Namco Bandai x Tecmo Koei tease revealed as another Musou spin-off along the lines of Dynasty Warriors Gundam, Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage.
Last week, Namco Bandai put up a teaser site for a project that would mix one of its properties with one from rival publisher Tecmo Koei. The countdown on that site has expired, and the crossover project has been revealed as One Piece: Kaizoku Musou.
One Piece: Kaizoku Musou will combine Namco Bandai's One Piece series of anime and manga with Tecmo Koei's Sengoku Musou series of action games, better known in the West as Dynasty Warriors. The game is currently in development for the PlayStation 3.
This is not the first time Namco Bandai and Tecmo Koei have collaborated on a project. Since 2007, the pair have released three Dynasty Warriors Gundam titles, combining Namco Bandai's giant robot license with gameplay in the mold of Tecmo Koei's historical beat-'em-up series. Tecmo Koei has also adapted its Dynasty Warriors series for Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage, released as Hokuto Musou in Japan.
Although both the Gundam and Fist of the North Star series resembled the Dynasty Warriors franchise, they weren't direct crossovers. In both cases, the Tecmo Koei franchise was present only in the basic gameplay and structure of the series.
i wonder will this game be like DW? if so, i'll be so exited to play it but in the other way, I think it'll be so strange because when I saw the quote "Luffy vs. Cao Cao" in the first time I was just... what the heck?! i can't believe that the real ancient China will fight with the created pirate animation... can it be in real life??? but it's just the small point of me thinking in negative way. even though it looks weird but if they mix it together, this game maybe cool!! sorry for bad english.. ^^
I told a friend about this game and she thought I was talking about a Dynasty Warriors swimsuit. -.-
"Although both the Gundam and Fist of the North Star series resembled the Dynasty Warriors franchise, they weren't direct crossovers" what the? ... The naming of Dynasty Warrior for every Musou series in US has made everything very confusing ... why people in US cannot make use their original title???? Gundam Warrior, Fist of The North Star Warrior, One Piece Warrior rather than Dynasty Warrior : Gundam, DW : Fist of the north star, or DW : One Piece ... this is like the naming of tales series case ... when US named every tales series as Tales of Destiny and when the real sequel of Tales of Destiny come out, they don't launch it because this wrong naming ... So Fail!
My memorey is full to the max on my ps3, and how hard could it be to port it to xbox? You would make more money too
PLEASE PLEASE!!!! bandai namco PLEASE CREATE AN Xbox VERSION OF THIS!!! i cant afford to buy another console T_T
when i get a chance i am going to be my favourite character zoro when this games comes out but it probably isnt going to be till next year or something
why this here ,One Piece is not as popular as DBZ and Naruto ,it probably will not be released here.
THAT SUCKS!!!!! what the Hell all that hype for ANOTHER Dynasty Warriors game?!?!?! For the love of god Tekken VS Dead or Alive would have been a bigger deal and a better game. Screw this!!
please please please please please please please please please come out for the USA Xbox 360 as well i swear i will do anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111111
1 if Hokuto Musou (fist of the north star ken's rage) made it here I am sure this will. 2 NamcoBandai should seriously consider making a SoulCalibur Musou game or use it as a minigame in the next SoulCalibur game...... come on i can't be the only one who thinks that would be an epic minigame...if not a full game of course
Very good news!! I'm really excited for a good One Piece action game! Also, to all the people complaining about this.... well... I actually have no problem with that! This game is clearly gonna be made with One Piece fans in mind. I loved Hokuto Musou, but part of that is cause I love Fist of the North Star! Cannot wait. Dynasty Warrior games aren't really my cup of tea, but the formula totally fits One Piece! Knocking around a bunch of fodder marine's with rubber powers sounds like a blast!! Super hype!
out of all the anime's out there..... you chose one piece..... really? I mean its a decent anime but idk about being a DW game.... I mean are you going to be on a ship fighting hordes of pirates? But who knows, it might turn out to be one of their best games yet.
i love Dynasty Warriors, and I loved with a passion DWgundam 2. Best in series. Koei makes some pretty good games, but now, it seems like they are doing just mere cash ins (shocking right?) and this is just getting rediculous.
So this will be better then Dynasty Warriors: Gundam and Dynasty Warriors: Fist of Northstar because?
Biggest letdown ever. I was hoping for Team Ninja to have something to do with it. All Koei does is rehashes.
OMG I was just watching OnePiece for the first time a few weeks ago and I absolutely loved it so much that Ive watched 450 eps already and now I hear its gonna get a next gen game and its freakin DW Style WTF!! its like a dream come true.Even though they are repetitive I love the SW and DW series and I love One Piece so I will definitely love this game!
when you think about it this cross over type would be the best this, the reason is at the point of where the manga is the whole crew can take on a few thousand men each haha so it fits perfect with this series Even if it's not that great i will still play it!
"One Piece".I Was sold because of that word. Wonder who's "Lu Bu" here. Shanks? White Beard? Mihawk? Hope this things were translated, or better yet, got dual language ...
Never even heard of One Piece so I just typed it in on Google. I'm getting this game! Been a huuuge fan of Dynasty Warriors since it all started. People hate the games due to their repetition but when you're following the same story there's only so many changes you can make.. You can't re-write Chinese history. The last Dynasty Warriors was one of the best, gaming websites won't do them much justice as they're aimed at the average gamer. But for someone that's been following them since day one it was great :) Looking forward to this, should be brilliant.
Buying this game for sure, hopefully they'll make it a high quality product, as close as possible to the awesome anime and just as Santesyu mentioned, they should keep the original Japanese Voices with adding English subtitles and menus, it'll be the best :)
And BTW all you hoping for a N/A release you better hope the game have subtitles and you keep the JP voices because the NA voices of One Piece SUCKS.
