One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 has Dynasty Warriors vibes

Coming to PS3 summer 2013

Tecmo Koei’s One Piece manga/anime action game is coming to North American PS3s this summer. One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 has fan favorites Luffy, Sanji and Zoro joining new characters like Eneru for the first time to explore new territories like the previously unreleased Skypiea. You pick a guy and kick ass — my kind of game. 

With this collaboration between Namco Bandai and Tecmo Koei, expect Dynasty Warriors style control in a brawler starring the Straw Hat crew. Hell, if you squint your eyes watching the above trailer it’ll look like Dynasty Warriors in parts. So, the control scheme you know and love with less warlords with swords and more cell-shaded anime characters with stretchy limbs. Sounds like a good deal to me. 

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is set for release in North America in summer 2013.
