After months of emptiness, we finally got a brand new One Piece Kaizoku Musou scan earlier today. That wasn’t all, however – there is an even newer scan! It shows off the Straw Hat Pirates and has a speech bubble next to Luffy that says “15”. Sum up the 9 Straw Hats and the fact that Luffy and the crew are holding up the number 6, well, that equals 15 as well! Coincidence or confirmation of the rumor? Hmm!
UPDATE: The 15 stands for One Piece’s 15th anniversary (15周年). The characters are holding 1 finger on one hand and 5 on the other to symbolize 15. It was in 1997 when One Piece made it’s first appearance in Shonen Jump. Thanks to everybody who commented on this.
One Piece PS3, One Piece: Kaizoku Musou, 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.
