Namco Bandai have released the first trailer for their upcoming PSP RPG, One Piece Romance Dawn: Adventure at Daybreak. Before he began working on One Piece, Eiichiro Oda drew Romance Dawn, which featured Luffy along with his grandfather and Shanks, and other elements that would be fleshed out in the One Piece series. You can watch the trailer below:



One Piece Romance Dawn: Adventure at Daybreak is scheduled for release this winter in Japan.

    ……. I thought Luffy always kicking butt everyday there?^_^

      apart from times when he almost got killed and friends saved his life several times

    It’s a nice idea, but the Romance Dawn “arc” didn’t last very long. I wonder how they’ll flesh it out into a full game…

  • Tales_of_Master

    I thought that it was pretty obvious this was based on the actual One Piece manga despite being named “Romance Dawn”, which is a pretty cool name. A One Piece RPG could be either extremely EPIC, or extremely boring. Hopefully NB will be able to pull this one off, and maybe…just maybe localize it if the PS3 game did well enough. In any case I think this is an import for me :)

      Hopefully if it doesn’t get a na release that there is an eu one.

      Then at least it will be in english.

    I’m intrigued and hoping for a good one, but to date I’m not sure how the gameplay will flow.

    Hoping for more interesting details to pump me up to the 2nd Hype Gear.

  • Everybody seems to be overlooking that the very first chapter and the first volume of the manga were also named “Romance Dawn”…

  • Pipiskin99

    well it’s psp, i was expecting this genericness and boringness vibe from the trailer, they’d better have gone with 2D sprites and backgrounds for this one.
    plus from the name of it i guess they touch only the beginning of manga so not as interesting as what OP has to offer later. even as a diehard OP fan i guess i can skip this one.

    They should port that Bleach PS2 RPG to PSP and then make a Bastard!! RPG

    so theres a one piece on ps3, and now on psp. so following this trend, theres a huge chance a vita game is in the works :D
