The bestiary of One Piece Odyssey revealed through new visuals

Bandai Namco has just shared new previews of this RPG in the universe of Luffy and company.

In 2021, One Piece once again broke records, particularly in exceeding sales of Dragon Ball in France. Whether through manga, anime, the big screen (with an ultra-awaited return to the cinema) or gaming, the universe of the pirate Luffy promises to be very present this year.

A crew stranded on a dangerous island

Last month, publisher Bandai Namco surprised all fans by unveiling the first images of One Piece Odyssey, an RPG adapted from the manga by Eiichiro Oda. Currently in development, the title should take the form of a Japanese role-playing game with graphics reminiscent of the anime. In this new adventure, the man in the straw hat and his companions are stranded on an island and will have to find a way to extricate themselves from this situation. Many dangers await the Straw Hat crew, but the game still remains very mysterious.

One thing is certain, it is indeed in 2022 that the universe One Room will return to consoles and PC, three years later World Seeker. To heighten the tension, Bandai Namco has unveiled new images of the game in recent hours. If we are to believe these new visuals, Luffy and his friends will have to fight against both land and sea enemies, but also from strange entities. Other photos also suggest the presence of puzzles.

Modeling more than faithful to the work of Eiichiro Oda

The visuals confirm the presence of a colorful and strange bestiary, in the tone of the series, since we can see a species of gorilla, a derivative of the lion or even a huge beetle. As a reminder, the game is supported by the ILCA studio, to whom we owe recent remakes of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, and can count on turn-based combat. While waiting for a better preview, such as a gameplay video, fans will no doubt be reassured to know that the game seems to benefit from nice graphics and that the modeling of the different protagonists is as faithful as possible to the original manga. For the time being, One Piece Odyssey is expected by the end of 2022 on most media on the market, namely PC, PS4, PS5 and Xbox Series. Despite an obvious link to Japanese titles, the Nintendo Switch is not invited to the party for the moment.
