One Piece Kaizoku Musou PS3 Game's Costumes Revealed
posted on by Egan Loo
This year's 13th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is revealing on Monday the costumes that will be available as downloadable content for the One Piece Kaizoku Musou action game. Starting on March 1 (the same day that the game itself launches), players can download a musha (samurai) version of the pirate captain Monkey D. Luffy for a fee. Then on March 8, a kimono version of the heroine Nami will become available.
Both costumes are based on the color opening-page illustrations that One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda himself drew for the original manga. More costumes for other characters are planned as well.
Bandai Namco Games and KOEI Tecmo Games' development studio Omega-Force are working on this "dream collaboration" that combines the pirate story of One Piece with KOEI Tecmo's Musou action game franchise.
The regular edition of the first One Piece PlayStation 3 game will ship on March 1 for 8,190 yen (about US$105). There is also a 12,390-yen (US$159) Treasure Box edition with a book of designs and visual art, 15 pin badges, and an original soundtrack CD. Still another edition will bundle a gold-colored PlayStation 3 console, with the One Piece lead character Luffy in white on the top, for 38,170 yen (US$489).
