One Piece Unlimited World: Red Has Nine Playable Characters

By Spencer . July 23, 2013 . 1:38am

One Piece Unlimited World: Red is essentially a hunting game with the Straw Hat pirates and bug catching. Namco Bandai confirmed nine characters in the game and the list probably won’t surprise One Piece fans.

Monkey D. Luffy is playable and he has usual stretchy punches and Gear Second techniques.

Roronoa Zoro uses his swords to cut through enemies. One of his skills is “aggressive mode” and if you activate this you temporarily lower Zoro’s defense, but get a huge attack power boost.

Nami is great as a support character and item gatherer since she can steal items from enemies.

Usopp deals long range attacks and can pinpoint shots to snipe enemies from afar.

Sanji can use a rush attack to hit enemies and use his cooking skills to support his group.

Being the ship’s doctor, Chopper can restore characters HP and heal abnormal conditions.

Nico Robin can use her archaeology knowledge to get items from stone monuments on the map.

Franky is a power character with flashy attacks like a rocket launcher and beam. He can also pose in the middle of an attack to power it up.

Brook uses music to buff the party or make enemies fall alseep. He can also walk on water so he can go places other characters cannot.

One Piece Unlimited World: Red comes out on November 21 for Nintendo 3DS.

    Isn’t that nine characters? Unless Chopper isn’t playable (he’s the only one missing in those screenshots), but I doubt it.

    • Chris Yuen

      Eh? He’s in Kung Fu point in that screenshot with Sanji and Zoro, isn’t he?

      • malek86

        Uh, that’s Chopper? A new form maybe? I must admit I haven’t been following the latest manga chapters (I’m still stuck at volume 64 or so).

    • Vyleon

      Chopper was shown as a playable character in the trailer.

  • Virevolte

    Brook sounds fun to play. =)

    • Testsubject909

      We need some button to make him ask “Can you show me your panties? YOHOHOHOHOHO!”

      • Virevolte

        Then playing Brook wouldn’t be just fun but totally awesome.

      • British_Otaku

        Perhaps they will do that as a taunt.

        Ganbarion’s Gigant Battle 2 had a “DON!” item which you could activate at any time by pressing select. Perhaps they could do dedicated taunts here, I even see those in MH.

  • Pedro Tavares

    Yeah its an error its 9 characters, Chopper was confirmed in the first ever images along with Luffy Zoro and Sanji and Siliconera just did an article last week about Chopper and Franky abilities.

    Guessing we might get a vs mode to use other bosses/characters ingame and hopefully more special missions like the one we use Ace.

  • Herok♞

    There are 9 straw hats and they all seem to be playable

    • Testsubject909

      Amusing because he actually lists all 9 members.

      I think he might’ve had a brainfart moment. They revealed 8 more characters. So when he went to write about how many playable characters there were, the number 8 must’ve stayed in his brain and he forgot to do the +1.

    • There are technically 10. Jinbei just hasn’t found Luffy yet.

      • Herok♞

        Jinbei isn’t an official member yet if he ever will become one

        • He already stated he is joining Luffy. He just hasn’t caught up with him yet.

          • Tienron

            he isn’t an official member he’s on the same page maybe as vivi as a straw hat in heart.

  • HassanJamal

    This game looks pretty nice.

  • Patrick Lucas Honeyman

    Liking the cell-shaded style of the game and is got me curious.

    Is the November release date a Western one or is it Japan first?

    • British_Otaku

      It is the Japanese release date.

      There are no announced plans for the “West” or any of the less remembered regions like Australia or South America. I suppose every One Piece game except Gigant Battle 2 (and Romance Dawn if you wanted it on a PSP specifically) was localised somewhere for the last few years.

  • British_Otaku

    I was this close to panicking that we are getting a One Piece licensed game from Ganbarion, the kings of fanservice with less than the full set of Straw Hats.

    Given that they are aiming for a monster hunter like feel, I won’t be surprised if the cast is smaller than Unlimited Adventure + Cruise (The whole crew for story mode + every generic character you fight + lots of key villains and heroes from Don Krieg and Kuro to Whitebeard) or Gigant Battle 2.

    The game is looking really nice, it’s a shame that it is likely to localised slower than most One Piece titles and that I won’t find many people to play with for multiplayer.

  • fairysun

    I’ve never heard about this game before. Booking the date on my gaming calendar.

  • Well, we called it. The characters have been described above, but it’s basically classes like every other RPG.
    Luffy – Fighter
    Zoro – Swordsman
    Nami – Thief
    Usopp – Sniper
    Sanji – Fighter + Support
    Chopper – Healer
    Robin – Archaeologist
    Franky – Tank
    Brook – Musician (Buffs)
    I was hoping we’d have more playable characters, though. It’d be awesome. Ace could be the Fire Mage class.

    • Gold_Ultima

      It’s after the time jump, so I have some bad news for you… You won’t be playing as Ace any time soon.

      • I know. I didn’t mention that because it’s technically a spoiler for those that don’t know. Although *SPOILER* What about Law? With the alliance, he’s technically part of the crew. *END SPOILER*
