Yep, One Piece: Unlimited World RED Sure Sounds Like Monster Hunter

One Piece: Unlimited World RED has a release date in Japan. Namco Bandai’s Monster Hunter-esque One Piece game will be released in November for the Nintendo 3DS, V Jump magazine reveals.


In One Piece: Unlimited World RED, the Strawhat crew are in a place named Transtown, which you’ll help build up through battling and exploration. You’ll gather raw materials and, using these, help the town grow and increase its facilities. Along the way, the townsfolk will assist you with hints.


Yep, that sounds like Monster Hunter. In fact, One Piece: Unlimited World RED also assigns unique abilities to each character, which almost separates them into classes. For example, Usopp can be a sniper and Franky can create a cannon on the spot.


One Piece: Unlimited World RED will be available on November 21st for 5,980 yen. Pre-ordering the game will allow buyers to download a Luffy Exploration Costume based on the Strong World movie, as well as a quest with Portgas D. Ace as a playable character.

    So any idea what Robin will be? Because I will main Robin…. if somehow I can ever play this outside of japan…

    • Ferofax

      She probably specializes in capturing. Or bitchslapping. Or tickling to the point of exhaustion.

      • Surgeon of Death

        Define “Capturing” lol

        • Ferofax

          Think Cinque Fleur, except many, many, many hands. One Piece’s version of a Pitfall Trap.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    So the Monster Hunting and Musuo genres are to Japan now as FPS games are to the US. Wonder when over saturation will occur.

    Monster Hunter
    God Eater
    One Piece
    Ragnarok Odyssey

    …what’s next?

    • Suicunesol

      Forgot Toukiden and Soul Sacrifice.

    • Leon_Tekashi

      Except MH is more fun and last I’ve checked, they don’t rehash a lot of things compare to CoD.

  • Joshua Myers

    Now bring it the US

    • subsamuel01

      Maybe Europe but NA has no chance.

    • How about they bring Romance Dawn first? Its been announced not coming to the US while confirmed coming to Europe. I’m afraid this game will suffer the same fate.

  • RedShadoww

    God dammit this looks amazing. Someone needs to start up an Operation RED ASAP.

  • sounds alot more like the atelier series id say, sounds like fun though

  • British_Otaku

    My finger is hovering over the preorder button. I wish they would continue the good policies of the past with the no DLC, everything on the cart, if the demo and trailers seem promising it will be mine regardless of how lax Namco Bandai outside of Japan may be.

    Curious that the bonus is based on Strong World and not Film Z. Hope costumes aren’t hidden behind a paywall, I want to see a selection matching Unlimited Adventure as well as the Cruise titles, well even if Franky has a new design all together.

    Doesn’t matter if it’s a good game, I’m still gonna get it… if it’s in english of course. hehe. It looks good for me anyway.
