'Has Online Play And Whitebeard Joins The Roster' - And Possible US Release Coming Soon...



Between a new commerical trailer released and some mockup retail packaging, we can figure out more clues on what is planned in this new up-coming game for the PlayStation 3 platform

No official details from 'Namco Bandai' on what the new 'One Piece: Pirate Warriors' will contain, but from the trailer you get to see characters; 'Portgas D. Ace', 'Boa Hancock' and eve Whitebeard.

Then a photo has appeared of the planned retail packaging and for it, we get to see the game will eat up 4.4gb of your valuable PS3 HDD space, and support 1 to 2 players online, but only have 720p graphics.

Maybe the online mode will be cooperative or versus, but without any official news source from the developers it is anybody's guess!
