Also announced – those who purchase a first print copy of One Piece: Burning Blood will get a code to download playable character Gear Fourth Luffy! First print is a term used for copies of the initial batch of games Bandai Namco prints and they are usually obtainable by those who pre-order. From our understanding, in all versions of the game, Luffy will be able to transform to Gear Fourth in-game. The first run bonus will also allow players to use Gear Fourth as a standalone character from the start of a battle to the end of it.
Last, but not least, are new screenshots and art for the game.
