One Piece: Pirate Warriors U.S. release date set

One Piece: Pirate Warriors will launch for PlayStation Network on September 25 in North America, Namco Bandai has announced.

The story is too old to be commented.

It is diappointing that this game got a digital only release, but it does probably save Namco some money and they may not have wanted to risk it.

Plus if I remember correctly, Warriors Orochi 3 was released as a digital only game on the PS3 while a physical version for the Xbox 360 was released. The reason given by Tecmo was due to a strange policy with Sony USA that made it so they couldn't release non-English dubbed games on the console in North America.

Then again, that didn't stop Aksys games with a physical release of Record of Agarest War 2 though...

Well it's a retail release where I am. I'm guessing that with Naruto being the dominant anime/manga force in America that digital seemed the more logical move.

One Piece is pretty popular everywhere. I guess a digital release is better than no release, but I'm really getting tired of seeing all the games I want released as digital only.

I don't care if it's only a limited run like what happened with Xenoblade Chronicles, I'd really prefer they release these games in physical form, even if it's only for a limited time.
