ONE PIECE: PIRATE WARRIORS 2 introduces Haki attacks, an exciting and game-changing battle element from the ONE PIECE universe. Haki will allow players to overpower thousands of enemies at once with wide destructive force or switch their battle styles for a more focused tactical gameplay strategy.

Many of these characters will be playable for the first time ever and fans will be delighted to be able to add these characters to their crew. Through evolved crew strike actions, players will be able to customize their crewmates who will then respond to the call to attack anytime and anywhere, enhancing the sense of togetherness during battle with more freedom to pull-off powerful crew combo attacks.
