You’ll also encounter the newly announced Smoker and you can expect to see many other characters join the roster.

Our press release tells us that Burning Blood will have several feature that will add a level of strategy to the fighting, allowing you to create a team of three players and you can switch in and out in order to gain a tactical advantage. Or attempt to at least. Certain characters will be able to use special Logia moves for unique abilities, allowing you to dispose of your enemies quickly. Logia fruits will allow you to use Logia Guard, protecting you from attacks for a period of time. The game will also feature Devil Fruits – as in the original Manga – allowing you to execute the massive Special Attacks and/or Reinforced Special Attacks.
