    Bandai Namco has released three new character trailer for One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 featuring Rob Lucci, Sabo, and Trafalagar Law.

    View the three character trailers below:

    Here is an overview of each character:

    Rob Lucci

    An intelligence officer of a clandestine World Government organization called “CP9.” He pretended to be a peg/nail foreman at the Galley-La Company in order to search for the blueprints to the Ancient Weapon “Pluton.” He can use the almost superhuman “Six Powers” and the Devil Fruit power, having eaten the Cat-Cat Fruit Leopard Model. He possesses the greatest combat abilities for a CP9 agent, and is known as a cold “killing machine.”

    • Action Type: Sky – Lucci wields the power of the Cat-Cat Fruit to transform into a leopard. He fights at his best when switching between a faster human form and a high-powered human-monster form with a wider range. He can also use the “Geppo” Six Powers move to move through the air.

    Sabo

    The Revolutionary Army General Chief of Staff. Luffy and Ace’s brother. Born as a noble of the Kingdom of Goa, he came to hate its corrupt aristocratic society and set out for the high seas. He is a Haki user, and his weapon is his beloved iron pipe that he has been using since childhood, as well as a strong grip technique that he calls the Dragon’s Claw. He inherited Ace’s Flame-Flame Fruit power.

    • Action Type: Speed – Sabo wields the flame power of the Flame-Flame Fruit and the Dragon Claw Fist technique using his Haki. Versatile, he has a wide range of techniques to tackle different situations, such as a wide-range attack with a stream of burning flames, or a concentrated attack with a flowing series of martial arts moves.

    Trafalagar Law

    Captain of the Heart Pirates, a doctor. Also known as the “Surgeon of Death.” A power user who ate the Op-Op Fruit, he can create a spherical space inside which he can then move objects or parts of bodies around, and even reattach them differently. He can also just swap people’s minds around.

    • Action Type: Technique – Law can use the ROOM skill he gained from the Op-Op fruit to dish out area attacks reaching even enemies who are well away!

    Here is an overview of the game:
