Bandai Namco has released a new selection of character trailers for One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 featuring Brook, Franky, Nico Robin, Smoker, Tashigi, Tony Tony Chopper.
Here is an overview of each character, via the game’s official website:
Musician and swordsman of the Straw Hat Pirates, also known as “Humming Swordsman Brook.” He was a guard captain in a kingdom in the West Blue before becoming a pirate. He died in combat, but having eaten the Revive-Revive Fruit, he came back as a skeleton. Brook had his shadow stolen by Moria, but he successfully took it back after meeting Luffy. Only Sanji surpasses his love of women, he loves making bone-based puns.
- Action Type: Speed – Brook fights using high-speed fencing swordplay, freezing his enemies, putting them to sleep, and so on. Included in his bag of tricks is the ability to separate his soul from his body to gain invincibility, or drink milk to restore health. A tricky character indeed!
Disciple to Tom, the legendary shipwright of Water Seven, Franky is the man who built the Straw Hats their new vessel, the Thousand Sunny. His dream is to craft the perfect boat and sail it to the end of the sea. He joined the Straw Hats in order to see just how far the Thousand Sunny would go. As the resident shipwright, Franky handles steering, repairs, and ship modifications. He also excels in developing weapons of all sizes. After receiving a grave injury in an accident, he learned to modify his own body. As such, this cyborg’s body is riddled with different gadgets and weapons beyond human understanding.
- Action Type: Power – Franky fights using the heavy artillery installed in his body, usually at long range. He ends each attack with a silly performance that may backfire.
Born and raised in Ohara, the land of archaeology, Robin is a gifted scholar who earned her degree at a young age. Her dream is to read the Rio Poneglyph and learn the world’s true history.
Robin is the sole survivor of Ohara, destroyed by the government. The World Government labeled her the Demon of Ohara and tried to bring her in because she can read the forbidden ancient texts. In order to survive, Robin worked with many seedy organizations, none of whom she trusted…until the Straw Hat Pirates won her over and she decided to help them. As she journeys with the rest of Luffy’s Crew, she continues to seek the lost truth of the past!
- Action Type: Technique – Robin’s strength lies in her ability to grow limbs anywhere, resulting in a wide attack range.
She can pummel her enemies with a flurry of multi-hit attacks.
A Navy GL 5th Branch (G-5) Vice Admiral, also known as “White Chase” Smoker. He ate the Plume-Plume Fruit, so can freely turn his body into smoke. His club also has Sea Prism Stone embedded in its tip, which can nullify Devil Fruit powers. Since meeting Luffy, he became obsessed with capturing the Straw Hat Pirates. After the Paramount War, he requested a transfer to the New World to continue the chase, and was placed in the G-5.
- Action Type: Sky – Smoker wields the power of the Plume-Plume Fruit. Enemies surrounded by smoke from and airborne can then be attacked using a launching attack. He can also use his abilities to fly.
A Navy GL 5th Branch (G-5) Captain, one of Smoker’s subordinates. She is very knowledgeable about bladed weapons, in general, and she wants to collect all the famous swords that have fallen into the hands of evildoers around the world. After meeting Zoro in Roguetown, the two become rivals. After Smoker requested a transfer to the New World, she joined him and was placed in G-5. She has won the admiration of the sailors under her command.
- Action Type: Speed – Tashigi is a lightning-fast swordswoman. Her blisteringly fast blows leave no room for counterattack. Able to catch enemies in a flash, she can bring the fight to the enemy.
Tony Tony Chopper
Chopper is a blue-nosed reindeer who gained human intelligence after eating a certain Devil Fruit. He was treated as a monster until Dr. Hililuk took him in. When the doctor passed away, Chopper decided he would work as a doctor himself. His dream is to become a “cure-all” doctor who can treat any sickness.
With his vast knowledge and expertise, he’s an excellent ship doctor, but in combat he uses the power of his Devil Fruit so he can protect everyone like the man he is!
As expected of a former reindeer, he has a keen sense of smell and can talk to other animals.
- Action Type: Technique – Chopper has a varied fighting style that makes use of kung fu, horn attacks, and an array of different forms. His attacks aren’t that powerful, but he can inflict the Scope status effect for major damage.
