One Piece Unlimited Cruise SP 3DS Game Delayed After Quake

Nintendo 3DS game features Whitebeard character with tremor-inducing powers

Bandai Namco Games announced on Wednesday that "in light of various circumstances," it is delaying the release of its One Piece Unlimited Cruise SP game for the Nintendo 3DS system from April 7 to a date to be determined. Bandai Namco prefaced its announcement with a note of condolence to the victims of the March 11 earthquake (Tōhoku Chihō Taiheiyō-oki Jishin) and tsunami.

The action game adapts Eiichiro Oda's original One Piece pirate manga and subsequent anime. Unlike the previous One Piece Unlimited Cruise games for the Nintendo Wii console, One Piece Unlimited Cruise SP offers the character Edward "Whitebeard" ("Shirohige") Newgate as a playable character. After eating the Gura Gura no Mi fruit and gaining special powers, Whitebeard can cause tremors or even tsunami waves.
