[Update]: One Piece Odyssey has now been unleashed, and judging by the Steam reviews, it seems to be quite solid!

After a whole bunch of games focused on fast-paced action, it looks like Bandai Namco and ILCA will be taking the freshly announced One Piece Odyssey in a bit of a different direction. Instead of some sort of fighting game or hack & slash, One Piece Odyssey will be an expansive turn-based RPG. Can't say I could've predicted that one!

Not only that, but One Piece Odyssey will also be getting an original storyline by the series' author Eiichiro Oda, along with an assortment of unique new characters and monsters to complement the usual bunch. A good thing too, because this way One Piece Odyssey should hopefully be approachable to even those that have no idea what the series is all about.

Speaking of which, you can get a bit of a sneak peek at what One Piece Odyssey is like through the recently posted trailer. Have a gander:

No exact release date has been given just yet, but One Piece Odyssey will be landing onto PC, PlayStation and Xbox at some point in 2022. Once we get an actual date, I'll make sure to let you know.

Until then, you can read a few more tidbits of information about One Piece Odyssey and its story over at the official website. Enjoy!
