One Piece: Romance Dawn For 3DS Has Extra Dungeons And Pandaman

033 (1) Namco Bandai released One Piece: Romance Dawn for the 3DS this week in Japan. The 3DS port contains several additions, including the use of the touch screen as a dungeon map and various difficulty tweaks.


Unlike the Unlimited World and Pirate Warriors games, Romance Dawn is an RPG in which you can equip and create items, and the story covers almost 600 chapters from the original manga, from the very beginning to Marineford, the last major arc before the two-year time leap.


Apart from the main story, there are side quest dungeons that you can unlock by obtaining treasure maps. These dungeons can be randomly generated each time you enter them.

At the end of each dungeon, you will encounter a past boss enemy, but they will be more powerful than before. As you can see in these screenshots, you’ll get to fight prominent enemies from the original series, as well as allies like Jinbe and Boa Hancock. You can also fight Pandaman, the cameo character who appears repeatedly in the manga and anime.

    First I heard of the extra dungeons and Pandaman, though I’ve also heard that this isn’t that good of an RPG… I’ll definitely pick up the European release still.

    aw man, say there isn’t a three party limit o no

  • malek86

    Iva looks seriously weird in 3D.

    Anyway, if they fixed some of the issues of the original, I can see myself eventually try and pick this up, just because One Piece is One Piece.

    damn region lock.

    • James Williams

      • Warboss Aohd

        my point

        • James Williams

          There’s no way this one wont make it’s way over to the US though, i’m guessing they left the unlimited cruise ones though because there awful.

  • Göran Isacson

    If Pandaman is not the most powerful enemy in the game, some kind of ATLUS-level secret boss that requires perfect co-operation between four people, I will be ever so disappoint NamDai. Ever. So. Disappoint.

      Ur confusing this for unlimited red

      • Göran Isacson

        Oooh, that I am. Still, Pandaman being a superpowerful bonus boss should still be a thing that happens.

    Well I think that the pic with Aokiji confirms that the Film Z DLC will be included ^^

  • LogicIncarnate

    Why no US release?

    • Warboss Aohd

      an excellent question

      Let’s go over why it makes no sense.

      A. It’s airing on Toonami right now, it’s in people’s minds.
      B. It’s still ongoing
      C. it’s being translated
      D. it’s on the 3DS
      E. 3DS allows Digital Sales.

      This doesn’t make a huge deal of sense.
