Another V-Jump reveal via Gematsu has brought us new for the third DLC character for One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4. Vinsmoke Judge will be arriving to the game via “Character Pack #1,” which will launch this summer, and includes previously announced characters Charlotte Smoothie and Charlotte Cracker along with our new arrival. Vinsmoke Judge will be able to use his main spear, enabling long-ranged attacks along with his signature electrifying abilities.

A free update will launch this Summer for My Hero One’s Justice 2 bringing Photo Mode to the game, according to a V-Jump reveal. Additional details were translated by Gematsu:

In Photo Mode, you can freely select the stage and up to four characters to take photographs in either “Portrait Mode” (a group photograph) or “Action Scene Mode” (battle photographs). Customized characters can also be used. The scenery, emblems, and mottos you obtained playing the game can be used as stamps. There are a total of 15 frames and 14 filters.
