One Piece Odyssey is a new JRPG coming in 2022 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
One Piece’s official YouTube channel revealed the game in a live stream, with Bandai Namco confirming it would release the game in the west.
One Piece Odyssey producer Katsuaki Tsuzuki has promised “an epic drama-adventure for both One Piece fans and JRPG fans to experience and enjoy.”
He added, “One Piece RPG experiences are spread throughout the game, like the story weaved by Straw Hats, the dungeon experience, and various quests.”
One Piece manga author Eiichiro Oda designed the characters and monsters in Odyssey, and Bandai Namco has confirmed several playable characters, including Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Chopper, Robin, Frankie, and Brook.
A blog post on the publisher’s website also provides a synopsis of the story: “During their voyage, the Straw Hats, led by Monkey D. Luffy, are swallowed up by a massive storm at sea. They end up in the midst of the storm on a mysterious island full of nature and become separated from each other.

“The crew embarks on a new adventure filled with wonders of wild nature, powerful enemies and strange encounters with islanders.”
Motoi Sakuraba, a composer who worked on both the Dark Souls and Tales series, is said to have written the music for Odyssey.
The news came as part of a One Piece News update that also talked more about Netflix’s live-action adaptation of One Piece.
