One of the most beloved anime in history is One Piece and fans show their affection in various ways, either by performing cosplays, clothes and even illustrations. Thus, a fan made an illustration and gave it a special touch by drawing the protagonists in a style pixel art.

The illustration reminded us of classic RPG games like those of Dragon Quest, or the first games of Pokémon for GameBoy, which makes us imagine what a video game of One Piece in its first versions and that without a doubt we would buy it.

What character would you choose?

Through Reddit, user Lorenz 15 shared a series of images of One Piece as a pixel game, in which it shows us the first part of the game and it is the option to choose our favorite character to give way to adventures full of pirates.

Among them we can see Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Chopper, Robin, Franky, Brook and Jinbe, so you could even play with each and every one of them, in order to explore the different paths they have had. Mugiwara or being a part of how Zoro met Luffy.
