The Japanese software publisher Namco Bandai Games registered the game trademark "Pirate Warriors" with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on February 1. In December, the company filed the same trademark in the European Union.
Namco Bandai Games' One Piece Kaizoku Musou PlayStation 3 game will ship in Japan on March 1. "Kaizoku" means "pirates" in Japanese, and KOEI Tecmo's Musou action game franchise has traditionally been retitled with "Warriors" in English.
