The two volumes are titled One Piece DOORS. The first volume will ship on June 4, and the second volume will ship on July 4. The volumes will also include a "special page."
Shueisha will also release the 89th volume of the main manga on June 4. The official One Piece Twitter account posted a picture of the cover of the volume on Friday (pictured at right).
