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

There's nothing like dominating the seas in style. One Piece inspired MMO, Pockie Pirates is packed with popular anime characters, all of them playable and recruitable as players look to build the perfect crew.

Revealed today, the brand new Inherit system allows players to become the King of Pirates as the characters they cherish the most. Using Inherit, players can now transfer one crew member's skills, level, and attributes to another.

The anticipated time saving system takes the strain out of retraining of a new crew. Now, players can simply take advantage of the “Free Inherit” option to move 70% of the level and 50% of attribute growth from one crew member to another of their choice.

To celebrate the new freedom afforded to players, NGames has also introduced 5 new characters for the sea-faring MMO. Sailing in on the Straw hats, the Five Leading Crew's members boast incredible attributes and ultra-powers - powerful enough to turn the world of One-Piece upside down.

Navigator of the Straw Hats, Nami can use her Thunder Rod to do incredible magic damage to all enemy targets.

The great sword master Zoro is hits single targets for massive damage and is capable of doing more damage after attacked.

Sanji, the loyal cook of the Straw Hats, is preparing for battle with his feet of fury and is a powerful combo attacker.

Usopp, the king of snipers can use his Firebird Star skill to take out an enemy in a single devastating blow.

Funny guy Brook is an excellent team attacker, able to put the enemy to sleep or deal damage to all of them.


Players can join the race to become the King of the Pirates for free today by joining Pockie Pirates on Game321:
