One Piece: Pirate Warriors is the first PS3 adaptation of The Adventures of Luffy and his Crew. The game is a beat’em all developed by Tecmo Koei and inscribing its gameplay, as its name implies, in the lineage of Musō, a genre set up by Dynasty Warriors 2. The principle is simple and generally the same as each time: a map, points to defend, large-scale battles, territories to seize, all while using his character’s special abilities to defeat massive waves of enemies. This type of game is expanding to more and more licenses and One Piece is currently in its fourth installment, Pirate Warriors.

One Piece Treasure Cruise, released in France in 2015, is the first mobile game in the series. More precisely, it is a free-to-play operating on a “Tap Battle” basis.

Of course, the missions quickly become repetitive despite some subtleties. However, the app has the merit of fulfilling its role to the letter. That of being fun, extremely easy to play, and offering the possibility of plunging again in a different way into the universe of the eponymous shonen.

One Piece Unlimited Cruise 1: Treasure Below, born from the spirit of the developers of Ganbarion in 2009 was, in France, the first One Piece game to offer a really different formula. It is the second title in the Unlimited series, but the 2007 Adventure opus never arrived in our territory. Either way, there’s a mix of action / adventure waiting for an epic that is less edgy, but still offers unprecedented freedom and unexpected features. All crew members are obviously playable and five islands can be explored with them. At the end of each of them, a great and memorable villain of the saga awaits you for an epic confrontation. You will surely understand, this new adaptation of One Piece does not seek fidelity to the base material. If all of this isn’t to your liking, a Versus Mode featuring 30 different characters is here to quench your thirst for hard-core fighting play.

One Piece Unlimited World Red released in 2014 shares two points in common with the Unlimited series. It does not follow the narrative of the manga, and it incorporates a fairly well thought out crafting system. For this title, Ganbarion wanted to do it right and, as a result, One Piece author Eiichiro Oda was dispatched to help with the writing and design of two characters exclusive to World Red. The action / adventure game has received critical acclaim. Especially since it is playable in cooperation, and offers two modes, Adventure and Colosseum.
