One Piece: Burning Blood Story Trailer Explores Marineford Episode

February 23, 2016 Written by Michael Briers

Bandai Namco has today unveiled a new story trailer for One Piece: Burning Blood, focusing on the brawler’s Marineford episode all the while welcoming Blackbeard to the fray. Whitebeard and Shanks can be spotted in the new footage, too. 

Centering on the climax battles of Burning Blood‘s Marineford Arc, Bandai noted that the rip-roaring action can be experienced from multiple perspectives, as you lead a small army of swashbuckling pirates against the Navy Admirals. 

Known as Paramount War and War of the Best in the One Piece anime, the Marineford arc is of particular importance to Luffy and Co., and there’s slight spoilers included in the trailer above if you’re wanting to go into Burning Blood with a relatively blank slate. 

One Piece: Burning Blood is on course to make its debut in Japan come April 21. Following that, Bandai’s musou game will hit North America and Europe on May 31 and June 3, 2016 respectively. It’ll be available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, PC and, for the first time in the One Piece series, Xbox One.
