This Is How You Bring a Manga to Life!

There are a lot of surprises in One Piece: Pirate Warriors but none are quite as impressive as how good the game looks. Much like Sega's Valkyria Chronicles, the entire game is rendered in a cell-shaded art style, with all the shadows made to look as if done via a colored pencil. The result is the perfect visual style for a game based on a Japanese manga-turned-anime.


To see how this art style looks both in and out of One Piece: Pirate Warriors' pre-rendered cut scenes, just check out the video above.



It doesn't look that good, the Naruto fighting games came out better with their implementation cel-shading.

Not excited for another damn game full of QTEs, especially since this is already a property made into a TV show and movies.
