One Piece Odyssey is a new JRPG coming in 2022 to PlayStation 4, Xbox, and PC.
The official One Piece YouTube channel revealed the game in a live stream with Bandai Namco confirmed to be publishing the game in the west.
One Piece Odyssey’s producer Katsuaki Tsuzuki has promised “an epic drama adventure which both One Piece fans and JRPG fans can experience and enjoy.”
He added: “One Piece RPG experiences are scattered throughout the game such as the story woven by Straw Hats, the dungeon experience, and various quests.”
Eiichiro Oda, author of the One Piece manga, designed the characters and monsters in Odyssey, and Bandai Namco has confirmed several playable characters including Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Chopper, Robin, Frankie, and Brook.
A blog post on the publisher’s website also offers a story synopsis: “During their voyage, the Straw Hats, led by Monkey D. Luffy are swallowed by a huge storm at sea. They end up on a mysterious island full of nature amidst the storm and become separated from each other.
“The crew set outs on a new adventurous journey filled with wonders of a raging nature, powerful enemies, and strange encounters with island locals.”
Motoi Sakuraba, a composer who worked on both the Dark Souls and Tales series, is also confirmed to have written the music for Odyssey.
The news came as part of a One Piece news update, which also spoke more about Netflix’s live-action adaptation of One Piece.
