7 minutes of gameplay for One Piece Odyssey
One Piece Odyssey will pull the nostalgic string. Original story obliges, ILCA and Bandai Namco have found the parade to let the fans dive back into the cult arcs of the manga, but with JRPG sauce. Thanks to the powers of a character invented from scratch, Luffy and his companions will return to the significant places of their journey like Alabasta. It is precisely the native land of Vivi which is at the heart of the new gameplay video of the game.
Thanks to the world of memories, the Straw Hat crew will be able to relive some of their adventures, find cult characters from the manga, all in a new light. The gameplay video does not specify the contours of this scenario, but rather presents the different mechanics specific to the JRPG. NPCs who will undoubtedly give a plethora of side quests, exploration with playable characters on the fly to progress or even turn-based combat are therefore illustrated. As a reminder, One Piece Odyssey is expected for January 13, 2023 on PS5, Xbox SeriesPC and PS4.
