Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe announced on Thursday that the One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 game will ship in Europe, the Middle East, and Australasia on August 28. The game will be released in North America on August 25.
Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe began streaming a trailer to accompany the announcement.
Bandai Namco Entertainment will release the game for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and on PC (via Steam).
Those who pre-order the game in Europe will get four DLC items for free: two missions, a Luffy as a giant fish costume, and a Sabo dressed as Lucy costume. Europe will also get a "Doflamingo Edition," which includes a 16-centimeter (about 6.3-inch) Doflamingo figure. The Doflamingo Edition is only available for the PS4 and PS3 versions of the game.
The preorder bonuses will be available in North America exclusively to customers who preorder the PS4 edition at Game Stop. The special edition has not been confirmed for release in North America.
The game shipped in Japan on March 26 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita. First copies of the game included 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 follows Luffy's journey from the beginning through the Dressrosa Arc. Omega Force again developed the game, which allows 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.
