One Piece: Pirates Warriors Review | Capsule Computers

Luke Halliday writes:

"The One Piece franchise is the best selling anime and manga property in all of Japan, so it’s no wonder that One Piece: Pirate Warriors or as the Japanese know it One Piece: Kaizoku Musou was a major hit in the land of the rising sun. It really goes without saying that anything with the One Piece name attached turns into cash in Japan, it is just that much of a phenomenon. But the same can not be said for the Western world which doesn’t think too highly of One Piece largely due to the horrible 4Kids dub of the anime that ruined the franchise for many people.

So how does one bring a game such as One Piece: Pirate Warriors to the West and try to sell it? Well it’s simple really, don’t aim for mass appeal, just try and hit that niche audience of westerners that love One Piece and you know, it works in the case of One Piece: Pirate Warriors. It works, but to what extent?"

I would buy it but kind of scared since i got PSN +. Sooner or later this might be offered free i bought so many games on psn months later they became free. So i try not to buy nothing from psn anymore. LOL

@Simon Yeah, I have a feeling this could be put on sale at least at some point. I don't know if it is going to be offered free at any point since they rarely do expensive games like this one. If so though it would be great.

I doubt they will make this game free. It's too much of obscure one. They usually make the popular ones that already sold heaps free
