One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 Adds Ivankov, Magellan as Playable Characters
This year's 12th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine will announce on Monday that Ivankov and Magellan will be playable characters in Bandai Namco Games' upcoming One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 action game. The magazine also reveals the game will have a "Dream Log" mode that unlocks characters and items during gameplay. The character Oars will also appear as a boss.
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.
