One Piece Romance Dawn Also Covers Impel Dawn Arc

By Spencer . November 1, 2012 . 3:30pm

imageOne Piece Romance Dawn: Adventure at Daybreak covers a lot more of One Piece than the title suggests. Jump reports the Impel Down arc will also be in the PSP role playing game. In this storyline Luffy and crew break into Impel Down, an underwater prison, to rescue Ace. Jinbe, Buggy, Ivankov, and Bon Kurei will be in the game as NPCs.


In battle, you can use the Grand Chain move in One Piece Romance Dawn to assault enemies with one special technique after another. Namco Bandai also said the Thriller Bark arc is also in One Piece Romance Dawn.

    So it essentially covers the entire manga until the timeskip? This could be one long game. The PSP’s last big release in Japan… aside from God Eater 2, I guess.

    Unless I’m missing something else.

      ¬†From the looks of it, I would say it does; like the One Piece Pirate Warriors game, but more complete (that game doesn’t have Thriller Bark and Skypiea story arks). I’m looking forward to this game.

  • Please port this to Vita in the US. At least a downloadable title.

  • That’s pretty awesome, but Impel Down with the whole Straw Hat crew? Not sure if I like that. The special thing about that arc was that Luffy had to team up with his old enemies and Ivankov and Jinbei.

    • I think whoever wrote this just isnt aware of how that Arc went down

      Yeah I cant see how this would go if it was Luffy and crew, perhaps the article writer meant Luffy goes in (maybe with Boa’s help, is she in the game?).¬†
      Oh well ACE!!!!! So much love.

    I think it’s safe to say that this will cover the entire pre-timeskip series. (Probably not EVERY arc, it will skip some, but it will start at chapter 1 and end with Ace’s death.)

      Actually , in one of the trailers you can see Twin Cape, Wisheky Peak and Little Garden on the map, so I’m willing to bet we get everything this time. Maybe even Gaimon and Jaya *___*

    I Hope it goes into the timeskip aswell, This games release date times nicely with the end of the first timeskip arc shown in the anime.

    Since the only reason it wasn’t included in pirate warriors is because they weren’t even halfway through the arc there shouldn’t be any reason not to include it now.

    i dont want back to impel dawn because ACE DEAD in the end T_T
