I'm assuming the dropped characters are going to be those who haven't done much new recently.

Aside from Magellan, I can see Garp, Ceasar, and Ivankov not making the cut this game. I can't see them not including Blackbeard, especially since we finally saw his new look a while back.

Oh shit! We're really getting Wano? As an original story?!
Excited but conflicted.

If Drake is only a boss, I'm going to laugh XD

If there is anyone here who can read Japanese this is taken from latest Famitsu leak:

It talks about cutting characters.
While I couldn't get Sandman (a know OP translator) says former playable characters will be deleted in PW4.
And the bit about Magellan is just the poster assuming (I got the info from somewhere else).

Who will get the cut?

While it would be a shame to lose those characters, I'm still excited to see how many new characters they are adding and how extensive the arial combat will be.

Btw, Big Mom is a large character so not sure if that theory is true.
We've not actually seen a playable Big Mom yet, only her boss battle. We've just kinda been assuming she'll be playable because... well, the devs can't be that dumb. But yeah, no confirmation so far.
It'd be the first thing I'd ask in an interview .

Sounds like no Wapol again :( his AI had a very fleshed out and detailed move set going off of what's seen in the gallery, enough to look like a cut character.

I really want to like this, but playing previous PW bored me after like an hour. Repetitive gameplay is a trademark of musou games I guess :(

An email from Bandai Namco for the game.
Hunh so everyone but Daddy Vinsmoke is confirmed.

I wonder, if Germa Black with be Sanji’s super, a second form like pre/post timeskip in the previous game or just relegated to an alt costume. Kinda hoping it’s an alternate moveset

Definitely looking forward to this

Is there any good one piece games? Like naruto ultimate ninja or something similar?
Common opinion that Pirate Warriors 3 is one of the best, if not the best. If you absolutely cannot stand musou gameplay, the Unlimited (Adventure and Cruise 1+2) games on Wii are more exploration-oriented adventure games. If you can play imports and enjoy(ed) Jump Ultimate Stars, I highly recommend Super Grand Battle X.

None of them quite match up to the spectacle of Ultimate Ninja Storm, though

Damn so it looks as though it may be happening. Going by the list I'd say Whitebeard, Moriah, Kuma, Teach and Magellan. All of them I really tall and if they plan to finally have characters at their actual heights I reckon it would be these 5 as they are too large to be normal characters and in Teach's case may not work with air combo system.

They are promising the biggest roster yet. And Big Mom is confirmed meaning they are just doing something different for the bigger characters and they likely won’t cut then

If Big Mom's in, Whitebeards gonna be in. There's no way they'd miss out on having all Yonko playable, past and present. Hell they can make a whole mode out of it, Dynasty Warriors Empires style.

Hopefully.

I just want them to clarify during the livestream as there is a lot of misinformation going about whether they're cutting characters or not.

They haven’t said anything about cutting characters, just that the roster is huge. How ever there are people assuming the worst due to the new main combat system being air focused as a change

Its more to with a section from the latest Famitsu leak talking about cutting characters and that Magellan may be one of them.

FYI that’s the Famitsu writer speculating due to the new air combat
Hopefully that is all it is.

On a related note there was apparently a roster leak on 4chan (Take with a massive grain of salt):

  • All Straw hats will have arc appropriate attire (doubtful)
  • PTS Zoro will no longer only have his jacket (maybe)
  • All Supernovas minus Bonnie playable (doubtful)
  • All East Blue villains including Hacchi playable (maybe)
  • Mr 2 and Mr 3 playable (good chance)
  • Doffy's execs minus Pica playable (doubtful)
  • Barto, Sai, Cavendish, Chinjou playable (likely)
  • Dream Log replaced with Adventure Mode from Hyrule Warriors (maybe)

I don't really think this is legit, but if so then they're really going all in on this game.

Still hope these Big Mom Pirates make it:
- Big Mom
- Pudding
- Katakuri
- Cracker
- Smoothie

Honestly I think it is fake as well what gives it away funnily is the arc appropriate attires. They've had 3 games to gradually do this but choose to do it all in one go for this, its honestly nothing but a wish list.

Yes, this is ultimately what debunks it, but it's the thing I want the most, lol.
