It's almost that time again, the annual Arlong Park Character Tournament. And this year, it's going to be even bigger, better, and other words that start with "b"!
If you were here last year, you know the basics already and are pretty much good to go. If you're new, prepare for a ride as your favorite One Piece characters (and some you probably don't recognize at all) duke it out in a fan community series of 1 on 1 battles of popularity!
I know you're all chomping at the bit to start the nomination process and get your favorites into the game.
Well, sorry, we're changing things up, so you don't get to.
Don't worry, you'll like these changes.
This year, in order to try and be inclusive to as many of Oda's wonderful characters as possible, we're doing our best to include darn near everyone! Rather than having a nomination process, we're instead hosting a prodigious preliminary round with a whopping 320 candidates!
So on top of the much expanded starting roster, what else is new?
**WHEN IT STARTS
There will be other twists, turns, surprises and bonus rounds like the Omake round we just had, of course, but you'll find out about those as we go along…********
