Sequel to manga/anime license action title will be out for PS3; PS Vita not receiving English release.

by

Fans of the One Piece anime and manga series will be able to check out the English version of the upcoming action game One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 this summer.

The game is now scheduled for a summer release this year. However, only the PS3 version will be making it to the West. According to a Siliconera report, a Namco representative has said that the Vita version will not be localized into English.

The Japanese version will be out on March 20 for both platforms.

Why hasn't Gamespot reviewed this game yet?

Wha? No North American release for Vita? Guess that means importing the Japanese version and, well. . .  not understanding a damn thing but enjoying endless thrashing of entire hordes. ; )

Let's just hope this one isn't a just great combat mechanic with literally NOTHING TO USE IT ON,  please for the love of god add more then 10 stages of the exact same box to box crap you did with Pirate Warriors 1, and let's hope they don't do a FotNS Ken's Rage 2 and BUTCHER THE WHOLE FREAKING THING!

Importing the first game from Europe was a pain.... took more than a month to get here in California. Hope they release the game retail.

No Vita version for the US? What the hell? If they've already made the game for Vita, and translated it for PS3, why can't the Vita version use the same translations? What am I missing here? I mean I understand if they don't want to release the hard copy, but atleast make it downloadable?

Looking forward to it. Hope this one has villains as playable characters too. Hoping for larger and more varied maps as well.

It was indeed only released Digitally in the United States. 

I can't wait for this game though, so excited that the US is actually getting it. Looks like all the extra space on my PS3 will actually be getting used. 300 GB or so and hardly used any of it.

@psuedospike you and me both. Thanks to having post on and off, game installs, download games, retail games, and the DC mmo I am on my last 10 gb. I don't want to buy more storage and I don't like deleting things but it looks like I have to again.

@WllDan7 Yeah, man I herd dat!  The new consoles need to ship with at least a Terabyte of built-in storage.  External USB TB drives are pretty cheap now, but I shouldn't have to have one for every console! (maybe if they could figure out partition formatting on external drives instead of eating them whole)  There is literally nothing worse than having to delete downloaded games to make room!  I had to delete half my system to download and install One Piece and down't even get me started on buying a new 250GB HD for my Xbox only to wind up with only 40GB free.


I know those feels.
