Luffy vs Arlong – New One Piece: Romance Dawn Scan

Posted on August 18, 2012

On this fine Saturday, a new One Piece: Romance Dawn scan has been released! It features over 15 screenshots, some of which are new and some of which you may have seen in past scans. As for the new, the main highlight we would have to say is the screenshot with Luffy vs Arlong!

Additionally, the scan reveals that the game has an active turn style system called the “Grand Tactical Battle System”. Pretty much what that means is that players can assign commands to buttons and make moves until they’ve used up the turn’s available cost. Players will be able to string together attacks to perform combos. And when attacks hit the enemy, players earn what is known as “TP” to subsequently perform special attacks and super attacks.

One Piece: Romance Dawn is a command based RPG for the Sony PSP. It will follow the One Piece manga story all the way from the beginning in East Blue. Players will be able to adventure through the One Piece world, engaging in battle to gain experience and improve abilities such as speed, defense, and attack strength. One Piece: Romance Dawn is scheduled to be released in Japan in the Winter of 2012.
