BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Asia announced yesterday that One Piece World Seeker will be released on 15th March 2019 in Southeast Asia (Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore and Philippines) for the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC Digital. Additionally, they revealed the details of the collector’s edition, The Pirate King Edition.
Along with the announcement, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Asia shared a new gameplay footage of One Piece World Seeker.
Other than travelling the world using Luffy’s Devil Fruit power, we are introduced to Luffy’s two main action modes (Haki). The first, Arnament Haki, focuses on Luffy’s raw power for sheer overwhelming force. The second, Observation Haki, allows Luffy to slow down time and improves his sneaking prowess along with seeing through walls.
One Piece World Seeker also features Skill Tree and Crafting/Cooking mechanics. Luffy will gain skill points to unlock abilities in the Skill Tree as players progress through the game. On the other hand, players can approach Usopp or Franky, members of the Straw Hat Pirate Crew, to craft items. Sanji, the crew’s chef, can make Lunch Boxes for the rest of the crew.
Lastly, the gameplay footage confirmed that Luffy will have access to his powerful Gear Fourth. In that mode, players will get new abilities and traversal skills for a limited amount of time.
The Pirate King Edition will include the following items:
- Full game of One Piece World Seeker
- Season Pass
- Exclusive Luffy Figurine (21cm)
- Exclusive Full Scale Replica of the Gum Gum Devil Fruit
- Soundtrack composed by Kohei Tanak
