One Piece: Burning Blood is out now in North America and Japan for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PlayStation Vita. It will be out on June 3rd in Europe. The game will also release on PC via Steam sometime in June.
One Piece: Burning Blood is being developed by Spike Chunsoft, who developed J-Stars Victory VS+. The game will feature high octane 1 on 1 battles with 2 supporting characters, similar to CyberConnect 2’s Naruto Shippuden Ninja Storm series, and will feature more in depth combat than Koei Tecmo’s One Piece: Pirate Warriors series. Unlike the Naruto games, players will be able to switch out with the supporting characters, making the battles 3v3. There will also be different types of character playstyles depending on their Devil Fruit abilities.
A brand new gameplay trailer has been released announcing new playable characters and gameplay mechanics.
Another trailer was also released, which focuses on the franchises’ events leading up to the game, and the story arcs that will be covered in One Piece: Burning Blood.
One Piece is a manga series created by Eiichiro Oda that started in 1997 in Shueisha Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine. To date, it has a total of 80 volumes and has taken the record for highest selling manga of all time, with over 345 million copies in circulation. The franchise is one of the world’s most well known series, with an anime adaptation that began in 1999, produced by Toei Animation (Dragon Ball Z, Toriko) that is still currently ongoing. In addition, many light novels, spin-off manga, merchandise and video games were produced based on the franchise.
Here is a synopsis of the anime from MAL:
Gol D. Roger was known as the Pirate King, the strongest and most infamous being to have sailed the Grand Line. The capture and death of Roger by the World Government brought a change throughout the world. His last words before his death revealed the location of the greatest treasure in the world, One Piece. It was this revelation that brought about the Grand Age of Pirates, men who dreamed of finding One Piece (which promises an unlimited amount of riches and fame), and quite possibly the most coveted of titles for the person who found it, the title of the Pirate King.
Enter Monkey D. Luffy, a 17-year-old boy that defies your standard definition of a pirate. Rather than the popular persona of a wicked, hardened, toothless pirate who ransacks villages for fun, Luffy’s reason for being a pirate is one of pure wonder; the thought of an exciting adventure and meeting new and intriguing people, along with finding One Piece, are his reasons of becoming a pirate. Following in the footsteps of his childhood hero, Luffy and his crew travel across the Grand Line, experiencing crazy adventures, unveiling dark mysteries and battling strong enemies, all in order to reach One Piece.
