The release of One Piece: Odyssey was one of several surprises at Summer Game Fest

The manga-based game follows the Straw Hat Pirates to an unknown island somewhere in the Great Line, and is inspired by the writings of One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda — who is reported to have contributed drawings for One Piece: Odyssey.

Before this current announcement, One Piece: Odyssey was claimed to have been in development for three years and is set to be published in 2022. This week, Bandai Namco released the first-ever gameplay footage for the upcoming One Piece: Odyssey, and there was a lot to look forward to, especially the confirmed playable characters.

The Straw Hat Pirates will land on a strange island in One Piece: Odyssey, offering fans access to multiple playable characters.

Without the one and only Monkey D. Luffy, it wouldn't be a One Piece game. Not only is the One Piece protagonist removed from his characteristic straw hat, but also from the rest of the Straw Hat Pirates. He wakes up on a mystery island populated by golem-like creatures, whom he must defeat using One Piece: Odyssey's Persona-style battle UI.
