One Piece: Pirate Warrior 3 is the next title to be released in the Pirate Warrior series, a Dynasty Warriors styled game that covers the story of the Straw hat pirates and their adventures on the road to finding One Piece. One Piece is one of the most popular manga/anime series in the world and so when something is released with its branding it usually sells. As a fan of the series I myself have quite a few games based on the series, but I have never bought one of the Pirate warriors titles.
You might ask if, why?
To which i’ll simply reply; “I find Dynasty warrior type games a bit boring and repetitive”. This is because these games are mainly about beating hundreds of mindless drones till the next part of the story unlocks to continue, and as you may know I prefer story driven games. For a title like OP:PW3 that I already know the the story too, I just don’t find it warrants a $60 price tag for repetitive gameplay.
I would be content with not ever playing the games, but it seems Namco Bandai have figured out a way to shake the money in my wallet free. That way is steam. The third game will be released worldwide on PS4, PS3, PS Vita and PC during the summer of this year, and as you know PC usually has the better sales and price drops so I may just end up grabbing this one during one of the many steam sales that steam holds throughout the year.
If you’re at all interested in playing this game when it releases then you’re going to have a PC that can run it.
These are the requirements to play the game:

It’s good to see that so many Japanese titles are now appearing on PC.
amen to that. I have a huge list so far and I’m just adding more to it each day. So much so that I may not even write about all of them and may just talk about them on the podcast once per month.
