The magazine also teases that Carrot will be able to turn into her Sulong form in the game.
The game franchise's Twitter account had also revealed last month that the game will feature four members of Germa 66 (the four Vinsmoke siblings) as playable characters. Other playable characters revealed via promotional videos include Luffy, Sanji, and Jimbei.
Bandai Namco Entertainment will reveal more information about the game on September 11, just before the start of Tokyo Game Show on September 12.
One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 will include stories, characters, and environments from some of the latest arcs in the One Piece anime, including the "Whole Cake Island" arc. The game will launch in 2020.
