Join a crew and conquer the entire sea with a new online mode not yet seen in the Japanese version of the game – Pirate Flag Battle! In this mode, players select a crew and capture famous locations online with a pirate team. A few of the crews that can be selected are the Straw Hats Pirates, Whitebeard Pirates, Red-Hair Pirates, Buggy Pirates, Blackbeard Pirates, and Baroque Works. Of course, that’s not a complete list, more will be revealed later.
The objective of Pirate Flag Battle is to claim territories. Players who select or affiliate themselves with a crew will battle players of other crews to earn Victory Points. These Victory Points will allow a crew to claim a territory. For example, the Blackbeard Pirates can battle their way to claim the Island of Weatheria under their rule. Pirate crews can claim victory at multiple territories. Each territory captured and protected will allow a team to earn something called Force PTs. After a certain period of time, referred to as a season in the trailer below, the crew with the highest amount of Force PTs will become known as a conqueror! Conqueror teams will receive a special title.
In related news, fans can download the English-sub One Piece Burning Blood demo for the PS4 and Xbox One. It is currently available on the European PlayStation Store and both American and European Xbox Stores. We did not see it on the American PlayStation store yet, but expect it will be there next Tuesday.
We at Anime Games Online haven’t had the chance to view the demo, but if we had to guess it is the same as the Japanese version of the demo, which has both single and 2-player modes with 4 playable characters – Luffy, Ace, Aoiji, and Franky.
