Bandai Namco published today a new batch of information, artwork and screenshots of the upcoming One Piece: Gigant Battle! 2, that will be released on Nintendo DS (In Japan) on November the 17th.
The game features several improvements from it’s predecessor, including enhanced transitions betwen gameplay and cutscenes (and moments in which the character’s portrait appears on screen to deliver a line).
The new “World Domination Mode” allows the player to conquer the island that serves as a setting for the game, earning new territories as he defeats more bosses. This will have several effects and will provide currency that can be used to purchase improvements for the island itself: for instance more shops, an increase in population and so forth.
Nothing is known about a possible western release of this game. It’s predecessor was released just in Europe. While we wait to know more, you can see the screenshots and artwork beyond the cut:
