One Piece: Burning Blood

Grab your straw hats and weigh anchor – we’re setting sail for a One Piece summer!

As you may already be aware, we will be releasing One Piece (Uncut) Collections 13 and 14 on DVD over the next few months, with Collection 13 out in October and 14 in November. In addition to this, our friends over at Bandai Namco are releasing their newest One Piece game in June, which is set to be a smash-hit!

One Piece Collection 13

All this One Piece news has got us bursting with pirate-themed excitement, so when we recently had the opportunity to go over to the Bandai Namco Headquarters in London to try out One Piece: Burning Blood, we jumped at the chance! And who better to send over than our resident One Piece aficionado Fraser, and total gaming novice Darcy?

One Piece: Burning Blood

A fighting game pitting Luffy & Co. against the likes of Edward Newgate, Bon Clay and Buggy, One Piece: Burning Blood is a great way to experience the original story from a whole new perspective.

“Set sail with the Straw Hat Crew and collect your bounty in the most epic anime fighter this side of the Grand Line! Use Devil Fruit abilities, Haki techniques, and punishing combos to turn the tide in the ultimate One Piece battle royale!”

Fraser: I’ve been waiting for a One Piece game like this for years, and from what I’ve played, One Piece: Burning Blood will not disappoint. Our session started off with a very simple tutorial that eased us into the game, followed by some much rougher Player vs. CPU. After a few rounds we felt confident enough to dive into the multiplayer… I have to admit Darcy nearly beat me. Although our time with the game was short, it was extremely fun. The game looked absolutely beautiful and even those of you who aren’t fans of One Piece will find lots to enjoy.  I’ll be counting down the days until I can pick up Burning Blood for PS4 next month.

Darcy: I’m pretty new to One Piece and my gaming knowledge doesn’t really extend past the occasional game of Mario Kart, so I was pretty glad to have Fraser there to walk me through it! I had an absolute blast: the game caters to all skill levels and the on-screen prompts helped me to learn new moves quickly and easily – it wasn’t long before I was kicking some pirate butt! The cut scenes were also really engaging and fun and I’d say that even if you’re new to One Piece and are unfamiliar with the storyline, you’ll still have a great time playing this. Also don’t listen to Fraser, I totally beat him.
