PS3/Vita/Wii U versions arrive in Japan on June 12 with new mode, characters, quests

Namco Bandai Games began streaming the second multi-platform promotional video for its upcoming One Piece: Unlimited World Red game release on Monday. The four-minute video proclaims that the new version for PlayStation 3, PS Vita, and Wii U platforms will add a new mode, new characters, and new quests in high-definition.

In particular, the game will have a new "One Piece Battle Colosseum" mode (Coliseum Mode in English) which "will closely resemble the latest episodes of One Piece and bring heart-pounding action and glory to the ring as pirates fight relentlessly to earn top rankings." The mode will have a total of 20 playable characters, including Trafalgar Law, Hancock, Buggy, Crocodile, Jinbe, Portegas D. Ace, Akainu, Edward Newgate, Shanks, Donquixote Doflamingo, and Fujitora.

The new multi-platform version is arriving to Japan on June 12. It also features the opening theme song "Hashire!" and introduces the game's environments like Trans Town, battles, mini-games such as fishing and bug-catching, villains, and more.

The game allows for up to four players to play together, and players can explore the world of One Piece with their friends. Players can embark on different quests and battle enemies with many of the manga and anime's familiar characters. The game also allows players to fish, catch bugs, hunt for treasure, and more to develop and train their characters. The game features the original character Red (voiced by Masachika Ichimura), the game's nemesis who aims to be the Pirate King. Standing in his way are the Straw Hat Pirates and a new raccoon character named Pat (TARAKO).

Ganbarion developed the "multi action-adventure" title. The game features original characters designed by series' creator Eiichiro Oda, such as Red, Pat, and Yadoya (Rumi Hiiragi).

The game already shipped for Nintendo 3DS in Japan last November, and it inspired two Nintendo 3DS XL color variants in Japan: Luffy Red and Chopper Pink. The first copies of the game include the download codes for a limited adventure costume of Luffy from One Piece Film Strong World, as well as an additional Marineford quest with Ace as a playable character.

The game will be released in North America on July 8. The PS3 and 3DS versions will be available in physical retail packages, while the Wii U version will be digital-only.
