One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 has more open spaces

Latest details on Namco Bandai's PS3 and PS Vita sequel.

Famitsu this week has new details on One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2, coming to PlayStation 3 and PS Vita in Japan on March 20, 2013, and to PlayStation 3 in Europe during summer 2013.

A sequel to the first game, launched this year, was envisioned during its development. The first game was meant to be a reproduction of One Piece. With the sequel, the team is looking into the game characteristics that were incomparable. The team’s first hurdle was, “To what extend should the characters appear on screen?”

Compared to the first game, the stages now have more ups and downs, and open spaces. In that way, you really can’t compare it. Additionally, the first game’s combo flow was reviewed and is being improved upon in the sequel.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is currently 80 percent complete.

Thanks, Game Nyarth.
