One Piece Odyssey is the newest installment in the One Piece franchise, and it will be released later this year for PS4 and PS5. The JRPG will have an unique tale and completely new characters designed by Eiichiro Oda. The first of these individuals was revealed in the first trailer for the Straw Hats’ new quest.
The “cheerful” Adio, who is taller than most of the Straw Hats, is a new character in the trailer. He resides on the enigmatic new island where the pirates are stuck after their ship is sunk during a storm. Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Franky, Sanji, Usopp, Nico Robin, TonyTony Chopper, and Brook are among the nine playable characters in the crew. In turn-based fights, they’ll have to overcome weird monsters and “giant” bosses. There will be dungeons to explore, side quests to do, and other activities such as puzzles to solve outside of the campaign; all of these will be revealed to players at a later date.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of One Piece, and ILCA Inc. has been working with Eiichiro Oda to create a game that is true to the franchise’s canon. When One Piece Odyssey is published later in 2022 on PS5 and PS4, the characters will be spoken by the original Japanese voice actors, and the game’s producer Katsuaki Tsuzuki thinks they will “surpass gamers’ expectations.”
