = 26 Chars
    => 10 STILL HAVE TO BE CONFIRMED *_*

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    NO, it’s like dynasty warriors=No Versus

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    Hahahaha, Tomb Raider is better:)

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    I’m going to play soon, hm i wonder if this one will be like the first game…

  • UchihaG

    Seems better to me than Storm 3… yes there are only 36 characters, but everyone of them is made with so much love and dedication, unlike Storm 3 where most characters were only copied from the predecessor, and there are plenty of combos, new attacks and really well-drawn One-Piece-style fights! I love it!

  • http://www.facebook.com/ynotenshi Yami No Tenshi

    With Blackbeard and PTS strawhats, you reach the 36 playable characters.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ynotenshi Yami No Tenshi

    Warriors orichi on Wii U have a versus mode. I think that in PW3 or 4, it could have one.

  • kisame007

    you deserve a like

  • http://www.facebook.com/ynotenshi Yami No Tenshi

    ‘Cause it was just costumes. Now it’s 2 different gameplay and movesets. On the official website there is a new trailer showing the characters selection screen, including support characters.

  • kisame007

    i want eustass kid

  • EighteenSky

    It’s like you ignore everyone who constantly reminds you that there are many Musou games that have versus modes.

  • Shinobuden

    It’s different in a lot of ways. Everything looks the same, but it felt like I was playing a completely new and different game when compared to the first. I’m sure not everyone will feel the same way, but that’s what it felt like to me.

  • Sharnerius1

    Weren’t you the only one bashing the game?

  • Drewtitan22

    Its not just you man lol I felt the same way after playing it, then I thought about all of the other characters we get to be

  • Guest

    i download it now the demo and i can’t play it why?what happend?

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    No, i wasn’t

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    PW 4 maybe…

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    i want Gol,D.Roger

  • http://www.facebook.com/alyxandar.szasznicholson Alyxandar Szasz-Nicholson

    I concur with this assessment of the missing 10 slots.

  • EighteenSky

    Yeah he is.

  • http://www.facebook.com/alyxandar.szasznicholson Alyxandar Szasz-Nicholson

    Did we forget about Smoker, Vergo, Tashigi, and Scotch just now? I think, considering the efficiency and pace of the combat, his moves and the way they effect the area are awesome. We have to remember that this is a game based around 36 characters, rather than one individual character. It’s because of the large roster, that they can’t create the breakable/separating models for each enemy, that would make Law’s power work just as it does in the anime.

  • unleashrage

    Yes i saw the new trailer yesterday

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    and why has it to be especially YOU ,who reply on my comment xD

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    of course roger wont be playable its obvious
    that kid will be playable is most likely

  • Kiera

    Loving this Game, still love the first but the second is way better. My Goty can’t wait for my Japanese Version.

  • PB360

    That’s pretty much what I was saying. That would be a lot of work which is unnecessary considering he has a good moveset.

  • http://www.facebook.com/sting.hawtassever Stiŋg Whitėdragoŋ Eücliffė

    i want bonney , kid , Gekko Moriah , Marshall D. Teach , Magellan and Lucci to be Played

  • disqus_tDQrxndeUt

    in the wiki it says only 26 playable characters confirmed and in the demo we have 36 characters slots. does it means you have moriah blackbeard and magellan as playable and 7 more?? maybe juzo and vista?

  • http://www.facebook.com/daniel.d.andrade.1 Daniel De Castro Andrade

    Hell Nooo, mothafuckeerrss!! damm you omega force!
    Where is Shankss??why magellan and the others are not playable! nooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ej

    what is their offical website?reply pls

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001759641597 Donald Barnett

    You are pretty correct on that. And I used to love the storm series, but im not gonna talk about that on a one piece page

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001759641597 Donald Barnett

    Lol. Thats clever :)

  • unleashrage

    you have to put the dots in. bandaigames(dot)channel(dot)or(dot)jp/list/opm/pc/spec(dot)html

  • http://www.facebook.com/ynotenshi Yami No Tenshi

    Ahah, I tried to give it but links are apparently not allowed.
    There is also a new scan to confirm Boa and Jimbei as playable, and shows also new costumes for Boa and Perona (from Dynasty Warriors characters), very sexy ;)

  • unleashrage

    yes i know i saw on gematsu yesterday, yet saiyanisland haven’t posted them, i may just stick with gematsu as they are fast with scans and information and post all news they find unlike this site.

  • http://twitter.com/Dabers Alex Ndabananiye

    Ha is it because you are trying to press X to navigate instead of O lol

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    i don’t know

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001759641597 Donald Barnett

    This game was pretty chaotic. It was 2 much fun. Cant wait for release

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    nice! so are you a NA fan or Europe? because i can imagine you’d rather have the game dubbed in english right?

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    I can’t wait for it either! Say are you a fan of the english dub? because we have a good chance of getting it dubbed and need a lot of help!

  • narutonatsu

    u can’t really compare both games. there two different games bud.

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    blackbeard has not been confirmed playable, only 26 fighters so far.

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    I agree with you on that. So i take it your a dub fan? if so we have a good chance of getting the game dubbed for its summer release outside of japan! we could use a bit more help if you want!

  • narutonatsu

    Shanks?

  • sam

    I wish this game had Vs. Mode like storm 3 though. I want to face other people with these characters, the dynasty warrior’s gameplay is good for the story but it gets boring after a while. The Vs. mode on storm 3 gives it more of a reason to keep playing. Still a great game though.

  • nick

    how do you get the theme? i downloaded the demo

  • nick

    how do you get the theme?

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    you a fan of the game i suppose? would you be interested in having it dubbed?

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    sorry, 26 so far confirmed. are you interested in having it dubbed?

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    are you a fan of the dub? if so we have a chance at it!

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    are you a fan of the dub? if so we have a chance of getting it dubbed!

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    it seems so for us fans eh? are you a fan of the dub? because if so we have a chance of getting it dubbed!

  • nick

    i downloaded the demo, but how do you get the theme?

  • narutolover2004

    cant wait for the best game in all of history to come out!!!!!!!! wait storm 3 already came out

  • PB360

    yes you were and still are.

  • just_booty

    No there is no chance as they have stated that they are only releasing the sub version and personally I can’t stand the dub all the voices are too old to suit the characters. Examples are likeZoro sounds like a 40 year old man (same voice actor as Alex Armstrong from FMAB) and Usopp has the same voice actor as krillin from dbz.

  • Tonizerna

    you go to ps3 setting and themes there is Op theme

  • Tonizerna

    no

  • nick

    thanks i got it!

  • Shogunreaper

    Anyone know if you can increase the time you can awaken into that haki mode or what ever its called?

  • http://www.facebook.com/ynotenshi Yami No Tenshi

    He will ;)

  • Shinobuden

    I live in Europe so I guess I’m a Europe fan(?). And no actually, I prefer japanese voices with subtitles over dubbed any day. I love all the characters voices in japanese, whereas the only one I think is remotely good in the dub is Zoro’s, that’s it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/aaron.n.marsala Aaron MartyMailbox Marsala

    So, there’s gonna be a versus mode right?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003901522824 Jaber Almarzouqi

    You came to the wrong neighborhood ..this is gonna hurt!….*BAM* lol

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    well even if you aren’t, the dub fans could use a little bit of help.

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    probably, since most enemies from the last game became playable now it wouldn’t surprise me.

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    I see. Well i respect your opinion for the japanese dub. but the english dub fan could use an extra fan.

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    well despite your opinions (and the immense popularity of the dub) we actually have a chance of having it in english. I spoke with a namco representative and he said only id the game is specifically requested it can be dubbed. So fans created a petition against namco subbing the game. Its going very well.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ynotenshi Yami No Tenshi

    He is also in the final roster announced by a 200% reliable source ;)

  • Shinobuden

    Is it a petition or something? If so I don’t mind helping out, so long as they add the option to choose whether you want japanese or english audio (like they did with Bleach Resurreccion) I’m cool with it.

  • lightdarkgamer

    yeahh .. for me its perfect bub jp and sub eng .like pirate warriors 1 …. just like the anime ee !! xP

  • lightdarkgamer

    yeahh dude for me too !!!

  • brian gnanaskandan

    I’m sure there is, considering that they were only willing to release this game as digital in North America and Japan receives a disc copy. If there is an option to keep both I wouldn’t mind, but I want the original japanese dub in it at least.

  • Drewtitan22

    Yea I don’t mind it, I got the import last time but I couldn’t read everything on it so I might wait this time.

  • EighteenSky

    I highly doubt you’re speaking the truth, OP is not big enough in NA to warrant the extra cost of dubbing, it’s only going to cut into their profit margins so why would they do it?

  • scabab

    Jesus man STFU already, how many times you gotta say the same thing, nobody cares.

  • Italorr

    Sub over Dub

  • Italorr

    Bro, let the option be Subbed And Dubbed, not only one version. To be honest I think the English Dubbed sounds like crap, Luffy sounds like a little kid and most of the voices are way off.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ace.johnson.315 Ace Johnson

    I felt the same way until I noticed that R2 lets u set up an independent Trick Room that will sit there for an extended amount of time. You could walk away from it and any sword moves u do also cut anybody inside the trick room. It can also be used for teleportation if u use the bioshock combo

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    im not a dude D: but the game is still awsome ;D

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    Of course you can :
    One Piece = Masterpiece
    NSUNS3 = **********
    Of course NSUNS3 is in my eyes a good game too but it will never reach the same level of epicness as One Piece :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    I think that the older enemies will all be playable too :
    Like Blackbeard or Magellan.

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    neither D:

  • http://www.facebook.com/ynotenshi Yami No Tenshi

    Blackbeard will, but not Magellan…

  • http://www.facebook.com/karlo.pasaricek Karlo Pasariček

    i hope Monet,Bonney,DD,Kidd can be played

    why is Nami in the intro being overpower by a marine while she was able to block an attack from a fishman… Brook is so funny in the intro :D

    they are 36 characters that can be played XD

  • benny

    shanks and roger will be in future games, they need to be in the anime fighting to be in the game thats why law and the admirals are in this one i guess

  • lightdarkgamer

    oppss sry madame :P .. yeahh agreee ;D

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    yeah :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    haha np xD

  • narutonatsu

    ur name and that picture, is like reina from rave master. lol did u try to do that or it was just a coincidence (how erza and reina look alike)

  • Shinobuden

    I like the way you think.

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    äh no xD Rena is my real name and the pic …just look awesome :P
    but in my opinion reina and erza doesnt look really similar…but Bisca Connel is based on Reina .

  • http://www.facebook.com/renari.savi Rena Blubbibläschen

    Yeah me too xD

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    NOOOO

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    you’re right

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    I want Gol.D.Roger, Golden Lion Shiki to be playable… even them can’t save this shitty game

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    Don’t make me laugh moron

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    NSUNS3 is better than this dynasty warriors shi…

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    You’re right;) because this shi… is just like the first one

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    i don’t think so

  • http://twitter.com/uchiha_damian20 Damian Uchiha

    I played a demo, and all i have to say is. i won’t buy this SHI.

  • PB360

    Then goodbye.

  • Troll Nina

    IF IT HAS PUNK HAZARD I JUST HOPE CEASER CLOWN COULD BE (AT LEAST) A BOSS BATTLE OR EVEN BETTER A PLAYABLE CHARACTER I HOPE!

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    i’m simply spreading the word on behalf of others. a lot care actually so mind your own business.

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    well do you want to help out some dubbed fans? the game would have an option for dub or sub anyway of this pulls through. namco told me in a conversation that if the game was specifically requested enough for english audio it would happen.

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    i’d agree,

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    i see. well namco told me in an interview that if the game was specifically requested enough that they would dub it. so either way if i was dubbed there would be an option for english sub.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bılly-Bauer/755684600 Bılly Bauer

    dude this is a hack and slash game. Ninja Storm 3 is a fighting game and has hack and slash action, vs mode and other modes. NS3 offers more than this one to gamers. But this game is cool too

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    I can honestly assure you i’m speaking the truth. OP is very popular in the US and Europe, as well as new Zealand. A lot of fans enjoy the funimation db, its make a lot of money.

  • Shinobuden

    Well, I’m not really surprised. You’re a horrible troll who has nothing good to say about this game.

  • http://twitter.com/AsuraDrago Asura Drago

    I put audio options in the petition the yesterday.
