One Piece Odyssey is a video game adaptation of the One Piece anime franchise written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. The RPG game will feature a brand new story about Monkey D. Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates.

The story begins with the Thousand Sunny crew getting shipwrecked and separated from each other during a storm. Main man Luffy embarks on a journey of reuniting with his friends and finding his iconic straw hat on a new mysterious island.

Odyssey producer Katsuaki Tsuzuki worked closely with Oda to provide a faithful adaptation of the beloved franchise. Oda even created various original character and monster designs for the game.

While it’s been three years since he designed the characters, Oda’s initial reaction to Odyssey was one of awe. The One Piece author praised its “incredible immersion” and mentioned that it was like watching a movie.

As for Odyssey’s locations, the art team found inspiration from preexisting material such as the One Piece manga and anime.
