We are a couple of months away until we reach 2020 and One Piece is still kicking butt in the anime/manga community. If you been following the games, you might have heard that there is plans of another Pirate Warriors game. One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 will be the fourth game in the Pirate Warrior series where the story will go beyond to the current arc, Wano. It’s been announced today that two new characters will be joining the game as playable characters. If you been following the series, Luffy has an unique ability called Gear 4 where Luffy inflates himself and can use his rubber powers and haki at the same time to increase his strength and speed. In Pirate Warriors 4, get ready to play Luffy’s extended use of Gear 4 called Snakeman (or Snake-Man) Luffy. In this form, Luffy still uses Gear 4, but he appears slim and agile than his regular Bounce-Man form. Also joining in this game is Big Mom’s strongest commanders named Katakuri. Katakuri is a powerful foe who ate the devil fruit Mochi-Mochi Fruit. With his powers, Katakuri fights almost like Luffy’s style but instead of rubber powers, it’s all mochi (a Japanese rice gelatin). In the series, these two fought during the Big Cake Island arc.
Here is the current playable roster for this game:
- Luffy (also including Gear 4: Snake-Man and Bounce-Man)
That roster definitely continues to look better and better. I’m thinking about getting this one. The only thing possibly holding me back right now is it does look pretty similar to 3. Not a bad thing but if the price also goes down fast then maybe I should wait a bit.
Yeah it does. It looks like they’re giving us some new characters to play with. I would love to try out Luffy’s new Gear 4. I would imagine this being like PW3. IN the same way like you, I am hoping the price goes down fast so we can get this.
