imageJump is out with more details about One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2. Namco Bandai and Omega Force included the Thriller Bark arc to add a touch of horror to the standard Warriors game.


Gekko Moriah is the boss in the Thriller Bark stage. Perona shows up in Thriller Bark too as a playable character and she can use her powers to make ghosts appear.


One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 comes out in North America and Europe this summer.

  • PLAYABLE PERONA~~~~~~~~!!!!!! *fangirl scream* >w<

    • M’iau M’iaut

      When did Jolteon take over this account?

      • Jolteon wouldn’t fangirl scream over a female character~

        • M’iau M’iaut

          Well played.

  • Manny Being Manny

    This is a must buy now that my One Piece Waifu is playable.

  • Pedro Tavares

    Wtf Perona?

  • So, I’ve been meaning to ask, is this game the same as the first one just with more added arcs or does it only cover the arcs that were not in the first game?

    • Manny Being Manny

      From what I know, its the same as any yearly anime game: It covers the same stuff, just does it differently enough to get people to want to play it again.

  • Perona

    Nice to see that I’m playable.

    • ragingmerifes

      Hi, Waifu.

      • Perona

        Don’t make me negative ghost you.

        • ragingmerifes

          I suck at life… I want to be a clam… no, even worse… I want to be eaten by Vashta Nerada… no, I want to work at FF Versus XIII development…

    • Norman Fong Ochoa

      Yep, Perona-chwaaaan!!
      Hug me like Kumashi!!

  • MrJechgo

    Alright, they got Skypeia and Thriller Bark, two arcs that were missing from the first game. Can we get Syrup Village now? I wanna beat Django, Siam, Butchie and Kuro.

    • InfernoCommander

      Beat Kuro? I wanna BE KURO!

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Hey, it’s “OMG/WTF/HOLY SHIT?!”-face #2!

    Wonder how she is going to play. Other than her Mini Hollows, she isn’t really a combat type.

    • Testsubject909

      Debuffer ranged keepaway type I’d imagine.

      I’d be very pleased if the enemies suddenly start spouting nonsense about wanting to crawl into a hole and die for the worthless beings that they are after getting KOed or attacked/debuffed by the ghosts.

      But that’s just theory here.

    hara hara hara (8)

  • Ooh Bee

    Great news since the game DEFINITELY needs more playable females but it needs Vivi now. There’s really no reason not to include her if you make Enel and Persona playable.

  • Serpenter Rex

    Scans if needed. It looks like Moria might be playable too?

    • Patrick Lucas Honeyman

      It says in that scan that Perona is a new playable character. Gekko Moria is a new boss. Time will tell if he becomes playable or not.

  • instant buy! the first one was actually great! first one piece game that was worth the money.

  • Testsubject909

    …Hmm… you know… I’m still wondering.

    Think maybe KoeiTecmo could be in charge of bringing over the Vita version of the game if NamcoBandai aren’t doing it?

    I know, it’s a stretch, but hey. Vain hope.

  • WC

    I wasn’t going to buy this, but now I don’t think I have a choice.

  • Göran Isacson

    … Playable Perona. I have to admit, I did NOT see that one coming, mostly because… well, who exactly was clamoring for Perona? I can see how her fighting style might make for fun gameplay, but I didn’t know she was THAT popular among the fans.

  • Nitraion

    Is there “What if” story that contain Zorro X perona ? XD
