One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 will embark on an aquatic adventure next summer, when the Omega Force developed sequel sails to European shores. The anticipated title was only announced in Japan last week, but Namco Bandai has already confirmed that the PlayStation 3 release will launch via the PlayStation Network overseas. Sadly, there was no mention of whether the PlayStation Vita version will follow in its console counterpart’s footsteps.

For the uninitiated, Pirate Warriors mixes One Piece’s characters with Dynasty Warriors’ tried-and-tested gameplay. The original title proved a massive commercial success in Japan, selling over 650,000 units during its launch week. The follow-up will boast new characters and modes, though additional details are scarce.
