One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 will feature more playable characters than ever, including some that appeared in previous games but were never playable. Bandai Namco’s latest batch of videos show more from Sabo, Ace, and Chopper in action.
In One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3, Sabo fights using his trademark pipe weapon, along with fire-based abilities he got from the Mera-Mera no Mi, which was formerly owned by Ace. He also has some of his own special attacks thrown into the mix.
While Ace is no longer around in the world of One Piece, he’s back in Pirate Warriors 3, and can put up quite the brawl with his fire attacks. He might not use a weapon like Sabo, but makes up for it with his fists and further experience with fire.
Tony Tony Chopper, the doctor of the Straw Hat Pirates, might be a little guy, but he can transform into various forms with different offensive capabilities, so he’s more than just the Straw Hat Pirates’ little “pet raccoon”. He’s also shown temporarily transforming into his giant beast form to take down some foes.
Some of the recently introduced playable characters of One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 include Cp9’s strongest member Rob Lucci, along with the “Okama King” Emporio Ivankov and Magellan the poison-using vice warden of Impel Down.
One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 will release this summer for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and PC. The game launches earlier in Japan, on March 26, 2015. You can check out our earlier report to get a look at the special edition PlayStation 4 that Japan is getting for the title as well.
