Bandai Namco has just unveiled six minutes of new gameplay for one, if not THE, best manga arc. On the program, nostalgia, cult characters and game mechanics.
The communication campaign around One Piece Odyssey intensifies. Still scheduled for January 13, 2023 on PS5, Xbox Series, PC and PS4, the RPG returns with a new trailer. In the spotlight once again, the one that is considered by many fans to be one of the best arcs in the manga.
From One Piece Odyssey gameplay to Water Seven
Luffy and his gang will return to Water Seven next year. Bandai Namco and ILCA recently revealed a feature allowing the Straw Hat Crew to relive their iconic adventures in One Piece Odyssey. Two weeks ago, the Japanese publisher confirmed what many were hoping for: the manga’s most popular arc can be discovered in a new light. And it is precisely the theater of the battle between Lucci and Luffy which is illustrated today in video with six minutes of gameplay. The opportunity to remember that if the outstanding figures of the arc like the members of CP9 or the boss of Galley-La Company will be present, everything will not take place with the accuracy as in the memories of the pirates.
A roundabout way to please the most nostalgic, while bringing a breath of fresh air to adaptations of the manga. One Piece Odyssey will indeed be a pure RPG that will offer new gameplay mechanics like Link Techniques. It will therefore allow the use of combined overpowered attacks that can be triggered by three characters at the same time. It will however be necessary to complete specific quests beforehand, all asking to repair memories in the famous world of memoria. The skills of all the pirates can also be increased using the power of the cubes. This new gameplay video only shows a brief preview of the various gameplay elements that await us on the final release. Other surprises are expected at the launch of One Piece Odyssey, if Bandai Namco does not decide to reveal them all by then.
