This week has been absolutely insane One piece fans. The manga is on hiatus for a month, we learned that the final saga in the series will start next month and that there will be a whole new set of songs supporting the upcoming movie One piece red. And on top of all that, an extended trailer for this year’s new releases One piece jrpg, One Piece Odyssey, was unveiled at the Summer Game Fest. In short, it’s a particularly exciting time to be one One piece Fan.
One Piece Odyssey is far from the first adventure game franchise in the long-running series. There is world seeker, Unlimited world red, and basically as many more as you’d expect from a popular shounen that’s been around for 25 years. but One Piece Odyssey will be the first turn-based role-playing game in the history of the series. In addition, the game’s story and the designs of the new characters come from mangaka Eiichiro Oda himself. All of this got me really excited.
Gameplay and Characters
One of One pieceThe greatest strengths of are the popular characters. Each character in One piece has its own passionate, dedicated sub-fandom. Odyssey will specifically focus on the Straw Hats – there’s no Trafalgar Law or carrot traveling along for the ride. And although you can play as anyone from the Straw Hat Crew, Odyssey represents the Straw Hats as they were before Whole Cake Island. So we have Luffy, Nami, Zoro, Sanji, Usopp, Chopper, Robin, Franky and Brook. No Jinbe. (And no Yamato?? Is Yamato joining the crew? Keep your secrets manga readers!) This makes me very, very sad. However, the new story trailer does a great job of getting me excited about playing the Straw Hats for what they are. The character intros remind me of the awesome opening sequence One Piece Movie Gold.
Despite the fishman-shaped hole in my heart (I named my cat Jinbe, damn it), the turn-based RPG format will take advantage of your party and make the most of the wide range of playable characters. As it appears One Piece Odyssey‘s brand on the turn-based JRPG will take on franchises such as dragon quest and final fantasy. In addition to group-based combat, there is adventure and puzzle-solving. In addition, it looks like certain characters are needed to handle certain situations previously explored in games like Unlimited world red.
release date and platforms
There is no concrete release date yet, but we know One Piece Odyssey coming 2022. Since it’s June and we don’t even have a month, I’d put my money on a November or December release. The game will be released on PS4, PS5, XBox Series X/S and Steam. No switch. Oh!
