One Piece Odyssey is an RPG project to commemorate the One Piece brand’s 25th anniversary. This JRPG game will allow players to experience quests and dungeons with the new Dramatic scene system, which will pitch them against unexpected and random scenarios. The game will also feature the members of the Straw Hat crew as playable characters, including Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Chopper, Robin, Franky, and Brook. The story will dive back into past events with a nostalgic but fresh original storyline for players to enjoy. 

One Piece Odyssey tests the crew’s friendship 

In ONE PIECE ODYSSEY, players will embark on an adventure with Luffy and the Straw Hat Crew as they are trying to regain their lost powers. To do so they will visit “Memoria”, a world built from the memories of their previous encounters, leading them to go back to important locations in their history such as Alabasta and Water Seven. 

In this adventure, you will experience a new story of the Straw Hats, with a focus on Usopp and Robin. This quest will lead them to see familiar places like the Gallery-La Company or faces like Franky’s gang, Iceburg, Aokiji and some of the CP9 members like Lucci and Kaku. But while places and situations can look and feel familiar, nothing is as it exactly was in these memories and players will see some differences with the story they know and love.
