One Piece: Pirate Warriors is a One Piece related video game released in Japan on March 1, 2012, in Europe on September 21, 2012, and in South America on September 28, 2012 for the Sony PlayStation 3 with Namco Bandai and Tecmo Koei teaming up to create it and Omega Force, a subsidiary of Tecmo Koei, developing it. The game takes place from the East Blue Saga until the Return to Sabaody Arc.

The title is made with the hopes of creating the "ultimate game", as developers claim that it personifies the "comrades" and Warriors themes in a grand adventure. This game is in honor of One Piece's 15th anniversary, starting back in 1997.
