Today Bandai Namco Entertainment released the first gameplay trailer for its upcoming One Piece virtual reality game One Piece Grand Cruise.
We get to see how the game works, with basic interactions with the characters somewhat similar to what you see in Summer Lesson games, but there is more gameplay here, including a battle against an enemy ship and defending from the attack of a Kraken.
All is topped by the well-known cast of the anime, including Luffy’s crew and assorted villains, much to the joy of One Piece fans.
The game will come in 2018, with no precise release window announced for now. It will be exclusive to Sony Interactive Entertainment’s PlayStation VR on PS4.
At the moment, we don’t know whether there will be a localization. Bandai Namco has normally been good in localizing obscure Japanese games, but Summer Lesson is not a positive precedent for virtual reality.
