The PlayStation Vita version of One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 will not be released in North America, Namco Bandai has confirmed.
The sequel is pencilled in for release in western territories on PlayStation 3 later this year. However, the press blurb neglected to mention the planned PS Vita version, already announced for Japan.
Namco later confirmed to Siliconera: “Unfortunately the game will not be available for Vita in North American territories."
Presumably this also means we won’t see it in Europe either, though we’ve yet to hear anything on the fate of the PAL version.
The original One Piece: Pirate was developed by Omega Force and takes the form of a hack ‘n slash title released exclusively for PS3.
