Posted on November 6, 2017

Yorodemo, get ready as Bandai Namco Entertainment and developer Omega Force are bringing One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 to the Nintendo Switch. First announced last week, this port of the 2015 action/adventure game will contain over 40 different kinds of downloadable content, including the challenge episodes and costumes, in addition to the base game all in one package.

The Nintendo Switch version, to be released on December 21, 2017 in Japan, will be playable at 1080p with up to 60 FPS in TV mode and 720p/30 FPS in Tabletop and Handheld modes. In TV and Tabletop modes, users will be able to enjoy two-player co-op if they have two sets of (for a total of four individual) of Joy-Cons. One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 on the Nintendo Switch will not have online co-op.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 was originally released on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and on PC (via Steam) in North America and Europe in August 2015. The game shipped in Japan in March 2015 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita. Sales of the game exceed one million copies sold – 100,000 units in North America, 320,000 units in Europe, 380,000 units in Japan, and 200,000 units for the rest of Asia.

Earlier this year, One Piece: Unlimited World Red was released on the Nintendo Switch worldwide. Nothing has been announced in terms of a release of One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 outside of Japan at this point in time. As we learn more, we hope to let you know right here on Saiyan Island! Take a look at the first trailer for One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 on the Nintendo Switch.

  • dbz

    the story mode looks great

  • SM

    I just wished they would dub One Piece games like they do Dragon Ball and Naruto

  • Mad God Morgoth

    Me too, especially considering how popular OP is and how Funimation basically saved the series in America. Namco is weird when it comes to dubbing games.

  • lolcatz6657

    I always thought there wasn’t much of a demand for it lol.

  • The_Superior_Spider-Mon

    Bamco will port the PS3 or PS4 version of OP: Pirate Warriors 3 to the Switch.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    ………huh what happened i went to sleep

  • Mad God Morgoth

    Oh no, the dub of OP has been very well received and they keep releasing more DVDS so it’s selling well. It’s got an all-star cast and everything and fans love it.

    Namco is just weird when it comes to dubbing particular Japanese games.

  • Mad God Morgoth

    It’s fun, but it’s Dressrosa adaptation is a filler ending since the manga had yet to finish the arc during its production.

  • lolcatz6657

    Is that similar to why the SAO games are not english dubbed? I forget who is in charge of that game. Or was the english dub not as well received?

    Looks and even seems to run like the PS3 version. There wasn’t much difference between PS3 and PS4 other than lighting, so this is definitely a disappointment. Even the textures looked bad. Fire Emblem Warriors at least looks better than the majority of what they showed. If they weren’t going to do a solid job, I wonder why they even bothered porting everything in their catalog. It should at least match the visual quality of the PS4 version fairly closely at the framerate it seems to be running at. I wanted to buy AoT on Switch, but now I’m worried.

  • Ryouma Ryuunosuke

    and PC side it call broken game

  • Ryouma Ryuunosuke

    and still didnt get update


  • Leo LeiGto

    Lol. That’s all I have for Bamco. Lazy AF.

  • Mad God Morgoth

    It doesn’t matter how well the English release is received, the game company and the dub companies operate differently and can make their own decisions.

    SAO is very popular and the Aniplex release has been successful, however whoever is in charge of the English localization of the game is the one who makes the decision. But it’s just strange how they will dub obscure little known Japanese games but something like One Piece that’s the most popular manga series in the world is just subbed?
