Japanese publisher Shueisha has recently announced that Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga now has over 300 million copies in print! This is the first manga in company history to do so, with the second most successful being Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball with 152 million copies printed.

To celebrate this accomplishment, Shueisha has revealed One Piece’s Tony Tony Chopper will be making an appearance in CAPCOM’s popular Monster Hunter 4 video game for the Nintendo 3DS.

Chopper will serve as a support character, cheering on players during their hunts. He will come equipped with a wooden branch as a weapon, and an “Excited Chopper” armor.

Monster Hunter 4 is a four player action RPG, with designs by Fairy Tail’s manga creator Hiro Mashima. The game was released September 13 of this year.
