One Piece: World Seeker's Latest Screenshots Introduce New Gameplay Mechanics and Sky Island

One Piece: World Seeker's latest screenshots from Bandai Namco Entertainment highlight Sky Island, treasuring hunting, and the game's Karma System.

January 28, 2019

With under two months to go until it finally launches, Bandai Namco Entertainment released a new batch of screenshots for One Piece: World Seeker. While previous batches of screenshots have focused more on characters and combat, these new images shift the focus to some of One Piece: World Seeker’s other gameplay mechanics as well as Sky Island, the prison where part of the game is set.

Specifically, one of these screenshots highlights the Karma System. According to the developers, this aspect of One Piece: World Seeker keeps track of the player’s relationships with various characters over the course of the adventure. As these relationships increase, new special events featuring these characters will pop up to flesh out One Piece: World Seeker’s world and characters.


One screenshot also features a treasure map, which players can find scattered throughout One Piece: World Seeker. These will send players on treasure hunts across the game’s large map that will net players special items. As I mentioned, the other screenshots feature Sky Island, a floating location that players will be able to visit over the course of the game.

For those of you who aren’t aware, One Piece: World Seeker is an open-world action game that sees Monkey D. Luffy exploring Prison Island, a place that was ravaged by war previously but is now being rebuilt by the Navy. The game is being developed by Ganbarion, a Japanese developer you may know for their work on Pandora’s Tower, One Piece: Unlimited World RED, and Dragon Ball Fusions. 

One Piece: World Seeker was previously set for launch in 2018 but the game was delayed by Bandai Namco Entertainment back in September so it could meet fan expectations. In November, the game’s current March release date was officially unveiled alongside another trailer. Not much about the game has been shown since then outside of its opening cinematic. That being said, if you want to learn more about the game you can check out DualShockers’ interview with Producer Rei Hirata.

You can see some of these new screenshots for yourself below. One Piece: World Seeker is still on track to launch for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on March 15 and can be pre-ordered on Amazon.
