Pirate Warriors 4 arrives in the Game Pass
The very popular One Piece has just put one of its games on Xbox Game Pass earlier in the day. One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 will be available for download on Game Pass today. The game was developed by Banzai NAMC and released on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2020.
One Piece is a written and manga series designed by the legendary Ericeira Odd. Produced by the Japanese manga company Squash under their magazine called Shōnen Jump, the series exploded in popularity since its release.
The chapters of One Piece come out almost every week since its first publication in 1997. The series is the most sold manga of all times and the second most selling cartoon of all time, beating Batman earlier. This year. The series has even a popular animated adaptation by Tea Animation.
The One Piece Pirate Warriors series puts the massive story of One Piece in the hands of the players. Each game has a segment of the narrative arcs of the series that constitute the wider plot of One Piece. The original game followed rather faithfully the first half of the story. The next installments have taken a lot of freedom, the remaining history often changing the main points of the plot and the character arcs to adapt to the vision of the game directions.
One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 focuses on the Whole Cake Island and Want of manga arcs. Whole Cake Island Arc is probably mainly faithful to source material, but Banzai NAMC had to take freedoms with the adaptation of the WANT arc. The Want Arc is not yet finished in the manga, so many points of the plot had to be rewritten or completely written from scratch for the game.
You can get the game for free with an Xbox Game Pass subscription.
