One Piece: Pirate Warriors Coming September 25th

In April, everyone’s favorite stretchable Japanese pirate was announced to be coming stateside. Today, the release date has been revealed to be September 25th. Namco Bandai have also announced the game to be a Playstation Network exclusive with no plans for retail. Bad news for those who need a physical trophy of their One Piece PS3 fandom.

In One Piece: Pirate Warriors, players take control of Luffy and other pirates to defeat an onslaught of pirates.

With the confirmation of a PSN-only release, I suppose the possibility that One Piece has a steady fan base in North America has been ruled out.
