Japanese developer Ganbarion has put together one hell of a game, certainly the most ambitious ever created for the One Piece franchise. I’ve played Monkey D. Luffy in fighting games countless times, and I’ve never connected with the character nearly as much as I have just running through the green grassy hills of One Piece: World Seeker. [Impressions]
Seems like it's getting mixed reviews, I liked that Game Informer's line tho..
King Of The One Piece Games.
Damn, got me excited there.. can't wait to try it out myself

I never trust reviews for anime licensed games.

If you like the IP, chances are there’s some fun to be had. It’s fanservice. I don’t like One Piece so I’m uninterested, but I bet fans of the series will.

I wouldn't say garbage - it's like Jump Force and co. solid enough for fans that can overlook the deep flaws.

It's definitely not One Piece Breath of the Wild though.
Excuse me but i wouldn't call Jump Force and this one solid enough for fans.

FighterZ and Naruto games from CC2 are solid enough and really good games, these are cash grabs using popular IPs.

Those are games selling mostly because of the IP and fanservice - people buying these games dont really care for reviews. There is a reason why Bamco can release them non-stop.

From what I look it's kind of spiritual successor Unlimited Adventure/Cruise/World. Those are okay games, but if you're invested in One Piece universe they're a lot of fun. Playing as Luffy only sucks a bit but as long as there's plenty of interactions with SH crews it'll be fine.

Too bad, but it never looked good in videos so it was kinda expected.
I really liked the Unlimited Cruise/World games.
One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 is the best Once Piece game though. Amazing musou game all around.

it's not an arena fighter, so that makes it more interesting than most anime licensed games to me

But yeah not surprised it's not outstanding, but when I'm caught up with One Piece (in about 50 years, I only just finished Alabasta, which was so good) I'll definitely check it out. Just fun to see the world and characters in something that isn't a fighting game, though I'll probably check out Unlimited Cruise and Pirate Warriors first.

Not even surprised lol. What game has this developer developed? And wth were they thinking about doing a one piece game with only one character. I’ll give it a try once it hits bargain bin.
Making Luffy only playable is smart because no other Straw Hats really have the movement abilities as him aside from Robin and Sanji, though him running in the sky would always look weird.

Like Usopp has Pop Green maybe he could.

I think the safe play with Namco's anime games is to just expect a 6-7 out of 10 sort of game that gets elevated to "Worth Playing" if you like the property. Occasionally you'll get a Ninja Storm or FighterZ that is worth playing even for non-fans, but you'll hear about those when they happen.

I'm expecting something on par with Unlimited Adventure and Unlimited World Red. Sounds like that's what we're getting.

And its reviews are about the same as the My hero game, hell more people recommend World Seeker then the My Hero game
OP World Seeker is a more ambitious game for sure.

The reasons are Unreal Engine 4 and low production value.
Of course when you have these two factors you can make shitty games all year along.
They made these kind of games before the UE4 as well though - they just werent on HD systems for the most part but on handhelds.

Not very surprised, though it still looks good enough that I'll probably get it in a sale.

I haven't seen any mentions about the soundtrack though, even though it sounds amazing in the background of the IGN video review. Kohei Tanaka delivers again!

Well good news:

One feature that I really liked in One Piece: World Seeker is the ability to create your own playlist with the game’s soundtrack. Some of the most iconic anime of all time is accompanied by incredible music. While you won’t find any original One Piece music in this game, it’s got a really fun set of songs and the ability to listen to those songs anywhere, in any order is a welcome feature that I hope more games adopt.

I bought the Unlimited World Red for a friend a few years ago, sine he is big fan of One Piece. He seemed to like it initially but after a few days he dropped it completely, the gameplay was the same shit over and over according to him :(

Robin,sanji(fly) franky(motorcycle,shogun,coup de poo)
Usopp pop green wolf
Nami(Zeus(it’s a game they don’t have to follow them rules) and milky road
Chopper and brook can just run

Agree or not, but Naruto from CC2 is way better than all the anime games published by Namco Bandai (minus DB)
And then they made Shinobi Striker.
This is a ridiculously irresponsible opinion to post, considering Bamco does way, way more than just JUMP bullshit.

It's one thing to be dissatisfied with games like Jump Force, it's another to even suggest that Jump Force is of the same quality of One Piece because review metascore dictates as such...to even go as far as to call this a cash grab when this is the sole project Ganbarion (the only One Piece developer) has been working on for YEARS...but to undermine the swath of titles Bamco publishes that are licensed titles comes off as incredibly shitty to me.

Why can't you just say they fucked up and be done with it instead of making these 5th grade assumptions that UE4 is responsible for shitty games, because I would much prefer if you stopped pretending that you knew anything about game development enough to make shitty ass comments like that
