Dragon Quest for the One Piece
I enjoyed a bit of the last one piece rpg but not watching the anime ruined the immersion for me, if you plan on playing this they I'd say its essential you watch the anime first
Looking forward to this
What a nice surprise and for 2022 as well. Since I am a huge One Piece fan I'll definitely be looking forward to this
I want another Naruto RPG. The best games i played were Naruto Rise of a Ninja and Naruto Broken Bonds... it makes me sad that they stopped making them.
One Piece is my top 1 favorite manga series, but a lot of the games are meh…lack of Jinbe is also a bummer. I do hope this is good though, a turn based One Piece RPG is right up my alley
@Royalblues Yes, I'm going wild over the manga!
Good choice. Law and Zolo are one of my favorites too. My #1 character has always been Sanji, but Robin and Nami are definitely close too.
This is going to be my first jrpg I play on xbox, I don't have time to watch the hundreds of episodes of anime to catch up with story so I don't want to risk buying a game I will lose interest in because I don't understand the plot, but at the same time from what I've seen it looks really good and I deffo want to try it.
@Royalblues biggest bummer for me is the fact that it's turn based.
Like Naoki Yoshida famously said, the younger generation doesn't want turn based
Zorro is thee BEST character. Followed by Oden.
