Bandai Namco has confirmed that One Piece Odyssey Deluxe Edition, a turn-based RPG based on the insanely mega-popular One Piece manga, will launch for Nintendo Switch on 25 July 2024. Initially released on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC in January 2023, the Switch version of the game will include a new post-game scenario called 'Reunion of Memories', additional costumes for the Straw Hat Crew, and some exclusive outfits only available in the Switch version.

The game is notably different as compared to other One Piece games on the Switch, such as the fighting game, Pirate Warriors, and World Red. Developed with an original storyline and new character and monster designs by the manga creator himself, Eiichiro Oda, One Piece Odyssey introduces the Straw Hat Pirates to the turn-based RPGs genre.

The story follows Luffy and his crew as they are marooned on a mysterious island called Waford after a storm. There, Luffy finds himself separated from his companions and stripped of his powers. He must now rescue his crew and regain his abilities to escape the island. The game allows players to control each member of the Straw Hat Pirates, utilising their unique skills in combat and exploration.

The combat system in One Piece Odyssey is not quite what veterans of turned-based games are used to. It features 'Scramble Area Battles' that divide each combat scenario into zones. Players need to strategically move their characters between these zones to protect their weaknesses and exploit the enemy's, adding a strategic layer to the gameplay that enriches the challenge and engagement for the player.

Additionally, those who make an early purchase of the package version will receive the One Piece Odyssey Deluxe Edition 'Launch Celebration Pack' of the One Piece card game as a bonus.

And if you purchased the package version early or pre-ordered the digital version, you will receive the in-game item, Jewelry Set, as a bonus, which includes: 

  • TP Auto Regen Petit Jewelry

  • Death’s Edge Petit Power Jewelry
