One_Piece_Unlimited_World_RedOne Piece is one of the long running manga/anime whose games often get overlooked. It’s easy to see why. Like movie tie-in games they get a bad wrap often seen as cash grabs. Returning to the Unlimited series of games, will this port from the 3DS be as strong as the Dynasty Warriors inspired Pirate Warriors 2?
