A world that has evolved in two years

A trailer that will undoubtedly tickle the nostalgic fiber of many manga fans who would like to relive in an open world video game the many journeys experienced by the Straw Hat crew. However, if they will dive back into the memories of Luffy’s nakamas, they will not relive past events but new adventures:

But the crew has grown and changed over the two years of adventures, and while the world created from their memories seems identical at first glance, the events and adventures that take place there are a whole new story. -Bandai Namco

Enough to give hope to all types of players: neophytes will be able to cling to an original story allowing them to better immerse themselves in the universe, while One Piece enthusiasts will be able to find their favorite narrative arcs from a totally different way. Landing scheduled for January 13, 2023 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox Series and Xbox One.
