For those unfamiliar with the title, One Piece: Pirate Warriors was developed by the Japanese based team Koei Tecmo Games and combines the familiarity we have come to know and love with the Dynasty Warriors franchise while also adding in the One Piece twist that fans of the anime have come to know and love.
