One Piece Unlimited World: Red keeps getting more enticing for fans. First came the news that arch-villain Red and new buddy Pat are getting the original treatment, having been designed by One Piece mangaka Eiichiro Oda. Now, Namco have shared new information on the game’s story alongside a new trailer.
Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirates crew meet up with Pat, a tanooki with the mystical power to change leaves into whatever he’s written onto them. Pat requests that they bring him to “That island where I can meet someone”–an island inauspiciously called The Forgotten Island. But waiting for them on the island is “The Earl” Red, a pirate who’s escaped from pirate prison Impel Down’s level 6–the deepest part of the prison.
Pat then mysteriously transforms into a quill pen which Red takes for himself, claiming the power as his own. Near the end of the video, Red’s also spotted about to bite into what appears to be a Devil Fruit–the fruits which give many One Piece characters their powers, such as Luffy’s rubber body. The trailer also shows off some of the bosses Luffy and his team will fight against, such as classic pirate Crocodile and Trafalgar Law. Why exactly they’re there has not been revealed.
Additionally, Namco have also shared a screenshot of the game’s pre-order bonus, which include a special mission where players can play as Ace, alongside the costume Luffy wore in the One Piece: Strong World movie (below). Ace’s special mission involves the Marine Ford arc and is a new, original mission, too.
One Piece Unlimited World: Red will be out for the Nintendo 3DS November 21st in Japan. The game will allow up to four players to play together.
