One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 gets confirmed EU release

PS3 version only confirmed, Vita goes unmentioned

Namco Bandai has confirmed it will release One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 for PS3 in Europe in Summer 2012.


Pirate Warriors 2 is the sequel to the download-only title developed by Omega Force exclusively for PS3 via PSN. The game crosses One Piece's characters and settings with the hack-'em-up gameplay of Dynasty Warriors.

Players can expect new areas to battle through in the new game, including Skypiea.

Pirate Warriors 2 is also in development for Vita - as announced in Japan - but the portable version went unmentioned in Namco's EU announcement.

PlayStation Europe has halved the price of the original One Piece: Pirate Warriors as part of its ongoing Christmas discount promotion.

Thanks Siliconera.
