V Jump magazine has tidbits of new information on One Piece: Unlimited World Red. As we’ve mentioned previously, Unlimited World Red draws inspiration from hunting action games like Monster Hunter, and has you battling large enemies in 4-player co-op. When you aren’t battling, you’ll be fishing, digging and catching bugs.

 

V Jump reveals abilities that some of Luffy’s cohorts will have. Franky can build a cannon on the spot and fire it at enemies. Chopper can mix together medicine to heal the group. Meanwhile, Usopp can sharp-shoot enemies from afar.

 

One Piece: Unlimited World Red also lets you play as Sanji and Zoro. We haven’t seen Nami in any gameplay footage or screens, but she’s present in the game, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see her available as a selectable character, too.

 

One Piece: Unlimited World Red doesn’t have a release date yet. You can watch a trailer for the game here.
