Yesterday the Japanese branch of Bandai Namco Games uploaded a video of Shanks gameplay from One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 to their channel, and it is awesome.

The trailer which only runs for about half a minute shows off what it’ll be like fighting through hordes of marines as the one and only Red Haired Shanks of the Red Hair Pirates. This is a pretty big deal, since it’s the first time in the series we’ll have had the opportunity to play as him, and while this trailer isn’t very long it does give us a nice taste of what we can expect.

Given his reputation in the series as one of the world’s strongest pirates known as the yonko and also as the man who saved Luffy and encouraged him to become a pirate, there’s a lot to expect. From what I’ve seen so far though, it looks like I’ll have a great time putting down fodder as one of my favorite characters in the series.

Remember that time he did the thing? I should mention that link probably contains spoilers, but let’s be honest, that was quite a while ago. If you’re interested in this game, you’ve probably read or watched that far into the story.

Regardless, it’s pretty cool and I can’t wait to get my hands on the game later this year when it hits North America. Are you excited to play Shanks?
