After multiple delays we finally have some details to drop, read on...
Fans might be disappointed to see a delay in the latest One Piece video game from Bandai Namco but the silver lining to the bad news is that you can still get excited about One Piece Odyssey. In case you have missed out on the original announcement, One Piece Odyssey was first announced on March 28, 2022, by developer ILCA and publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment. The game follows the Straw Hats stranded on the mysterious island called Waford and forced to explore in the quest to understand what's really happening. So here's everything we know about the upcoming JRPG.
Rejoice! The One Piece Odyssey release date is January 12, 2023, for PC and January 12, 2023, for Console players. Why the separate dates, you ask? Honestly, we have no idea, but we are just happy to get a release date after so many delays, finally.
One Piece Odyssey will be released for PC via Steam, PS5, PS4, and Xbox Series X but not Xbox One.
It's a mix of puzzles and combat. There are different skills and characters that can level up to get stronger, just as it works in a traditional JRPG game. However, Bandai Namco had brought in a twist, as "the Dramatic Scene system" where anything can happen, and you can be met with unexpected scenarios; for example, Usopp can get attacked by an enemy and might need rescuing.
Nope, the game does not have a multiplayer mode. You can see clearly in the information released by Bandai Namco that the game is to be played by one person.
The game features the cast majority of the straw Hat Pirates crew as playable characters. The list includes Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Robin, Chopper, Franky, and Brook. It's important to note that the characters are not completely based on the current time in the manga and anime, as the game is set way before the events in the same. Each of these characters has their own set of specific abilities in combat as well as outside of combat. For example, Zoro can cut down barriers while Luffy can actually slingshot. The game also features two fresh characters, the humans Adio and Lim. Information about Adio is Scarce; however, it is known that Lim will have a major role to play on the island.
There are many trailers, but the most notable one is the one that indicates that the game will see the Straw Hats going back to the past. Also, check out the system trailer featured on their website.
