One Piece: Pirate Warriors and Thundercats dated

Namco Bandai has set release dates for its upcoming One Piece: Pirate Warriors and Thundercats games, both scheduled for fall.

Pirate Warriors puts players in the role of Luffy and his band of pirates as they team up with the Straw Hat crew to defeat enemies in online and local co-op modes. Tecmo Koei is developing the game, which hits the PlayStation Network on September 25 and marks the 15th anniversary of Eiichiro Oda's popular manga and anime franchise.

A Thundercats game for DS is coming the same day. The side-scrolling adventure is based on the new animated television series.
