Bandai Namco is working hard with its line-up. After teasing trailers for two upcoming game Blue Protocol and One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows, it's time for Luffy and the Straw Pirates to set sail!

The publisher has announced the fourth installment of the series that takes the setting from the pirate world. And its name is One Piece: Pirate Warrior 4

Here's the reveal trailer of the game, and you can watch it for yourself:

What will be included in this game?

If you've known about the anime/manga of One Piece, you've probably heard about its ridiculously long story. With over 800 episodes already aired, we still haven't known for sure what's exactly that one piece (not to mention the legendary treasure is separated into a thousand of pieces!)

While we are very likely to have to wait until the 1000 episode to air, Bandai Namco has been making three video game adaptations of the series. And this time, Pirate Warriors 4 will be the mixture between One Piece and Dynasty Warriors.

Dynasty Warriors 9 is also a title from Omega Force

Revealed at Anime Expo, Pirate Warriors 4 is the work under the hand of the developer Omega Force. Coming after the 4-year-long of waiting, this game will cover some new contents from the anime.

To be more specific, it will include some new places from the anime. We don't know for sure what those exact locations are, but one of which will be the Whole Cake Island.

Luffy's Gear-4 form also make an appearance on this adaptation, so you can expect some arcs since that power appears in the anime to come in this game.

The mashup of Dynasty Warriors and One Piece

About the gameplay, Pirate Warriors 4 features a quite similar hack-n-slash style to the Dynasty Warriors series. Specifically, it will throw you into the battles with many minor enemies and some big bosses. You'll have clear advantages to the small one, as you can hit multiples of them with just your normal light and strong attacks. However, in harder modes, they will outnumber you by a ton, and you'll have to take some damage dealing with them.

After all, the ants' bites still hurt a lot!

And the special thing in the Dynasty Warrior - the Musou attacks - also makes its appearance in this game. Hitting the enemies multiple times, and you'll fill the Musou gauge. Unleashing it when it's full, and you'll perform a powerful attack that blows off every enemies in front of you. How cool is that!

To cut the long story short, with One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4, you will basically play Dynasty Warriors with One Piece's characters!

Release date and supported platform

The publisher leaves us with nothing more specific than the planned release window of "2020".
