Bandai Namco Games has released the latest video for their upcoming One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3.

The all Japanese trailer is positively stuffed full of characters, action, humor and intrigue that is, admittedly, lost on me. But even I, a casual fan, can still appreciate what's on display. This looks like fun and absurd Dynasty Warriors-esque title that hopefully won't take itself so seriously.

Luffy stretching his neck back like he's Dhalsim certainly seems to point in the direction of 'ridiculous'.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 will follow the original storyline (there was a time jump at one point during the very long running series) as Luffy first sets out to become Pirate King. Players can recruit all the members of the Straw Hat Crew as well as travel to many of the locations found across the show, manga and games.

"The worldwide popularity of One Piece continues to grow due to the franchise's fantastic action, storytelling, and character development," Chris Gilbert, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Bandai Namco Games America, said in a prepared statement. "One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3's magical blend of hijinks and humor with Dynasty Warriors' frenetic gameplay style has produced a truly satisfying experience that One Piece fans will surely look forward to enjoying in the summer of 2015."

Japanese fans will be getting Pirate Warriors 3 on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita on March 26. No official date has been revealed as of yet for a North American release.
