Namco Bandai Games Japan has, today, released the first batch of DLC (downloadable content) for One Piece: Pirate Warriors! Remember the scan on scenario downloads? Well. the first piece of DLC, as shown in the image below, is a scenario download – defeat 1,000 pirates. The price for this is 100 yen ($1.23 USD) and has a download size of a mere 240 KB. By the looks and size of the file, the DLC isn’t anything special like a Thriller Bark stage download. Rather, this scenario seems like a new mission (defeating 1,000 pirates) on a recycled stage (it looks like Orange Town to us).
The second piece of DLC shown in the image below is a Luffy samurai costume. This costs 350 yen ($4.32 USD) and has a total file size of 25 MB.
The third piece of DLC shown in the image below is just a combination pack of the scenario and costume for a price of 400 yen ($4.93 USD).
In our opinion, this first batch of DLC is extremely underwhelming. Namco Bandai will be releasing DLC every Thursday on the Japanese PlayStation Network, so lets hope next week brings something better!
One Piece PS3, One Piece: Pirate Warriors (or One Piece: Kaizoku Musou in Japanese), 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 was developed by Omega Force and published by Namco Bandai Games and Tecmo Koei in Japan on March 1, 2012. A European and North American release are possible based on trademark filings by Namco Bandai, but no official word has been released.
