Bandai Namco has today revealed new details about One Piece: Burning Blood. Burning Blood is a dynamic and colorful new fighting game featuring the world’s most famous pirate: Monkey D. Luffy. Engage in massive brawls with Sabo, Ace, Bartolomeo, Ener, Crocodile and Bartolomeo, all featured in the “One Piece” Anime & Manga. There’s also the newly announced Smoker, and you can expect other new characters to join the roster.
One Piece: Burning Blood has several features that add a level of strategy to the fighting in the game. Ever dreamt of Luffy, Sabo and Ace fighting together as one epic team against their enemies? Well players can create a team of 3 characters and swap them out in order to gain a tactical advantage. Certain characters can use special Logia Moves for unique abilities: allowing players to burn through their enemies or even move faster than lightning! Logia Fruits also allow the use of Logia Guard: where some characters are untouchable by physical attacks for limited amount of time. However, the powerful Haki blow is a solid counter to this guard. Last but not least, as in the original Manga, Devil Fruits will be the source of unique massive Special Attacks and Reinforced Special Attacks.
One Piece: Burning Blood is due for release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PlayStation Vita in Europe, Middle-East, Africa and Australasia in 2016.
