Bandai Namco Entertainment, One Piece anime studio Toei Animation, One Piece manga publisher Shuiesha, and One Piece author Eiichiro Oda are all teaming up to contribute their talents in the next One Piece video game said to be at an “unprecedented” level. Until now, the game has been going by its code name – project “Dawn”. Now, however, we may know the name thanks to a trademark filing by Bandai Namco Entertainment – One Piece: World Seeker!
“World Seeker” has been trademarked in the United States, Europe, and Japan by Bandai Namco. It’s mentioned the planning and conception of the game has taken quite some time as it is an unprecedented One Piece game that has never been done before. It will give players a new, unheard of super feeling. One Piece: World Seeker will be an enormous One Piece video game with the setting and music straight from the anime series. The platform(s) World Seeker will be on has not yet been announced and neither has been a release date. We are, however, expecting additional information to be revealed by the end of next week, if not earlier. Again, the name for project “Dawn” being One Piece: World Seeker is just speculation based on a trademark filing, which you can see below. There is also a test page set-up for the Japanese website – http://opws.bn-ent.net/.
The first visual related to the game – released a few weeks ago – is of the Holy Land of Mariejois under destruction, with a shadow of an anonymous figure in front of it. Mariejois is home to the Celestial Dragons and capital of the World Government and an incident has occurred there, causing an outbreak and shaking the influential powers of the One Piece world. Nothing else has been revealed, except more more details will be revealed in the December 11 issue of Jump magazine.
