Expected on January 13, the video game One Piece Odyssey is regularly talked about. During the month of October, fans of Eiichiro Oda’s manga were able to discover the return of Luffy and his companions to Alabasta: it is one of the first kingdoms to be saved from dictatorship by the Straw Hat and his nakamas . Bandai Namco then clarified that Luffy and company will have to “relive their own memories to regain their powers” with some changes since their journeys.
A feature that has given hope to One Piece fans: having a game adapted from the manga where exploration seems free while having permission to relive the greatest adventures of the universe. A hope still fueled today since the publisher has added a layer with a new trailer. The latter, to be viewed at the top of this article, includes the Water Seven story arc to One Piece Odyssey. A very popular and very important period since many events take place there.

“I choose to live”
During this adventure, players will be able to (re)discover a new story around the Straw Hats, with particular emphasis on Usopp and Robin in a totally legitimate way since they are also the two stars of this narrative arc in the manga: a few passages from the trailer are sure to bring tears to some people’s eyes. Of course, this quest will lead them to see familiar places again, such as the Galerie-La Compagnie or known faces such as Franky’s gang, Iceburg, Aokiji and certain members of CP9 such as Lucci and Kaku.
Past adventures that become available through the “depths of the Memory World”. If the stories will be slightly different, they will probably highlight the shônen values perpetuated by the manga: going beyond oneself, the will to never give up and to always put friends before oneself. What also to remember the (very) long road traveled by Luffy and his companions.
As a reminder, One Piece Odyssey is expected on January 13, 2023 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series. It is already available for pre-order and has a collector’s edition at €169.99.
