One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3, Living the Luffy life…

The One Piece: Pirate Warriors series might not have the biggest following here in South Africa, but the fascinating anime world, set in a wild pirate age, has captured the hearts and minds of those who played it. So when the third instalment of the series hits shelves in the middle part of this year, those that have enjoyed the previous games will have a massive adventure to undertake.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 will be making an appearance on PS4 and PC (via Steam) and will, as a result of larger capacities, be a much larger game. Centred on the series hero, Luffy, this third part will go right back to the beginning, allowing players to enjoy the full story, and not just this third chapter. It will introduce a massive character roster as the player takes to the seas and assembles the Straw Hat Crew, right from the original departure from Fuschia Village through to the new, exciting Dressrosa setting. In between, players will get to visit places like Marineford, Fishman Island and Punk Hazard, reliving older experiences and undergoing brand new ones.

As part of the Action Musou genre, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 will be the first collaboration in this series between giants Tecmo Koei and Namco Bandai. Both teams bring a ton of experience to the board, making the potential for this slightly niche title quite massive indeed.

While it might not be up everyone’s alley, One Piece: Pirate Warrior’s 3 promises to build on a popular franchise and capitalise on not only a rich setting, but the experience of two industry giants. There’s likely a lot to look forward to here.
