One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 Game Adds Rob Lucci as Playable Character
posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's 10th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump will announce on Monday that the upcoming game One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 will add Rob Lucci as a playable character.
The advertisement also teases Blackbeard, Sir Crocodile, Daz Bones, Wiper, Enel, Jesus Burgess, Bellamy, and "Tin-Plate" Wapol. The ad notes they will "join the battle one after another," but does not confirm whether or not they will be playable.
The game will debut in the Americas for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC (via Steam) this summer.
The game will ship in Japan on March 26, but no Steam version has been announced for that country. First copies of the game will include an early unlock code to play as Sabo, a product code for Luffy's special costumes, and a serial code for a character in the smartphone game app One Piece Treasure Cruise.
The game will follow Luffy's journey from the beginning through the Dressrosa Arc. Omega Force is again developing the game, which will allow players to go through the One Piece story with improved graphics. Namco Bandai Games released the first One Piece Pirate Warriors in Japan on PlayStation 3 and later in Europe and America in 2012. The second game shipped in Japan for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita and in Europe and North America for PlayStation 3 in 2013.
