One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 coming to PS3 this summer

Namco Bandai's One Piece-flavored Dynasty Warriors game is getting a sequel. One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 will expand upon the button-mashing original, with new characters and new stages. Like before, it will release exclusively on PlayStation Network--however, it's currently unclear if both PS3 and Vita versions will make the move stateside. Namco Bandai plans on releasing the game this summer.

Reports from Japan have already detailed some of the changes being made to the upcoming sequel. According to Gamers Syndrome, there will be a "What If" mode that should introduce gameplay that breaks canon. In addition, each character will have a separate "Haki" special move, making characters feel less like clones.
