Famed Japanese developers Spike Chunsoft Co Ltd are teaming up with Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe to announce the next battle in the One Piece series.

One Piece: Burning Blood will promise to bring the wacky, rich One Piece universe for the first time to Xbox One. It will offer fast-paced gameplay with a never-seen-before elements such as Logia Devil Fruits and “Haki” throwing massive special moves.

If you’ve not seen the One Piece universe before, it’s an Anime tie-in with a Japanese manga series. This series follows the adventures of Monkey D, Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates. Luffy explores the ocean in search of the world’s ultimate treasure, the “One Piece”, in order to become the next Pirate King.

Meeting our fans on public and private events is a good way to get feedback on our games and see what the expectations are. One Piece: Burning Blood is the perfect example of us creating a game impeccably in–line with fans’ desires. The long awaited pure fighting-game based on the One Piece universe is here! To add to that, we are quite happy to release the game on multiple platforms, especially on a Microsoft console, since it’s the first time ever for a One Piece game.

One Piece: Burning Blood is slated for a 2016 release and is looking bonkers.
