The game will focus on a new story by Eiichiro Oda, which follows the Straw Hat Crew’s voyage on a mysterious island after getting ship-wrecked by a huge storm – leaving the Thousands Sunny broken.
Playable characters from the Straw Hats that were confirmed by Bandai Namco include Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Chopper, Robin, Franky, and Brook (unfortunately no Jinbei yet).
Eiichiro Oda has also designed new character and monster concepts exclusively for One Piece Odyssey, such as a character similar to Shandians during the Skypiea arc.
Animal creatures feature a mouse creature wearing a top hat, a penguin with a Mohawk, and a crocodile-dinosaur-dragon creature fusion.
