One Piece Odyssey charts a course for January 2023
The Straw Hat Pirates set out for a brand new journey
Bandai Namco Leisure has locked in a launch date for One Piece Odyssey. The RPG primarily based on the large manga collection will set sail on January 13, 2023.
Beforehand, One Piece Odyssey was going to set sail someday this yr. At the moment on the Tokyo Recreation Present 2022, Bandai Namco moved that concentrate on only a hair into the brand new yr.
One Piece Odyssey producer Katsuaki Tsuzuki explains in a new video message that whereas the group initially focused this yr, launching in January provides them extra time in manufacturing and brushing up the standard of the RPG.
At the moment’s launch date announcement trailer lays out the story of the brand new journey. The Straw Hat crew heads to new shores, the place they encounter a mysterious new character and get snarled in a bit greater than they may have bargained for. This new journey will contact on “traditional recollections” of the Straw Hat Pirates as effectively.
A pirate RPG
Whereas the look of One Piece Odyssey undoubtedly looks like it’s locked in, the opposite interesting issue is that that is an RPG. Somewhat than extra action-oriented video games which have rolled out for different manga variations, One Piece Odyssey is a role-playing recreation.
Hopefully we’ll get to see extra of the battle system forward of launch, as we’ve solely seen a number of snippets up up to now. However the UI type, in addition to the final look of the sport, all appear actually nice.
Plus, for the heavy One Piece followers on the market, Odyssey is getting a tie-in statue that appears rad.
One Piece Odyssey units off for PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox Collection X|S, and PC through Steam on January 13, 2023.
