    Not my favourite character but good to know that Eminem is not the only new playable character.
    Can’t wait for what other characters this game hopefully has.

      Eminem? you mean Enel lmao

      • Muffum

        Same thing, really. Oda has said he based Enel off Eminem.

    I think it’s cool that he’s in. I’m gonna have a blast using him. Although he’s not one of my favourite I think the thought of just wrecking s*** with Kuma is awesome. Also the Thriller bark stage was announced as well in the scan, not just Kuma. in one of the screenshots you can see thriller bark’s forest in the background :) I wonder if they’ll remake the Sabaody archipelago stage and then finally show off some Fishman Island and also a bit of Punk Hazard. I’m pretty sure the game will end *spoiler* just as Law makes his entrance *spoiler end* so that we’ll get to play as him. I want Law to be playable so bad!

    Hopefully we can play as more villains/rivals, like the Seven Shibukai, Marine Admirals, and other major arc villains.
    Edit: Wow, how could I forget to mention the Eleven Supernovas?! Man, I’m slippin’…

      the first pirate warriors had a small cast, there are lots of characters they could add to make this more memorable

    Playable Kuma.

    Playable. KUMA. EFF YES.

    Man I feel so alone being a huge fan of Bartholomew but dammit, I can’t help but like him, usually big-sized characters in most manga don’t get to be anything but dumb muscle. Having one be a mysterious benefactor that’s a double agent AND perhaps religious is such a nifty character hook that you’d usually reserve it for some generically handsome character. I just love the combination of looks and motivation Bart has.

    Awkward choice to have playable, why not have playable Traffy?
