Announcement of One Piece Odyssey – JRPG about the adventures of Luffy and his team on a mysterious island

One Piece Odyssey is being developed by Bandai Namco

Fans of One Piece will definitely not be deprived of content in the coming years – a  Netflix series is being prepared, and now a new product has been announced. The JRPG One Piece Odyssey is being developed by Bandai Namco and Japanese studio ILCA, which released Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

In  One Piece Odyssey, the Straw Hat Pirates are caught in a violent storm and end up on a mysterious island. During a storm, the team is thrown to different places, so first they have to find each other. The location is dotted with various kinds of dungeons and ruins, and they are inhabited by unprecedented creatures. In addition to the protagonist Luffy, gamers can take control of Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Robin, Franky, and Brook.

According to the developers, the project has been in development for several years to recreate the world of the manga and its inherent spirit of adventure. The creator of One Piece Eiichiro Oda also had a hand in the game – he came up with new characters and monsters. 

The music is handled by Motoi Sakuraba, who composed compositions for the Dark Souls and the Tales series

“Today’s One Piece Odyssey is probably the first project [in the One Piece game series] that has been so carefully developed for a long time, ” said JRPG producer Katsuaki Tsuzuki.

One Piece Odyssey will release on PC, PS4, PS5 and Xbox Series sometime in 2022.
