One Piece has been going on for quite a while now (almost 17 years!) and this upcoming mobile game called One Piece: Treasure Cruise by Bandai Namco will be spanning through its vast oceans and many story arcs. Famitsu gives us a look at the upcoming game.
The gameplay itself is pretty simple, as you put together your team of Mugiwara pirates and friends. The characters have stats in health, attack, healing, and combos.
They also seem to have various attribute-types, such as skill, power, speed, heart, and wisdom (although, it does seem strange to see Zoro with “wisdom” and Usopp with “power”)
Similar to the Puzzle & Dragons games, the characters can evolve upon meeting certain conditions. For example, Alvida is shown evolved into her form after eating the Sube Sube no Mi, and increased all her parameters.
The characters all have their own signature moves like Luffy’s Gomu Gomu no Bazooka, and many others, that will come in handy during the fights.
While the reports don’t mention how far along the game follows the One Piece story, they mention that it starts out when Luffy first meets Shanks and gets his hat, followed by the encounter of his first crewmate Zoro.
The poster for the game shows Blackbeard, Doflamingo, and others, so it’s safe to assume that it goes up to at least theMarineford Arc.
One Piece: Treasure Cruise is slated for release this spring for iOS and Android.
