One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 unveils in a New Gameplay !
Always popular in Japan, much less in the West, games like Musô continue to emulate and small clones, as evidenced by the arrival of One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 officialized during the Japan Expo 2019 by a Bandai Namco Entertainment happy to share the first images of the game.
Launched in 2012 on PS3, the franchise is as its name indicates a meeting between the drawn universe of Eiichiro Oda and the warrior world of Dynasty Warriors ; Through various modes ranging from the campaign to the skirmish, players take control of the crew of the Straw Hat on vast muso-like battlefields. Each episode brings a lot of mechanics and new modes, in addition to expanding the list of playable characters
Hervé Hoerdt, senior vice president of marketing, digital and content at Bandai Namco Europe, says :
Thanks to the first teaser trailer and screenshots released here and there, we can see that this suite will extend to the Whole Cake Island arc as we can see the presence of Big Mom, also known as Charlotte Linlin. Of course, Luffy will be there to try to stop him, with his Gear Fourth transformation that will allow him to put powerful mandates on the grounds.
For the moment, we do not know much about the gameplay, but we imagine that it will be quite close to the previous episodes, with novelties that we hope many.
We'll have to wait until 2020 before finding the crew of the Straw Hat to decimate hordes of enemies on vast battlefields like Musō.
Always developed by Omega Force, this new One Piece game will be available on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
Japanese publisher Bandai Namco said in a recent statement that visitors to Gamescom 2019 will be able to try the new Omega Force muso on various kiosks in Hall 6 (locations A40 / B40) at Koelnmesse, Cologne.
To stay on One Piece, the publisher also took the opportunity to specify the date of release of the first DLC World Seeker, putting the owners of the game in the boots of Zoro: Friday, July 12.
