Japan Import: One Piece PS3 is an anime fan’s dream

One Piece Luffy Gold PS3It’s a known fact that Japan always gets the coolest PS3s. North America gets the plain and bland ones, while Japan gets different colors and designs. The latest system is something that will particularly interest anime fans. See, One Piece: Pirate Musou is coming out in Japan on March 1, 2011 and it’s the first time a game based on that particular anime/manga is coming to the system. To honor that fact, Namco Bandai and Sony are releasing the PS3 One Piece: Pirate Musou Gold Edition.

The Gold part comes from the fact that it includes a gorgeous, 320gb, gold PS3 and Dualshock 3 controller. It includes a copy of One Piece: Pirate Musou as well. As you can see from the image, the PS3 is entirely gold, with a map etching, One Piece logo and picture of Luffy on the top. The luffy etching also has a red highlight of his X scar across his chest. It’s a gorgeous bundle and region-free, meaning you could play any PS3 game on it from any region. However, it would only be able to play Japanese Blu-rays, DVDs and PS1 games.

It’s appropriate that it’s gold, because it’s also ridiculously expensive. It’s ¥38,170, which means it’d be around $490 if you decided to import it. Blame the conversion rates for the price. Even a standard edition of One Piece: Pirate Musou is ridiculously priced now, as it would cost ¥8,190 (~$105).

As for the game itself, One Piece: Pirate Musou is essentially Dynasty Warriors: One Piece. While some stages are similar to platformers, for the most part people will pick One Piece pirates and help them battle through hoards of enemies while completing objectives in certain areas.
