"One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2" Will Skip PS Vita in North America

Namco Bandai rep confirms plans are just for PS3 version

Namco Bandai had plenty of good news for us today, so it probably won't hurt to slip a little disappointment in there somewhere. While One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is indeed westward bound, the company confirmed that we will not be getting the PS Vita version when it arrives in North America.

 

Japan gets to continue the adventures of the Straw Hats on both PlayStation 3 and Vita, and this is what a Namco Bandai rep said to Siliconera when asked about its status in the west: "Unfortunately the game will not be available for Vita in North American territories."

 

It's too bad for fans of Sony's beleaguered portable, but at least we're getting the sequel in some form in both North America and Europe.
