After two initial reveals back in July and September at Tokyo Game Show, One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 finally has an official release date. This announcement came out yesterday, and it's great news for the fans of two legendary franchises: One Piece and Dynasty Warriors.

Alongside this reveal, the publisher Bandai Namco and the developer Omega Force also dropped a trailer revealing the bonus costumes that will come out both freely on launch and if you opt to pre-order the game. This trailer also gives us a new look on the game's one-vs-all hack-n-slash gameplay, which you can have a look below:

The concept of One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 takes the settings of the Whole Cake Island, and will put you into the shoes of Luffy and his friends to beat-em-up to find the final boss - Big Mom. This arc happens from chapter 829 to 902, so if you want to ruin your funs and go see the manga first - those are the ones to search for.

Nevertheless, through the first cinematic part of the trailer, you can see Luffy unlocks his Gear 4 - Snakeman to punch his way through the land of Wano. It has gathered a lot of strong people, including Basin Hawkins, Shanks and Marco, and they're down to fight for the last showdown to find who's the crew to get the piece.

Gameplay features

We've covered in detail how One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 will look like, and you can feel free to have a look right here. In short, it's the splendid mixture of characters from the One Piece series with the hack-n-slash Musou-based combats of the Dynasty Warriors series.

The two have a lot of similarities, while the Luffy, Nami, Zoro and his crew all have their normal attacks, strong attacks, and special skills in the series, which makes them blend perfectly. Through this game, you can now feel the satisfaction of controlling Luffy using his elastic body to roll, punch and kick his foes to the ground.

On the other hand, you can also explore the Whole Cake Island through the eyes of other characters as well. Their appearances will very likely to occur in certain quests, and if Omega Force keeps the free-play modes from the Dynasty Warriors series, you will also be able to bring your favorite crew members on every mission you want.
