Posted on February 21, 2012

nami One Piece: Pirate Warriors is officially hitting Japanese retailers next week on March 1st, 2012. The team over at the popular Japanese magazine Famitsu have already gotten, experienced, and reviewed the first One Piece PS3 game. The verdict? A 36/40! Famitsu generally has four reviewers who take the time to play the game and rate it out of 10. The compilation of their scores becomes the final Famitsu review score for the game. In other words, for One Piece: Pirate Warriors, all four reviewers have given it a 9 out of 10, leading the final score to be a 36 out of 40.

Is this a good score or bad score? We think it’s pretty good, percentage-wise 36/40 is a 90%. When comparing with the last five One Piece games released actually, which date back to 2007, Pirate Warriors has been given the highest rating of them all!
