Hold onto your hats One Piece fans Namco Bandai has announced that One Piece is going to be adapted to the 3DS titles One Piece: Romance Dawns which will give everybody who plays an authentic RPG experience of the Eiichiro Oda classic.
You’ll be able to re-enact the famous battles against famous bosses such as Buggy, Arlong, Crocodile, Rob Lucci to name a few. The new game features amazing cel-shaded graphics to bring the all the characters of One Piece to life as well as stages from famous scenarios and settings that One Piece fans will recognise.
And if that doesn’t want to make you put on a straw hat and call yourself a pirate, the game will feature a new item crafting feature along with customisation along with a battle system called “Grand Tactical Battles” a system which will test players reflexes as the results will change the course of battle through pressing the right button. And for those seasoned pirates the “Grand Chain” system will allow buccaneers to connect and chain attacks as well as special attacks in union.
Olivier Comte, Senior Vice President of Namco Bandai had this to say:
“The One Piece games continue to seduce fans across Europe, One Piece: Romance Dawns brings a full new experience as the very first One Piece RPG to stay faithful to the masterpiece”. “As a leading anime license, One Piece is celebrated all over the world. Moreover, One Piece Romance Dawns will give you the opportunity to be a hero in a super exciting adventure, as a fan, you can’t miss it! ”
As an Otaku myself, this is one of the reasons I’ll buy a 3DS.
