People ready to sail with the Straw Hat Pirates have an exact date to work into their plans. Bandai Namco will release the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, and Xbox One game in Europe on June 3, 2016. This is particularly notable, as the Xbox One release will only be available in Europe and North America and marks the debut of the series on a Microsoft console.
To coincide with the release date announcement, Bandai Namco will offer additional forms of Monkey D. Luffys as pre-order incentives. In Europe, people who commit to a day-one copy of the game will get the Davy Back Fight arc’s Champion Luffy, Kung Fu Luffy from chapter 710 of the manga, and Luffy Gear 4th, a super-powered form that first appeared in chapter 784 of the manga and episode 726 of the anime. The Luffy Gear 4th could end up being the most useful of the three, since it allows the character to be in Gear 4th at all times. A metal game case will also come with pre-orders.
One Piece: Burning Blood will be released in Japan on April 21, 2016, but only for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. North America will get the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, and Windows PC versions of the game sometime in June 2016.
