One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 PS Vita vs. Switch (Portable) Comparison

One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 is available now for the Nintendo Switch. It might be an old game but the Switch version comes packed in with all the post-launch DLC and labeled as the Definitive version. Before the Switch release of the game, it was only possible to play the game on a portable with the PS Vita. This has changed now with the release of the Nintendo Switch verison.

If you are curious to see how the two versions stack against each other, you can check the comparison images below. (Top = PS Vita, Bottom = Nintendo Switch)

One Piece Pirate Warriors 3: Deluxe Edition for the Nintendo Switch ends up being closer to the PS4 release than the PS Vita or PS3 version. The character models, shadows, ground textures and frame rate are all a massive improvement over the PS Vita version. Even though the Vita version was impressive on its own, Switch has made it the ideal portable version of the game now.

Visually, the game doesn’t appear to be aged as well as One Piece Ultimate Red. Another reason the visuals seem to look rather lackluster is the abundance of NPCs on screen. Since it plays like a musou game, which basically feature a large amount of enemies, more emphasis is placed on the action than the visuals.
