Back in July, Bandai Namco teased a new game code-named “Project Dawn” and today they officially revealed it as One Piece: World Seeker for PS4.
The game is being released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original series, and it’s actually a large departure from the One Piece games we have seen before. It’s an open-world game that will let us run around the world of the manga and anime seamlessly as Luffy. It will also feature a “magnificent story” seen from Luffy’s perspective. You can actually see the world of the game in a piece of concept art in the gallery.
Alongside the announcement, we get to see the new logo, and the first batch of screenshots, which definitely look different from the usual Bandai Namco fare.
The game will launch in Japan in 2018, and for now, only PS4 has been announced as the platform of choice. The genre is action-adventure, and it’ll certainly be interesting to see how far Bandai Namco will be able to bring it, and if more platforms will be announced when and if a western release will be revealed.
The official website is also open, and a trailer will come at Jump Festa later this month.
You can check out the screenshots in the gallery below. In other One Piece news, you can also watch the recent trailer for the upcoming One Piece Grand Cruise for PlayStation VR.
