Bandai Namco revealed battle system details and screenshots for upcoming anime JRPG One Piece Odyssey. The new game features a turn-based combat system, allowing players to take individual control of the Straw Hat Pirates in action. Gameplay is separated into two categories: Adventure and Battle. As implied, Adventure allows players to explore the island and use unique traversal abilities. These traversal abilities include Luffy’s Gum-Gum Fruit powers and Franky’s machinery skills.
In Battle, the Straw Hat Pirates play an active role in combat unique to One Piece. By selecting the appropriate attack range at the beginning of a battle, the party has an advantage. Dramatic scenes may occur in battle, leading to big bonuses. Under the right conditions, the Straw Hats may unleash powerful combination attacks called Bond Arts.
New characters Lim and Adio were introduced, each playing an important role in the upcoming JRPG. Lim is a mysterious girl who lives on the island and hates pirates. On the other hand, Adio is a castaway on the island and acts as a guide for the Straw Hats.
One Piece Odyssey releases later this year for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. Lastly, check out even more screenshots from the official Japanese website below:
