  Pockie Pirates - Chapter 5: The Straw Hats Released
  Share on Twitter Share on Facebook RSS

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

NGames, a leading online publisher, has launched Chapter 5: The Straws, the latest free expansion for One Piece browser-based adventure, Pockie Pirates.

Chapter 5 adds the much anticipated second floor to the All Blue Bar, where players can tackle new adventures in a bid to recruit powerful One Piece crew members to join their ships. All Blue crew members are the most potent in the game, each coming with their own unique special attacks and crew boosting attributes.

The newly opened second floor - All Blue Bar II - gives captains capable of overcoming the tough new challenges the chance to recruit such well known One Piece characters as Sanji, Zoro, Brook, Nami, and Usopp to their ships.

Costing 4,800 fame points each, the newest set of All Blue characters may not be cheap additions, but they will be points well spent for any player looking to bolster their crew capabilities.

Luckily, NGames is celebrating the launch of Chapter 5 by giving players 10 free chances per day to complete the All Blue adventures, opening up the opportunity to earn more in-game fame than ever before.

NGames has also launched I CARD YOU, an exclusive Facebook Event to celebrate the launch of Chapter 5: The Straw Hat. Open until November 15th, I CARD YOU challenges players to get creative and design their best Pockie Pirates or One Piece post card.

NGames will choose 20 winners after the event has closed, rewarding the creators of the best post cards with bags of in-game gold, silver, warship upgrades and fame points. The overall winner will also have their post card professionally made and sent to them.

Tip: Bonus points are on offer for those who add a custom Pockie Pirates or One Piece themed stamp to their post card. Be authentic, and be creative.


Chapter 5: The Straw Hats is available now. Players can join the race to become the King of the Pirates for free today by joining Pockie Pirates on Game321:
