The ONE PIECE franchise has seen over 300 million manga volumes sold worldwide due to its riveting action, compelling storylines, and charming characters that make its fans cheer, laugh, and cry.

The game’s Story Mode will take players through the Straw Hat Crew’s adventures on the Forgotten Island as they try to reunite with their kidnapped crew members, battle fearsome enemies, bosses, and come face to face with the Red Count; a frighteningly powerful pirate who escaped the lower depths of Impel Down, the infamous underwater maximum-security prison for the most dangerous criminals and pirates. When players simply want to pull out the punches, the Battle Coliseum Mode, which is inspired by the Dressrosa story arc from the ONE PIECE manga and anime, introduces new and exciting gameplay content that lets players duke it out with their favorite characters, including Fujitora, Jimbei, Boa Hancock, and more.
