Bandai Namco announced that One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 has reached one million copies shipped worldwide, when physical shipments and digital sales are combined. It also noted that this is the fastest entry to hit the milestone when compared to prior Pirate Warriors games. [Thanks, Gamer!]
Pirate Warriors 4 was released simultaneously worldwide on March 27, 2020, so it reached the milestone in less than nine months. Although Weekly Shonen Jump mentioned that the game had “sold” a total of one million copies, the Japanese official Twitter account for One Piece console games corrected it and said that it should have been “shipped” instead.
The latest game in the One Piece: Pirate Warriors series, from Bandai Namco and Koei Tecmo, revamped the action system to add more emphasis on aerial attacks. The Dramatic Log, which retells the story of One Piece, also changed to focus more on specific arcs, including the Whole Cake Island and Wano Country arcs that were not included in Pirate Warriors 3.
Bandai Namco also added a total of nine DLC characters to Pirate Warriors 4 after its release. They are grouped into three packs containing three characters each, although all of them can also be obtained at once with the Character Pass. The first two packs are immediately available. Whole Cake Island Pack added Charlotte Smoothie, Charlotte Cracker, and Vinsmoke Judge. The Worst Generation Pack featured X Drake, Killer, and Urouge. The third and final character pack included in the pass will be the Wano Country Pack that adds Kin’emon, Okiku, and Kozuki Oden on December 17, 2020.
One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 is immediately available on the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC.
