A brand new character is joining Luffy and the Straw Hat crew for at least one of the two One Piece: Unlimited Cruise games. In episode one Gaburi, who looks Chopper’s Viva Pinata counterpart, is introduced as a newcomer in this trailer. He spits fireballs and appears to be integral to the plot. In one fight you have to protect Gaburi from Gecko Moria. The clip reveals other villains like Buggy the Clown will be in the game and you have Brook, a talking skeleton, as a new ally. Japan is on track to get One Piece: Unlimited Cruise Episode 1 on September 11. Episode 2 is coming in the winter. Neither game has a US release date at this time, but chances are good we’ll see both of them since Namco Bandai released One Piece: Unlimited Adventure earlier this year.
