There’s a good chance that you already know a ton about the ONE PIECE universe, with the likes of One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 and One Piece: World Seeker having released in recent years. But there’s much more to explore in this world and it is with that in which One Piece Odyssey comes to the fore.
Promising to deliver one of the greatest adventure with Luffy and the Straw Hats, One Piece Odyssey is a new RPG with turned-based combat set in the ONE PIECE universe. It’ll come with an original story and new characters developed under the guiding hand of series creator Eiichiro Oda.
Odyssey has been revealed during a special ONE PIECE livestream, with the game coming as the original manga prepares to celebrate its 25th anniversary. When it does arrive on Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC, you can expect it to deliver an authentic and immersive new entry rooted in canon and sure to retain the humour and chemistry of the anime with Oda-Sensei’s involvement and starring the original Japanese VO actors.
It will transport players to the fantastical world of ONE PIECE and during their journey, the Straw Hats headed by Monkey D. Luffy are swallowed by a huge storm at sea and end up on a mysterious island full of nature amidst the storm, separated from each other, with the Thousand Sunny completely broken.
The crew set outs on a new adventurous journey filled with wonders of a raging nature, powerful enemies, and strange encounters with the island locals. Players will have to work together with Luffy and the members of his crew to set sail once again!
Adio, the original character of the game, and the monsters that inhabit the game world were designed with the cooperation of Eiichiro Oda, the author of ONE PIECE.
“We are happy to be joining the celebration of the 25th anniversary of ONE PIECE with the release of ONE PIECE ODYSSEY,” said Katsuaki Tsuzuki, Producer at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. “We have been teaming up with ILCA Inc. and have been working hard in collaboration with Eiichiro Oda to create a great adventure drama that touches the world of ONE PIECE in a game that we hope will surpass players expectations.”
