Meet Fleet Admiral Akainu, Debuting in Pockie Pirates Chapter 7

Powerful new character profiled ahead of latest expansion to popular One Piece MMO

NGames, a leading publisher of free-to-play online games, has today revealed more information about Akainu, a powerful new character set to be introduced to One Piece MMO, Pockie Pirates when the latest expansion, "Chapter 7", launches on March 27th, 2013 on the Game321.com portal.

Chapter 7 adds a host of gameplay features and refinements to Pockie Pirates' award-winning gameplay. Players will be able to dive for new Underwater Treasure, learn useful new cooking techniques to give crew members powerful buffs, and enjoy a much-anticipated optimised full-screen interface, which promises to immerse players in the Pockie Pirates experience like never before.

The free expansion also adds more iconic One Piece characters to the Pockie Pirates roster. High-ranking players visiting the All Blue Bar 2 will be able to recruit members from two new crews: Drake and Hawkins. Both sets of pirates pack a mean punch; especially their admirals, Kizaru and Akainu (respectively)– two formidable characters that are sure to make waves across the Grand Line.

Akainu was one of the three Admirals, an elite team who were crowned the World Government's“Greatest Military Powers” and were amongst the most powerful characters to ever feature in the One Piece anime series. With a dead-serious disposition and a grim, expressionless demeanour, Akainu is now the fleet admiral of the Marines, and an adamant believer in Absolute Justice against all criminals.

Publisher NGames has revealed that Akainu will be entering Pockie Pirates as a high-level SS rank Sniper with impressive physical attack, magic defense, and speed attributes. The most powerful offensive character in the game, his active skill is Meteor Volcano, a devastating attack that can deal 200% physical damage to all enemies and reduce his target's physical and magic attack by 50% for two turns.

Admirals are particularly harsh on pirates when handing out Absolute Justice, so players would be well advised to avoid Akainu at all costs - unless they can convince him to join their crew.

Pockie Pirates is a licensed One Piece MMO that faithfully recreates the One Piece anime series. Players take on the role of a sea-faring captain sailing the famous Grand Line trail with their friends, seeking epic adventure and treasures as they quest to become the King of Pirates.


Chapter 7 is coming to Pockie Pirates on March 27th, 2013, adding new treasures, recipes, characters, and a number of improvements to the way players trade and interact with towns across the Grand Line.
