A new One Piece Odyssey trailer was shared online today, providing a better look at the gameplay systems that will fuel the next adventure for Straw Hats that launches next month worldwide on PC and consoles.
The new trailer, which can be viewed below, is an 11-minute trailer that goes beyond combat and exploration mechanics, item crafting, equipment system, and much more. With all of these systems in place, One Piece Odyssey is a complete JRPG experience that even those who aren’t in the works of Eiichiro Oda can enjoy as much.
- Master the powers of each Straw Hat member in battles that never play the same way twice. Scramble zones add a new dimension to combat, while dramatic cutscenes liven up encounters with unexpected events.
- Field actions give each straw hat a role while exploring. Cut through rails with Zorro or build bridges with Franky.
- Create fighting items like Usopp’s Trick Balls or dress up your party with Sanji’s delicious dishes to gain the edge in challenging encounters.
- Enhance your characters the way you want with the flexible equipment system that allows the player to customize and improve equipment as they see fit.
One Piece Odyssey will launch on January 12th on PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S, with a playable demo released a few days earlier. Learn more about the upcoming game by checking out Kai’s preview.
While One Piece Odyssey will be an original tale for Luffy and the Straw Hat Crew, expect to spend plenty of time exploring and revisiting past memories to help restore their former abilities. In order to repair the memories of the shattered Hysteria, players will revisit past adventures and places throughout their time in Wafford and Memoria. Water 7 and Alabasta are just two local locations that were revealed ahead of time but expect to revisit a wide range of locations. Unfortunately, Wano appears to be off limits on what’s to come in One Piece Odyssey despite the beginning and end during the upcoming JRPG’s entire development cycle.
