PlayStation Japan has revealed One Piece: Kaizoku Musou (One Piece: Pirate Warriors in English) will be for one to two players! The type of multiplayer, however, has not yet been revealed. There has been a scan that shows a partner strike system in which Zoro takes the place of Luffy in combat. A tag team scenario, if you will.
In the Jump Festa Trailer, about 1:06 in, we see Luffy on-screen with Zoro and Nami. That’s 3 characters on screen at the same time so we wonder if two human players can play together with a computer teammate or if Nami is even playable. We’ve only seen Luffy, Zoro, Sanji, and Usopp as playable characters, but again, PlayStation Japan has said the game is for one to two players, so at the moment we’re not sure how multiplayer will work.
Additionally, PlayStation Network (PSN) support has been confirmed. There aren’t any details on how PSN will be utilized, but let’s all hope it’s not like Bleach: Soul Ignition, where PSN support meant players could download three free episodes.
Lastly, below are three recently released screenshots. They have actually been seen in some of the past scans, but we offer them to you again for your enjoyment!
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. The game is in development by Omega Force and and will be published by Namco Bandai Games and Tecmo Koei in Japan on March 1, 2012. A European release is rumored, but no plans have been revealed for North America.
