The official PlayStation YouTube channel uploaded a new trailer detailing the various systems and mechanics that will be in One Piece Odyssey. The trailer is over ten minutes long. It also includes a synopsis of One Piece Odyssey’s plot, a look at the history of the game’s development, and a rundown on the game’s overall flow.
The trailer looks specifically at how battles and adventuring in One Piece Odyssey will work. It also shows the graphics and environments that will help players to lose themselves in the world of One Piece. To make the game feel like an extension of the show, the developers focused on camerawork and character expressions in combat.
There is a turn-based combat system in order to best showcase the talents of the Straw Hat Pirates. As well, a rock-paper-scissor mechanic with Power, Speed, and Technique is present. This will help you to lay down the groundwork for strategies. The Scramble Area Battle system randomly places characters in the arena, and you have to incorporate everyone’s positions into your tactics. There are also “dramatic scenes” that act as mini-missions, which will grant a boost to post-battle rewards.
For the adventuring portion, you can switch freely between different characters to explore. As Usopp, you can use his slingshot to hit distant objects. Meanwhile, Chopper is small enough to fit in small spaces. You can use Zoro to cut open chests, Sanji can look for cooking ingredients, and Nami can find money on the ground. You can also use these field actions to solve dungeon puzzles.
Finally, you can fully customize characters with accessories. As well, there are multiple options to make items or foods with Usopp, Sanji, or Robin. How many accessories a character can equip will increase as you play through the story.
