"One Piece Great Pirate Colosseum" will be a Nintendo 3DS exclusive. Bandai Namco

Bandai Namco is certainly not yet finished with the “One Piece” franchise for gaming. The publisher has announced a new title, “One Piece: Grand Pirate Colosseum,” which is heading to the Nintendo 3DS as an exclusive game.

Siliconera reported that the first few glimpses of the game have been teased on the latest issue of Jump magazine, a Japanese manga magazine. It appears that fans can look forwardto a 2D battle action, similar to retro fighting games as seen in the screenshots via the link above.

Additionally, the source stated that players can sail around the world and create a team to have a go at the prize money. “One Piece: Great Pirate Colosseum” seems like a pretty straightforward title, and the goal appears simple enough as well.

There’s also a teaser website recently opened for the game, Gematsu reported. The website does not contain much as far as details are concerned. There are also no announcements yet as to when the game will hit retailers and at what price. Hopefully, Bandai Namco will reveal more along the way.

Just last April, another game from the franchise, “One Piece: Burning Blood” was released and performed very well in its hometown. According to Push Square, the game had overtaken the Japanese charts and claimed the top one and two spots for its PS4 and PS Vita versions respectively.

The reception is a pretty good one, as it has only recently released in Japan. “One Piece: Burning Blood” will launch in North American on May 31 and in Europe on June 3 for the PS4, PS Vita and Xbox One platforms. Though it remains to be seen whether Bandai Namco can get a similar count for the new “One Piece” game.

In the meantime, fans can check out the features for the Collector’s Edition of “One Piece: Burning Blood,” as seen in the unboxing video below.
