Marine admiral Akainu/Sakazuki, former admiral Aoikiji/Kuzan admiral and admiral Kizaru/Borsalino in their New World forms, and marine instructor Monkey D. Garp will join the playable character roster for Bandai Namco Games' One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2. This is the first playable appearance for both Garp and Akainu. The Thursday announcement in the April issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine also previews a story arc in which a dark Sanji and Robin appear, and the player is forced to fight them.
The sequel will be set in the New World arc of Eiichiro Oda's manga and Toei's anime adaptation with powered-up characters and action. It will also introduce a new original mode called “Pirate's Log”, new characters, and new stages, such as the Punk Hazard arc.
In Japan, the first copies of the game will include a download code for the battle uniform that Luffy wore in last year's One Piece Film Z, as well as the serial code for obtaining a limited in-game figure in Mobage's One Piece Grand Collection phone game. A limited Treasure Box edition will contain the game itself, an original skin sticker for the PlayStation 3 console, a pin badge display booklet to hold the pins that were bundled with the first game, a second set of 15 collection pin badges, and an original soundtrack CD.
