Compliments of Arc System Works
One Piece: Great Pirate Colosseum is set for a release in Japan on September 21 on 3DS, and this new development makes the news that there’s no planned localization even tougher.
Arc System Works has announced that Grand Pirate will be getting a cross-versus update along with Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden to allow for cross-game play in “early November.” Yep, you’ll be able to play both locally and online, and have Luffy and Goku (and crew) brawl it out just like they did in J-Stars Victory Vs.
It’s a sneaky way to add more value to Butoden 3DS that’s for sure, but it’s a gimmick I can get on board with. I just wish that I could play locally with my US copy of Butoden if I happened to import Grand Pirate on my Japanese 3DS. Maybe the western version of the former will get a “one-way street” update? Not likely, but I can dream.
