A new card game for One Piece, also planned in France
Released for the first time in 1997 in Japan, the manga One Piece celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. A twenty-fifth candle that seems to be accompanied by many projects: evidenced by the announcement of a new One Piece card game, in the vein of a Yu-Gi-Oh. On Youtube it is the subsidiary Carddass from Bandai which publishes a video (available above) which announces the publication of a new card game dedicated to the universe of Luffy. One Piece Card Game, or OPCG, is made in partnership with Shueisha (the publisher of the magazine that publishes One Piece chapters) and Tohei Animation. A release date has even been communicated: it is expected in July in Japan, and later in the year in the rest of the world.
Despite this, it is difficult to retrieve details about the game and how it will play. Nevertheless, it would seem that the artworks of the cards come from the manga boards, and that there would be four starting decks referring to One Piece : Luffy and his crew, the members of the terrible generation, the seven corsair captains (which should include more than seven characters) and finally the crew of Kaido. Then the deck can grow with cards from the set Romance Dawn : this is the name of the first narrative arc of the story.
You fell into my trap Luffy!
Despite the little information available about him, this One Piece Card Game still seems to be similar to Yu-Gi-Oh. This is evidenced by the design of the cards (with the power at the top right?) and their layout since at the same time, the official page indicated that an educational application for learning to play will be released in June. Moreover, it is Eiichiro Oda himself who borrows the name of Yu-Gi-Oh to describe the card game:
I don’t know much about card games but it’s something like Yu-Gi-Oh, isn’t it? (…) I understood that they (Shueisha) were going to use illustrations from the original work and publish it worldwide. Let’s go One Piece Card Game, I can’t wait!
