Namco Bandai has released a trailer for One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2, its upcoming action game fusing the hack-and-slash gameplay of its Dynasty Warriors franchise with the pirate-themed manga and anime One Piece.
The trailer shows off the combat abilities of the protagonist crew, from stretchy-limbed pirate captain Monkey D. Luffy to undead rocker Brooks, as well as those of the playable antagonists. The trailer promises battles against a hundred thousand opponents, though in true Dynasty Warriors fashion those enemies seem to mostly exist as cannon fodder.
One Piece is a popular weekly anime and manga series written by Eiichiro Oda, who published the first chapter in December of 1997 and the 700th chapter earlier this month. It follows a crew of pirates who have acquired mysterious powers from eating a Devil Fruit as they sail around the world in search of the mythical treasure One Piece and have adventures.
Pirate Warriors 2 is slated for release sometime this year for PS3 and PS Vita.
