During this past week’s Summer Game Fest, we got a brand new look at One Piece Odyssey. This is a JRPG based on the critically acclaimed manga and anime, One Piece. Although based on one of the longest-running properties in the world, this one will contain an original story, crafted by the very creator of One Piece, Eiichiro Oda. Alongside this freshly prepared storyline, we will also see original characters designed by Oda. One Piece Odyssey is coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam.
Below you will be able to see more gameplay involving some of the other Straw Hats, alongside more story footage.
During Summer Game Fest we were treated to footage of the game. Showcasing the Straw Hats’ on their ship and getting launched towards the sky. As they start falling they have to dodge various obstacles.
