Would have liked it to expand to the Wii U platform, but I guess being on two region free systems of two different generations, one portable and one console is a great deal.

Hope this one doesn't gloss over a lot of cameos and content.
If there is a story mode, get the fundamental arcs done and the big ones as well like Thriller Bark and Skypeia.

I'm surprised they waited till the worldwide audience got a bite out of it to be honest.

The game sold 655,774 copies in the first week (Japan alone) and has an abundance of DLC (costumes and extra stages) left out so they can profit off consumers post-release. It wouldn't be odd for this series to become yearly or just pace itself till new exciting material is animated, perhaps why they minimised the content from Part 2 unlike Gigant Battle.

I'd imagine its just because its a PS3 title that also has Cross-play.

3DS is too weak to even hope to handle this game, and provides tools to developers to port PS3 games to Vita.

Even though I loved One Piece Pirate Warriors I really wasn't looking forward to a sequel or expected it. I thought this was a one time game even if the sales were good.

I actually wanted Bandai to make another kind of OP game for the PS3. A good example would be a fighting game like Naruto Ninja Storm or an action game like Naruto Uzumaki Chronicles, just anything on consoles.

You'll be waiting a while since the reason theres no digital release is because theres no dub... Sony of America policy. I doubt with they'll add a dub in the new one either since its way further than the anime dub is so it mainly is being made for the people who keep up with the anime as it airs in Japan. Half the anime would be spoiled for dub people.

My guess is that Omega Force will keep making the Pirate Warriors games for the PS3 and Vita, while Ganbarion develops the Grand Battle/Unlimited Cruise games for the Wii U and 3DS. I didn't really like Pirate Warriors too much, so I'm hoping Ganbarion really delivers on a fun One Piece game for the Wii U (and the PS3 as well) that's more akin to the Grand Battle games. Combat Rush (or the 4th Grand Battle game) was really a lot of fun. Still one of the best OP games to date.

Yeah you're probably right that it will never get a dub (which is fine by me), but I don't download digital games. So unless they release a physical, Ill just never get it [or maybe ill import the UK release, we'll see]

I wonder how much they're going to put in about the New World. They just got there and aren't even finished with their first stop (Punk Hazard). I hope they don't cram in a bunch of the arcs from the filler episodes just to make the game longer.

If you're an anime fan and like anime based games you kinda need a handheld system, a wii or a ps3 Sad

(xbox is all about shooters)
