One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 Might Have Shanks Playable

By   /   Mar 17, 2015

In September 2014, we got the first look at One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 thanks to a trailer released by Bandai Namco. This was followed by another trailer that came alongside the jolly good announcement that it will also be released in the west.

Now, they are teasing more characters that could be playable in the game. Japanese magazine Jump has a new story about the game in their latest issue.

While the issue doesn’t release until March 23, the magazine is already teasing what could be in store. According to online translations, one line teased by them reads “that big pirate playable for the first time? Check the March 23 issue of Weekly Jump for more details!”

This was accompanied by an image (see above) with a silhouetted figure that looks a lot like Shanks.

No surprise there because that is the idea of a tease, not to give away all the good details. So I guess we will have to wait for a couple more days before we can be certain.

Omega Force also has many other games to their credit like Bladestorm: The Hundred Years’ War, and tons of other Warrior games like Dragon Quest Heroes: Yamiryuu to Sekaiju no Shiro, Samurai Warriors and of course, Hyrule Warriors.

One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 is being developed for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It will be releasing in Japan on March 26, 2015 and now that a western release has been confirmed, the developers have also shared a release window for this year’s summers.

What do you think, will One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 have Shanks as a playable character?
