I don’t think I’d ever survive in the world of One Piece. And not just because the lands happen to be surrounded by murderous seas populated by oceanic wildlife that was too badass even for Australia’s nightmare fuel waters. No, it’s the fact that in order to survive, you need to take a bite out of a Devil Fruit and play the lottery when it comes to getting a specific power from said fruit. And man, I just do not dig raw fruit.
Still, it’s kind of worth it if you luck out and get yourself a Logia-class ability. What’s a Logia you ask? Well it ain’t a Pokémon!
Logia-class Devil Fruit users essentially become their element, and also find themselves impervious to normal physical attacks. And One Piece has already established plenty of these premium powerhouse Logia-users. There’s fire, lightning, sand, smoke and magma variations of the power-set, each with their very own pros and cons.
Anyway, I’m seguing this into the upcoming One Piece: Burning Blood game, a brawler which will feature special Logia Guard attacks in that brawler. As Banana Namibia Bandai Namco revealed in a press release, these movies will allow instances where “some characters are untouchable by physical attacks for limited amount of time”.
However, the powerful Haki blow is a solid counter to this guard. Last but not least, as in the original Manga, Devil Fruits will be the source of unique massive Special Attacks and Reinforced Special Attacks!
Snootches. And to keep the Pirate King ship sailing, here’s a stack of new screenshots as well:
One Piece: Burning Blood is scheduled for a 2016 release, with a confirmed cast so far that includes Luffy, Sabo, Smoker, Donquixote Doflamingo, Enel, Portgas D. Ace, Trafalgar Law, Bartolomeo, and Crocodile.
It’s supposedly a more strategic game than previous incarnations of the franchise, which is handy when the most popular character is a mentally-disturbed glutton made out of rubber.
