    I really see no need in this right now since post time skip they are only in the second arc so the only purpose this would serve would be filling out the stuff the skipped pretime skip.

    • d19xx

      I need it…

    • Len

      And hopefully adding more stuff to do, Another Log needs improvements, Only having 1-2 missions available for some characters was a real letdown

    • Draparde

      probably filling in gaps, and adding more playable characters so for when they do have alot of post time skip stuff, they dont also have alot of pre-time skip characters to add lol

  • zferolie

    Ah sweet. I really enjoyed the last one. I am not surprised at all another one is coming

    However, I hope it doesn’t just take place in the new world. There aren’t enough places they visited in the new world yet to satisfy a whole game.

    I hope this covers what the first game had, and what it skipped, and where the anime/manga are right now. Maybe include the 2 Oda made movies as well.

  • Thuggin Love

    Nice,the roster in the first game was pretty weak.The first had like 14 playable characters and 30+npcs.

    • Wake

      Yeah. They should just go wild on usable characters in this one.

      • zferolie

        You mean go all out like the Unlimited adventure series did? That would be cool as heck.

  • zferolie

    Oh, I just spotted Enel in the corner of that scan. So it will be covering the pre-time skip, and cover things the last game didn’t. cool.

    • disqus_QsmFv5BwWs

      adventures of skypiea :D

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Only problem with taking place in the New World Arc is that Fishman Island is rather a boring arc (and such an uninspired place for the fight, a bland arena).

    However I hope we get to play as Traffy!

    • zferolie

      hmmm are people already shipping those 2?

      I would like to play as him, and the other 11 supernovas.

    • drexxia

      fishman island wasn’t even the new world in the beginning

  • Tales_of_Master

    Well that didn’t take long 0_0 Anyway, I’m pretty interested in the Vita version. I hope they cover more than the Fishman Island arc, since the arc that follows it is really good. Defiantly looking for more news on this.

    • zferolie

      That next arc isn’t finished yet, but I think it will be by the time this game comes out. At least in the Manga.

      I haven’t been following the anime recently. Are they doing a filler arc between the fishman and the next one? I would imagine they would due to how close the anime is to the manga

      • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

        Right now there’s a short filler due to the Z movie coming out next week. But by the end of the month/beginning of next year they should be in the Punk Hazard arc.

  • Raze

    Uhhh…
    But…There’s still only like…
    one and half arc in NW….
    Well…Whatever though…Still gonna take it…
    I hope Law is playable…

  • Tales_of_Master

    Looking at the cover again, I can see Aokiji in his post-time skip appearance. I wonder if that means we will get a stage based on the new movie One Piece Z. I still find it interesting that he’s featured on the box art.

    • Göran Isacson

      Oooh. Maybe this will also include the Z storyline, and perhaps even their fight against Gold Lion Shiki? I sure know I’d like to get in on that action (especially if we can play as Aokiji and his new hobo outfit).

  • eilegz

    milking the cow…. sigh i rather have gundam musou than this oh well its better on my backlog

  • Blesmi

    Still waiting on my Berserk Musou

    • neo_firenze

      Doesn’t that already exist? The PS2 Sammy/Yukes Berserk game is basically the same style. It’s not made by Koei and maybe doesn’t adhere EXACTLY to their Musou template, but it’s the same type of 3D hack-and-slash game. And it’s very good.

      Though yeah, I’d also be in for a Koei/Omega Force take on the Berserk universe. So I see your point :)

    • Spirit Macardi

      I’m waiting for Keroro Mosou, Toriko Musou, and Jojo’s Bizarre Musou.

  • YoshEE

    I hope co-op doesn’t lag like the first one.

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    So a sequel that will only cover the 2 places they’ve been to since the time-skip?

    They should wait another few months to a year so at least a third new arc in the manga can be a decent way in. Unless, this will end up covering the Skypiea and Thriller Bark arcs (or parts of them) that were missed before…

    • zferolie

      If you look, you can see Enel in the corner, so they seem to be also using pre-timeskip stuff that wasn’t in the last game

      • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

        I could never understand why they missed on using Enel the first time around. Not only did he have one of the best Logia fruit powers, but also had one of the best “WTFFFFFFFF!!!!” shocked faces around.

        • drexxia

          i can understand skipping trhiller bark because they’d have to make new models and new moves to some of the characters due to their transformations but why skypea is missing i don’t know :C

  • Hinataharem

    Yay I can play on the go!

  • StarWarudo

    I think I’ll be passing on this one. The first one was sorely disappointing to me.

  • LegendaryLos

    I can’t wait.

  • soulz

    I’m just hoping that all characters will be playable like the admirals, shichibukai, and all the other pirates.

    • drexxia

      someone used sanji glitch to make kizaru playable, and lokking at his moves i can assume that they were already planning to give control to other chars as well but decided to save it for the sequel, i hope

  • LuciferD666

    FINAALLYY!!!!! *excuse me*

  • doubletaco

    Even though Punk Hazard is really dragging on I’m worried about the lack of New World content.

    Unless they do movies and anime-only arcs, but I don’t really follow those.

    I’ll likely still get it since I liked Pirate Warriors 1. Especially if they expand the roster. Playable Smoker and Tashigi? Eh? Eeeh?

    • Draparde

      i hope they do, but they could always add these arcs:
      Romance dawn (zoro)
      Syrup Village (Usopp)
      Loguetown
      Reverse mountain?(i guess? lol)

      The missing parts of crocodiles arcs( unless they don’t wanna make croc’s part *that* long..)

      and thriller bark
      amazon lily

      they have quite abit they skipped i’ve found out lol. and of course there’s also movies they could do. and “what ifs” ect

      • doubletaco

        They did skip over quite a few arcs in the first game (Skypeia, Thriller Bark, Amazon Lily to name a few) but the supposed focus on “New World” content is where my concerns lie.

        Guess we’ll just have to see.

        • Draparde

          yeah, if there trying to focus on “new world” stuff then…well thats not gonna be much to focus on XD unless the game takes quite a while to come out lol

  • RedShadoww

    Hopefully theres an adventure mode this time…

  • harmonyworld

    will we have thiller bark and skypeia?

    • Draparde

      from what little i can see, we may have Skypeia. you can see the villain from that arc on the bottom right corner~

  • ragingmerifes

    Not trying to sound bashy, but why are they insisting on making fighting/action games out of One Piece? The best part of the manga is the adventure! As much as I disliked it, that Unlimited Cruise for GC was pretty much what I would like to see. But Romance Dawn is coming, so I don’t know…

  • Luke

    The game isnt going to cover very much unless they wait a while to release it

  • Luke

    The game isnt going to cover very much unless they wait a while to release it

  • MrJechgo

    As long as they add the missing arcs from the first game, I’ll be fine with it… oh, and English dub, for crying out loud!

  • sherimae1324

    so the first of the BIG 3 that comes to vita first is…. ONE PIECE ^_^

  • Aisha Lee

    If are making a second game to the first in this short amount of time. I’m kind of hoping that it is a update to the first game (especially if there is a chance that there with be a digital copy like the U.S one). Like a couple of people said, not to many thing to add when it comes to the story (so far the only thing they could add pre-timeskip that wasn’t in the first game Captain Sypeia, and Thiller Bark).

  • drexxia

    judging how often w-omegabamco spits out their sequels it was expected and i’d love to have it, but i don’t get it, manga is on the punk hazard island right now, and it’s not even over yet, that’s the first island in the New World, what content can the sequel of this game have? sure they can add “2years after – mermaid island” period but that would be like 2-3 levels.. i guess will be also seeing the 2 year training of each crew member as well

  • Edzo

    thank god for a vita version. i wish the first one was on vita id play it way more
