Go On a Pirate Adventure With One Piece Odyssey Later This Year
Bandai Namco has announced that One Piece Odyssey is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC later this year. The game is a JRPG with turn-based combat and features an original story with the original Japanese voice cast adding to the authenticity.
One Piece Odyssey transports the Straw Hats to a mysterious new island where they embark on quests and fight powerful enemies and massive bosses in exciting turn-based battles. In the game, players take on the role of nine of their favorite pirates, playing as Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Franky, Sanji, Usopp, Nico Robin, TonyTony Chopper, and Brook. A new character revealed during the livestream, the cheerful and towering Adio, joins the Straw Hats in their latest adventure.
While this is an original story, series creator Eiichiro Oda helped guide its creation. That means, hopefully, the story and characters will feel just like the anime.
Katsuaki Tsuzuki, Producer at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc, had this to say:
“We are happy to be joining the celebration of the 25th anniversary of One Piece with the release of One Piece Odyssey. 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.”
One Piece Odyssey is interesting, to say the least. If you’re a big fan of the One Piece anime, it is certainly worth checking out. If you haven’t watched the unending series that is One Piece, hopefully, this game will still be a good JRPG.
