Take A Look At The Multiplayer Action Of One Piece: Unlimited World Red

By Ishaan . May 27, 2013 . 9:30am

As reported last week, One Piece: Unlimited World Red is headed to the Nintendo 3DS in Japan, and seems to take a few cues from hunting action games like Monster Hunter, with support for 4-player co-op and battles against large enemies. Namco have now released a trailer for the game. Watch it below:



One Piece: Unlimited World Red doesn’t have a release date yet. The game is being developed by Ganbarion, the developers of the One Piece: Unlimited Cruise games and of Pandora’s Tower.

    Thats a pretty sweet logo

    • Agreed it does look pretty awesome.

    • d19xx

      For a moment I thought it said “Freedom Unite” :D

      • Well… it is a MH-clone of sorts… xD

      • ronin4life

        I thought Soul Sacrifice’s logo was pandering… I was wrong. That was similar, but *this* Is just blatant…

    Wow, I only just started reading One Piece (just finished Marineford arc) but this looks… quite good. Quite good indeed. I daresay– I’m hyped! I almost question if this is really for N3DS.

    Also, ahhhhhhh they’re beating up poor Valoo! He’s only angry because Link was tugging on his tail! He’s really a nice guy Luffy!

  • Rei

    Damn… That looks pretty awesome. Region lock..Oh, the irony!

  • YoshEE

    Not bad especially the graphic and gameplay

  • Shadowman

    This should get localize.

  • The funny thing is that this is probably going to outsell a lot of the Monster Hunter clones, despite One Piece never having been a hunting action game in the past.

    • That is what brand recognition gets you though. lol And not that anything is wrong with it outselling the clones. Right?

      • No, nothing wrong at all. It’s just really funny how many people try to imitate Monster Hunter’s success, but so far Namco seem to be having the best luck. Even though it’s nowhere near MH-level sales, God Eater is #2 in the hunting action genre. One Piece could very well be #3.

        • Mmm… yah I guess it is kind of funny. WIth this game though it has the name “One Piece” and “Unlimited World” tied to it so of course it will sell well. As for God Eater’s success well… it came out in a time when there were far less saturation of clones in the market didn’t it? So I guess this might explain why the result is such?

          • Yup, God Eater was a success thanks to timing. They put it out on the same platform that MH was one, while people were waiting for a new Monster Hunter game. It filled that gap.

            That’s why no other hunting game is selling those big numbers. At this point, the genre really is starting to get oversaturated.

          • Figures when you see something successful it makes sense to copy it, that is how evoluation and adaption works. And yah I mean don’t get me wrong the clones aren’t usually terrible, and I enjoyed Odyssey and would likely enjoy GE and this looks fun too. It is just a simple fact which makes me curious why you are getting downvotes. lol More curious is why I didn’t.

    I was pretty doubtful when I first heard ‘Unlimited World’ and thought ‘Meh, it’s just going to be like Unlimited Cruise etc’ then I saw the trailer and man was I impressed, the Cel-shaded graphics look absolutely gorgeous and the gameplay looks a lot more smoother than UC. I’m pretty hyped for this now. I hope this gets localized. Unlimited Cruise SP didn’t do so well in europe.
    I wish the 3DS wasn’t Region locked -_-

  • So that’s… two OP games I want, would be 3 but… things happened. I wonder if this will be localized.

  • Nitraion

    Why graphics and music remind me of Ni no kuni

  • Namuro

    Man! The graphic’s nice! I mean the Unlimited Cruise already looks good, but this looks even better! Ah, I’m so hyped for this game now… Let’s hope the gameplay will be good as well. Though I don’t really expect too much from the ‘hunting element’, but it would be amazing if they can make this into another proper hunting game, comparable to God Eater and such…but unlikely.

    Welp, I’m just happy that we’re getting another good-lookin’ One Piece game!

    …Luffy just entered “Trans Town.” .__.

  • Devinja

    The logo even looks like Monster Hunter Portable 3rds logo. Anyway hopefully the good ratings of One Piece on Toonami and Pirate Warriors 2 lets them bring this and Romance Dawn to US, even if its just a digital version.

  • Jesse Torres

    I hope it has a good story to it.

    • Caleb

      not me.

    • British_Otaku

      Story? It’s the Unlimited series.
      It’ll have a so so excuse for you to be on a new island (or many islands as Cruise did) which has lots of old and new things to catch, fish, fight and explore. I’ll take the fanservice instead of the story.

      Would like to have Kinemon (why not his son too?) and Law as part of the group this time around. Seeing Law fish… PLEASE!

  • 3PointDecoupage

    Dammit, 3ds is region locked isn’t it? I actually wouldn’t mind porting this…

  • hope there not the only playable characters

  • Tails the Foxhound

    Ooh, I hope Kinemon is in this too (and that this gets a localization), he’s my new favorite after Brook.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Catching bugs with friends never looks so cool lol.^_^
