One Piece Burning Blood: Blackbeard Confirmed, New Story Mode Trailer Spoils Character Deaths


There’s plenty of excitement over One Piece: Burning Blood, a fighting game that features characters and locations from the beloved anime. Set in the Marineford arc, Luffy and his crew must face off against Blackbeard in an epic battle, a lot of which may have been spoiled in the video below. Anyone interested in One Piece: Burning Blood may want to avoid the trailer, while those who have already watched the anime or read the manga will already know what happened. There are plenty of explosions, wild techniques and even death, which is surprising to see in a game trailer, though it might be catered to those who are already One Piece fans. Gematsu has confirmed that Marshall D. Teach aka Blackbeard will be one of the playable characters in One Piece: Burning Blood. The villain is showcased well in the trailer below and proves to be a force that won’t be easy to beat. It looks like Luffy and his crew will have their hands full with this guy. Fans of the series will be happy to know that they will be able to play the Marineford arc through multiple perspectives. This should add more depth and intrigue to the story while also adding to the villain’s main motivations. With tons of action and cutscenes with great visuals, it seems that One Piece: Burning Blood is a fighting game that fans of the series can get excited for. Prior to this, most of the One Piece video games had Dynasty Warriors-style gameplay, since Omega Force developed it. One Piece: Burning Blood will be available on the PS4, Xbox One and PS Vita on May 31 for North America and June 3 for Europe. Bandai Namco has confirmed that a PC version of the anime fighter will also be available in June.
