One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 Coming to PS3 Only in the West

IGN: ''Today, IGN can confirm that One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 -- the sequel to One Piece: Pirate Warriors -- will be translated and localized for western release only on PlayStation 3. It was released on both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in Japan.

“Unfortunately, there are no plans for a Vita release in the Americas,” a representative from publisher Namco Bandai told IGN.''

The story is too old to be commented.

i just dont know why the psv version have left behind......
im fine with it even if its a digital release only.....
i hope in the future... it will be release overseas -_-

It was probably left behind over cost. Koei has been doing less and less and less in their localization process, so this was no doubt a choice to save some money. God knows these titles don't really sell (since they don't market them).

developers just don't feel comfortable with the vita fan base i assume
even though vita is a great handheld the sales might be a bit disappointing for developers to release something for it and not make a profit

if i was a developer i would do the same thing and release games on systems where i think i would make the most profit for such as the xb360 and ps3

This was confirmed quite a while ago. When the game was first announced to be coming overseas even.

I just cant bring myself to buy a 50 dollar digital game. That is the only reason I didn't play the first one. I freaking love One Piece, but I just can't force myself to buy it.
