One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 Brings Players To The New World This Summer

By Spencer . April 11, 2013 . 9:03am

The Straw Hat crew are coming back to PlayStation 3 with One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2. Namco Bandai will release the game in North America and Europe this summer. Like One Piece: Pirate Warriors before it, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 will retain the original Japanese voice actors.

 

Omega Force added the New World, Thriller Bark, and Skypiea arcs to play through and Haki abilities into the game. One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 also has Pirate’s Log mode with an original story where Luffy fights with the Marines.

    I wonder if the next OP game will also have original stories. Waaay too soon to be thinking of adding anything from the Dressrosa Arc in.

    • fenix7

      it does.. did u watch the video?

      • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

        Um… did you watch the video?

        That had nothing to do with any part of the Dressrosa Arc, where the manga currently is now, let alone anything past the Punk Hazard Arc, which the anime is not even 1/3rd of the way through yet.

        And the fact that the game is cherry picking parts from the Punk Hazard Arc means all they can do right now is use an original story. My original question was specifically wondering if they would keep making original storylines until they have sufficient content to do another game that actually follows the manga/anime’s official storyline.

          He meant that Pirate Warrior’s 2 does have an original story, not that it has anything from the Dressrosa Arc. I think the confusion came from him thinking you were implying that 2 doesn’t have an original story. I know you had a “next” in there but keep in mind for North Americans 2 is still kind of the next game.

          • Hinataharem

            He said “also”. As in, this game has an original story

    I’m looking forward to this. Pirate Warriors is a pretty cool game, and I expect this to be even cooler.

    Also, Thriller Bark arc. Yesss.

  • http://fr.twitch.tv/Nhatalya Aleksandrina

    I liked the first game a lot, so I’m looking forward to the second one. :3 KOEI’s doing a good job with the One Piece Warriors games.

    I still need Vivi as a DLC character, or in OP: PW3, though. >_>

    • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

      Not only Vivi, but she must have a special attack that uses Carue and/or the Super Duck-billed Squad. If not, then don’t add her, imo…

      • http://fr.twitch.tv/Nhatalya Aleksandrina

        She’s still the most obvious female add at this point. I know she’s requested a lot among the Japanese fanbase, so it is only a matter of time before she’s added. I can easily wait until PW3, though.

        That, or DLC characters. Since they wanted to do this already in the first one. And Vivi’s Seiyuu asked personally to the producer that she’d like Vivi being playable too. By the way, she’s already in the game (both of them). She’s just a NPC, like many other characters.

  • Learii

    can we play of these chars in the story mode?

    • http://fr.twitch.tv/Nhatalya Aleksandrina

      Yes. Everyone is playable in the story. :)

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

        sorry, not everyone, CP9, arlong, wapol, magallen, moria, vista jozu, mr 3 are not playable. you know in english-released countries we have a chance at dubbing, or sub option if your prefer jap dub, are you interested in helping?

        • http://fr.twitch.tv/Nhatalya Aleksandrina

          Yes, but… that’s because they’re NPCs. :3 Both games have a lot of characters, but maaany of them are just NPCs. Though I expect all the characters you listed to be playable in a third game.

          Huh? Helping? For what exactly? l_l

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

            well after speaking with namco on why it wasen’t going to be dubbed, i was told if it was requested enough it can happen. so a friend suggested i make a petition. we need help spreading it out. its called:
            English Dub One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 for the Playstation 3 (audio options for sub fans)

  • DarthSithZero

    Y U NO Ps vita western release

  • LittleMofreaky

    R.I.P. English Language :(

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

      well not exactly! we have a chance at dubbing it! are you interested?

      • Warboss Aohd

        ……go on.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

          Well, you see i spoke with namco on the topic of why it wasn’t to be dubbed. i basically wrote an essay to them of why it shouldn’t. So in return I was told that if it was requested enough it can happen. So a friend made the suggestion that I make a petition. the petition is called: English Dub One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 for the Playstation 3 (audio options for sub fans)

          But we are having trouble getting the word out.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            I think your point is pretty well made. Please do note that online petitions are far from the best way to make a voice heard. Active boards in places the industry does watch where many folks share a wide range of responses and thoughts do more.

            Don’t share the same words everywhere, let each speak for themselves.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

            well, i appreciate the advice. but finding the right place to spread the word aside youtube, facebook, one piece wiki are what i’m working on. its a tad difficult to find the right sources.

          • Warboss Aohd

            i would Start by going to Operation Rainfall’s site to get their attention, and as M’lau M’Laut said, go to forums. Gamefaqs, the arcade section of The Spoony Experiment’s forums, you gotta think outside the box a bit.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

            believe me i’ve been trying the last few weeks. i’ve gone to several different websites.

          • Warboss Aohd

            keep spreading the word, this isn’t something that sounds like it’d be easy.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

            i’ve been doing so, would you care to help? all help is appreciated. wheres the best place to contact one piece fans?

            http://www.change.org/petitions/english-dub-one-piece-pirate-warriors-2-for-the-playstation-3-audio-options-for-sub-fans

          • Warboss Aohd

            One Piece Facebook Page, twitter, Koei’s Facebook Page, Anime Section on certain forums (like Spoony Experiment), so many places.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

            i’ve been to those

          • Warboss Aohd

            well try to get in touch with certain anime fans, ones who are well known….Bennet the Sage Perhaps, ones who could spread the word. Honestly just try and get the aid of well known people from the internet who could spread the word (Spoony, Linkara, ChuggaaConroy, anyone well known.)

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

            hm, i’ve never heard of any of these people. well i actually got a reply from this one guy on youtube who has uploaded several comical moments from one piece and has several thousand subs and a few different accounts, and he agreed to spread out the petition.

          • Warboss Aohd

            thats a good start

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

            now 77 signatures and rising.

          • Warboss Aohd

            excellent, i’d also go around forums asking how toi increase that.

          • Warboss Aohd

            well if you wanna do that (shall can the ork speak for this), you will have to go to various forums, get the attention of certain individuals (Operation Rainfall, One Piece and Koei fans in general, etc), get the word out, link said petition, etc. hell if you can prove this, maybe ask Siliconera and Gematsu for assistance.

            Edit: There are a number of Youtubers who could assist with this, like AlphaOmegaSin seems like a guy who would be interested (him also having 80k subscribers to call upon helps)

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

            Curious, what do you mean by “shall can the ork speak for this”? and how would i be able to contact those websites main admins? i appreciate the advice/reply

      • LittleMofreaky

        Call it a hunch, but I have a strong feeling that you don’t work for Funimation.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

          i don’t. i am a fan that stumbled upon a chance. Well you see, i spoke with namco on the topic of why it wasn’t to be dubbed. i basically wrote an essay to them of why it shouldn’t. so in return i was told that if it was requested enough it can happen. A friend suggested i make a petition, so i did:
          English Dub One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 for the Playstation 3 (audio options for sub fans)

          But we are having trouble spreading the word out.

          • Space_Ghost

            Copy and paste much?

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/Bobobranden Asura Drago

            just sending a message.
