One Piece: Burning Blood

Bandai Namco has released a new trailer and screenshots for One Piece: Burning Blood, dubbed “Battle for Marineford,” introducing the different battle styles and game modes that the fighting game offers.

The trailer introduces One Piece: Burning Blood‘s three-versus-three fighting action, where players can utilize their entire team to execute “Unity Chain” and “Unity Assist” attacks. Unity Chain attacks give players the ability to call upon allies for additional combo attack strength, while Unity Assists can be used to break an opponent’s combos.

Also showcased are various game modes, including:

  • Free mode – A versus mode where players can set up their own battle variables.
  • Online mode – Players take-on players from around the world.
  • Paramount War mode – Players can experience the Marineford Arc of the One Piece story from different character perspectives.
  • WANTED Versus mode – Gives players a chance to collect bounties through various challenges.

The new screenshots showcase playable characters Bentham (Bon Clay), Buggy, Burgess, Ivankov, Koala, and Shanks.

Bandai Namco also announced that One Piece: Burning Blood will have over 60, non-playable support characters, which can add various buffs (increased attack damage, defense fortification, the ability to heal allies, etc.) to your character.

One Piece: Burning Blood is due out for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan on April 21, and for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PS Vita in North America on May 31 and in Europe on June 3. A PC version will also be released in June.
