The pirate that inspired Luffy to go on his journey.

One Piece; Pirate Warriors 3

Shanks might be playable for the first time in One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3, if Jump magazine is to go by.

The latest issue of the magazine teases, “That big pirate playable for the first time? Check the March 23 issue of Weekly Jump for more details!”

The tease comes with a silhouette, which apparently resembles Shanks.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 is due out for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita in Japan next Thursday, March 26, and in North America and Europe this summer alongside an additional PC version.
