One Piece Odyssey had an ace up his sleeve: we will visit the Kingdom of Alabasta

How quiet he was! One Piece Odyssey has caught us off guard in its new images, in which leaves waford island, where we thought the entire game was going to be set, to travel to the very Kingdom of Alabasta. Apparently, the adventure developed by ILCA and Bandai Namco Entertainment hides a level based on Luffy’s memories (we cross our fingers that there are several) in which we will meet again with old acquaintances like Vivi and Bon Kureitwo of the fan favorites.

It will not be a review of the Arabasta arc as such, but we will have to choose a couple of members of the Straw Hats for “travel to the past“and visit the deserts that stole our hearts two years later of the events we all remember. We are promised”many changes and variations“on our return to Vivi’s realm, but for now we can only speculate what that means (and regret that it might mean not crossing paths). in combat with Crocodile).

We leave you with the first images of Alabasta in One Piece Odyssey, with two new creatures which, like the rest of the game, are designed by Eiichiro Oda, the author of One Piece. As a curiosity, it is the first time in the region that we see the mugiwaras with the clothes and features after the time skip. Will the long-awaited face-to-face between Vivi and Robin take place thanks to the video game?

A dream come true

with clear Reminiscent of Dragon Quest (big words, we know), and unlike the rest of the brand’s adaptations so far, One Piece Odyssey will not be a musou, but a JRPG of all life. In it we will explore the island of Waford (and seen what we have seen, several other kingdoms), discovering new allies (original characters such as Lim and Adio) and fighting against new enemies and dangers (such as leviathans and penguins) that as we said , have been designed by Eiichiro Oda himself.

odyssey bears in development more than five years and it will be full of details that will delight One Piece fans. In fights, for example, Sanji won’t be able to fight female charactersand when exploring the island that will act as a map, to put another, we can do different things depending on what mugiwara we are driving (cutting doors in the case of Zoro, entering small tunnels with Chopper, or using Luffy’s arms as a hook and vine if we opt for it).

Developed by ILCA, the creators of the Pokémon Pearl and Diamond remakesOne Piece Odyssey will arrive as we said on January 13, 2023and it will do so for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
