    If I buy Romance Dawn, can we get this one too?

    • If Romance Dawn gets a lot of sales, Namco Bandai would definitely have to consider it. But since Romance Dawn’s getting localised in both Europe and North America, chances are this will too.

      • Anthony Hadow

        you both should contact nintendo and namco bandia let them know you want these games

        • British_Otaku

          It isn’t Nintendo’s job to bring over anime licensed games (except that one time when they handled the distribution of some One Piece games in Europe >_>), Namco Bandai will act if it realises that One Piece is a huge license in all regions.

          How many people wanted Romance Dawn in America? 13 people? And the petition has been out for four months?

          Yet Namco Bandai changed their mind from this:

          To a retail and digital release in just over two months…

          I can name dozens of games which had more aggressive pushes from fans for localisation like E.X. Troopers, Valkyria Chronicles 3, Yakuza anything, Mother 3 and such which weren’t so lucky.

          This is happening because Namco Bandai know they have a market and Unlimited World RED will happen as well, perhaps we will have a third age of Namco Bandai spamming the worldwide market with meh anime games (the first and second being Dragon Ball and Naruto imo).

          • Anthony Hadow

            No your right Nintendo is not in charge of distributing the game. However, Nintendo does own the system it is made for. That being the case if Nintendo feels this game will merit enough profit and has heard enough from its fans it wants this game the could reach out to Namco Bandia and ask for this to be made in the west. That being the case I would say contacting both and showing your support is the best thing to do as well as purchase similar one oiece games to get their attention

          • Anthony Hadow

            Regardless i would like to see unlimited cruise sp here in the west not the split europe version but the japanese one

  • British_Otaku

    Bosses look fun (nice touch with the buster call in the back of Lucci and generic enemies (where is Chessmarimo?) backing up Wapol) and the remaining characters not in the demo seem to be great as well.

    Still hoping for Base Lucci to make the cut and some of the bosses to be playable even if they have to be nerfed.

  • Anthony Hadow

    I am really curious as to whats on the back of the red 3DS LL for this game

  • fairysun

    Looks like a fun game for co-op.

    This needs to happen !!

    • British_Otaku

      That did happen in Unlimited Cruise I believe.
      With teams being too small (3 people if it is just with bots, 4 people in multiplayer) and Robin’s decline years ago we probably won’t see that in this game, at least aside from cutscenes.

      • Anthony Hadow

        No it didn’t happen it was a cut scene where they attempted and the same gag where completing it was refused

        • British_Otaku

          That’s right even in a game where it has everyone available at once, it was at the very best a skit nodding to the anime/manga. >_>

          Perhaps, it will be the equivalent of King Kai (the first game he was playable in released in 2011 and it wasn’t localised) or Mighty Mask from Dragon Ball. I’m not going to hold my breath for something that unlikely. >_>

          Oh and since you seem to really want to see the limited edition systems, just search for unboxings on Youtube in 24 hours or so, we could have a dozen of them by then.

          • Anthony Hadow

            been searching nothing comes up just trailers for the game and the closest i came was unboxing of the charazard 3ds

          • British_Otaku

            Wait another 24 hours, the game and system just released in Japan, even if I know there will be importers or English speakers in Japan especially for high profile releases like this, they might take their time with uploading the video in question.

          • Anthony Hadow

            Well unfortunately I may get the console tomorrow anyways which is why I was hoping to see it today

  • Lifestreamer

    Classic Nami, robbing people lying on the floor, and Franky and Brook seems really fun to play too.

    But man, Rob Lucci is just awesome here! I’m really hyped to fight him, but Wapol!? Cap’n Kuro, Krieg or Arlong are so much better, I still can’t understand Wapol over these three.

    • British_Otaku

      I get the feeling that Arlong has a decent shot given how he is one of the most engaging villains/characters in the series, even if he was at the beginning just another East Blue villain. Krieg and Kuro who haven’t resurfaced at all? Not so much, it is quite easy to see how Wapol who has done quite a bit in the manga since, had a movie boasting him as the antagonist (even if it looks terrible) and had a bit more weight behind him as far as politics went…

      Not that it justifies anything when Unlimited Cruise had all of them together. >_>

      • Lifestreamer

        Nah man it does not justify, I loved the hell out of “Drum arc”, all the “heal a country” issues and Dr. Hiluluk tragedy had me bawling the entire time, but Wapol was a weak character, hell, I like Foxy way more, even though the setting he was inserted was really interesting, way better than the Syrup island arc for sure.

        Kuro on the other hand was really interesting, all the notion of “die as a pirate/outlaw and being reborn in the aristocracy” is a great concept in any form of literature, and up to this day he has the most awesome weapon in One Piece, IMO.

        Krieg in concept was a nice opposition to what Luffy represents in his simplicity, both power hungry, Krieg being crazy prepared, and Luffy having the “hearts lance”, as said by Zeff, and don’t get me started with Arlong, without him, Fishman Island would not exist.

        To sum it all, f*ck Wapol.

        • British_Otaku

          Fair enough, I’m more fond of Kuro and Krieg than Wapol for similar reasons, I was just brainstorming whether there was a good reason for them to pick one over another unsuccessfully. >_> I would take Arlong over Wapol any day of course too.

          Much of my interest in Wapol and Foxy comes from their brilliant voice performance from Bin Shimada, not so much how they impacted on the world of One Piece or how interesting their plans and motivations are.

          On weapons in One Piece, I hope to see one of those three great weapons, especially Pluton and Uranus put to use in the series or a video game sometime soon. >_>

  • TheGameTagerZ

    Getting the game tomorrow morning going to record some footage of the game.

    • British_Otaku

      I would watch it, but I don’t want to spoil my experience when my slow ass SAL delivery finally makes it to me. >_> So I wish you the best in your video making and will probably push other people towards your stuff.

      Try not to spoil everything, though it is going to be forums and news sites’ fault for spamming stuff. >_>

      • TheGameTagerZ

        Ouch SAL…..good luck lol! Going to cover (or try) to cover every corner of that game.

        • Anthony Hadow

          If you are getting the bundle i would like to see it unboxed. Am really curious about the backside of the red 3ds

          • TheGameTagerZ

            Only getting the game. Wasn’t going to buy an extra 3ds lol as nice as it looks.

          • Anthony Hadow

            where can I watch your game footage?

          • TheGameTagerZ

            Youtube: ShonenGameZ

            I’ll be recording as soon as I get the game. Should be in 30 minutes from now.

          • Anthony Hadow

            cool will probably watch unless i get the game myself then ill be too preoccupied

          • TheGameTagerZ

            Package got delayed for some reason. Probably wont be till later today till I get it. Worst case tomorrow (really hope I don’t have to wait another day for this)

          • Anthony Hadow

            hats unfortunate theres still hope mines may come today its only 8AM

          • Anthony Hadow

            Mines came today nothing was on the back side but the game is here I figured out how to redeem my extra dlc

  • InfernoCommander

    this game looks like a lot of fun, but it also looks so slow.. I get it’s because it’s on 3ds but still. It’s hard coming from pirate warriors to this(if it comes out in NA)
