one piece pirate warriors 2 500x273 One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2s 2nd PV re introduces the Straw Hats Pirates crew

Planning on watching One Piece Film Z (our review here), but not entirely familiar with what the nine individual members in the Straw Hat Pirates crew can do?

Here, watch this One Piece Kaizoku Musou 2 (Pirate Warriors 2), which briefly shows off what the members in the powered-up Straw Hat Pirates crew can do in this sequel.

Both the movie and game are set in the New World (second half of the Grand Line) ocean route – basically the most dangerous seas in the world of of One Piece, so the two aren’t exactly unrelated.

In fact, gamers who pre-order the game in Japan will receive a One Piece Film Z costume DLC for protagonist Monkey D. Luffy. We’re not too sure if the pre-order bonus would apply to Singapore and the rest of Asia at the moment.

The trailer also offers a sneak peak at the “Dream Story for Pirates Log”, an extra mode – featuring an original story, to boot – in which gamers can play through a series of dream matches never before seen in the manga and anime series. A similar “dream match” mode was also included in the first One Piece: Pirate Warriors, but it appears that Pirate Warriors 2‘s mode will focus more on Devil Fruit ability users.

The Japanese version of One Piece Kaizoku Musou 2 is slated to be released for the PS3 and PS Vita in Japan and Asia (including Singapore) March 20, 2013.
