Video: One Piece: Pirate Warriors is Brawling Exclusively on PS3

250°
104w ago - Sony Correspondent Andy Burt has shared some video footage below today of One Piece: Pirate Warriors which will be brawling exclusively on the PS3 entertainment system later this year.

To quote: "One Piece" is a household name in Japan, where the mangas and anime series are among the most popular series of all time.

The series follows Monkey D. Luffy, a seafaring pirate in search of treasure on the high seas, who possesses the strange ability to stretch his limbs to cartoonish lengths after eating a mysterious fruit.

While only a handful of the games created in the One Piece universe have seen releases Stateside, the release of PS3-exclusive One Piece: Pirate Warriors sees the series return to the US.

I recently went hands-on with a Japanese build of the game at Namco Bandai's Gamers Day, checking out Pirate Warriors' brawler-based gameplay and over-the-top anime antics.





Pirate Warriors embraces the combat stylings of the Dynasty Warriors series, pitting series protagonist Monkey and a number of other playable characters against wave upon wave of enemies; the playable demo Namco had on-hand showed off the impressive number of enemies the game can display at any given time.
 

XSeed Unveils Way of the Samurai 4 is Coming Exclusively to PS3

106w ago - XSeed Localization Specialist Tom Lipschultz has unveiled today that Way of the Samurai 4 is coming exclusively to the PS3 entertainment system with details below.

To quote: Say WotS?! You heard me right! Spike and Acquire's Way of the Samurai 4 is confirmed for release in North America on the PS3, and we at XSEED Games are pleased to be bringing it to you fully uncut and uncensored.

Torture chambers, naughty midnight missions in the dark and all the brutal slaughtering you can handle await in this riveting and 100% historically accurate (shhhh!) sandbox-style samurai period drama.

Admiral Perry has just opened Japan's borders to the British, allowing for a long-overdue globalization process to begin.

Unfortunately, one of the open ports happens to be a modest Japanese burg called Amihama, where a resistance group known as the "Disciples of Prajna" have taken up arms against the arriving foreigners and all who support them.

As a lone samurai who's just arrived amidst the chaos, it's up to you whether you want to join forces with the Prajna resistance, fight alongside the foreigners in the name of progress or take your stance somewhere between the two by supporting the local government's attempts to quell the violence (through any means possible).

To quote: I'm here today to announce the awesomesauce that is Sideway, a unique adventure platformer set in and around the oh-so-gritty streets of New York City.

To that point, we are inviting folks to come to New York Comic Con on October 8th (at 2:15 in Room 1A21) where we will officially announce the title as a Sony Online Entertainment exclusive to the PlayStation Network.

Yes, that means that I am announcing the announcement here, which I guess makes this a "pre-announcement" to you PlayStation.Blog readers!

We are in sooper-deep development at the moment (please send pizza and beer), which means that the belts are coming off and we're settling into our coding chairs for winter in order to get things all sparkly for a 2011 launch.

We're not ready to spill the beans on some of the really cool features and unique...
