As the series celebrates its 25th year, Bandai Namco has officially announced One Piece Odyssey, a new game in the long-running manga series. The game is a turn-based RPG in the same vein and feel of Dragon Quest XI, and what’s more surprising is that it is being developed by ILCA, the Japanese support studio behind the Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes. Check out the trailer below, as well as more details on this new game set in the expansive One Piece universe.

ONE PIECE ODYSSEY transports the Straw Hats to a mysterious new island where they embark on quests and fight powerful enemies and massive bosses in exciting turn-based battles. In the game, players take on the role of nine of their favorite pirates, playing as Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Franky, Sanji, Usopp, Nico Robin, TonyTony Chopper, and Brook. A new character revealed during the livestream, the cheerful and towering Adio, joins the Straw Hats in their latest adventure.

One Piece Odyssey is based on an original story by series creator Eiichiro Oda, and will feature some new characters as well. Last week, One Piece’s 1044th manga chapter was released, which speaks to just how long the series has been going now as it celebrates 25 years in the industry.

One Piece Odyssey is set to release in 2022 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
