    One Piece Grand Cruise, a new game by Bandai Namco Entertainment, has been announced for PlayStation VR. It is the first game for the franchise to be available on said console.

Furthermore, from July 22, some fans may get an opportunity to play the game at Tokyo One Piece Tower and play an 8-player collaborative round.

    Neat concept in theory, but VR hasn't been impressive at all yet. And this will probably be no different. Hell, the fact that it will be a VR game may even hurt it more. My expectations are fairly low. Can't lie :/

    There are some decent VR games. Epic Games (Talented developers) developed a VR game called "Robo Recall". It got very positive reviews from popular websites such as IGN and Metacritic. The game was basically Time Crisis with robots or old school arcade shooting games

    A VR won't work for Dragon Ball or Naruto, but it will certainly work for One Piece.

    Bandai Namco just needs to find talented developers. They already got 1-8 players co-op down. That's A+, especially for One Piece.

    Is it just me or does Nami's model seems similar to One Piece Burning without manga style graphics? Even though I don't have a huge problem with this since other gaming companies reuse old games for VR such as Batman Arkham VR, but Bamco Namco needs to stop being cheap lmao. I guess most of the money is for Project Dawn. Based on that Sanji picture, I hope we can cook any kind of food.

    More pictures and information by Famitsu and 4gamer. And some funny references.

    I'm not going to lie, Bandai Namco should try developing this game similar to their pirate arcade game.

    Let's repel the navy with the Straw Hat Crew

    "ONE PIECE GRAND CRUISE TRIAL ZONE" is being held at Tokyo One Piece Tower 5F top floor. If you are 12 years of age or older and you have an entry ticket, you can experience it free of charge, but because congestion is expected, you need to receive a numbered ticket in advance at the entrance.

    It is possible to enter up to 8 people at a time, and the play time is about 15 minutes including an explanation in the place. Although numbered tickets are dealt, there are also lectures on how to install the PlayStation VR, so we want them to gather in about 10 minutes ago.

    In addition, a large screen and 8 PlayStation VRs are prepared in the hall, and 8 players will play simultaneously. Those who came along without playing can also see the state of the game through a large screen.

    [​IMG]
    The stage setting is "New World version" specification. Character voice is, of course, the same cast as the animation is in charge.

    When you start playing by choosing the sex of the player character according to the instruction of the moderator coming from the telegraph in the screen, it goes to the deck of Thousand Sunny. Because it is the world of VR, you can freely overlook all directions at 360 degrees during a conversation. Besides being able to enjoy watching the vibrant straw hat motif moving about the deck arbitrarily, there is a reaction such as saying something when you focus attention on specific characters and objects (cursor is displayed).

    [​IMG]
    Various "preparations" are prepared in the game, and I look around as a group around the clock]

    And after the conversation with Luffy, we select "Nami 's Room" or "Kitchen" and move and enjoy communication in each room. Nami and Robin are in the room of Nami, Sanji and Chopper appear in the kitchen. By the way, since the content of conversation changes slightly depending on the gender selected at the start of the game, there are four patterns in total.

    [​IMG]
    Nami's room. Here is the pleasant reward that you will hear Nami's excitement/complainant. Looking at the door, Brook seems to be peeping every few seconds.

    After the conversation in the room, once again returning to the deck, it is like a strange atmosphere. Navy warships have launched a bombardment! From here, it will be a shooting game that uses a motion controller (Play Station Move) to shoot down the bullets that the Navy shoots with a cannon.

    When you hold the controller, the guide of the aim is displayed, so if you press the trigger button according to the bullet that flies it, it is okay. Meat with bullets of the cannon, flesh with jars and bones will fly, but if you shoot them down, you get higher scores. In the middle of the battle, you can enter the production such as familiar stubbornness by Zoro and Sanji!

    In this game, eight players are divided into four teams and compete for their total score. After the end, the members of the Straw Hat Crew gather one word.

    The end date of this corner is still unknown. People who want to play ahead of the launch of the game, let's try and experience it.

    There are 8 sets of PS VR, PS Move, and headphones in the hall, and 8 people can enjoy the game at the same time. In addition to the sound of the game from the headphones, the voice of the cast who is the facilitator through the "Dengeki" of the screen is also heard, and this is the atmosphere unique to the theme park.

    This is "ONE PIECE GRAND CRUISE TRIAL ZONE". Experience is for over 12 years old.

    [​IMG]
    PS VR installation is basically done by oneself. You can tell me how to install it in advance

    When the play begins, there is a deck of Thousand Sunny, a straw hat of Luffy and others comes up and speaks to the player. After that, you can move to "Nami's room" or "kitchen" by choice and enjoy communication with each character. By the way, there were Nami and Robin in the former, Sanji and chopper in the latter, the author went to Nami 's room of course and enjoyed touching Nami and Robin in places where hands could reach.

    [​IMG]
    Luffy appeared in front of the player. The character's voice is the same as the animation

    [​IMG]
    This is Sanji that appears in the kitchen. The content of the conversation is different depending on the sex you choose at the beginning of the game.

    Returning again to the deck, this time Navy warships will attack Thousand Sunny. From here it's a shooting game. All eight players gather at the deck and use the cannon given to them to aim and shoot down the bullets of the flying cannon. Although it does not become a game over even if you shoot it, if you can hit it well, you get a score, and finally it is a competition to compete for the total points of the four teams divided into left and right. If you destroy the meat and points that fly with the cannon 's bullets it seems that the score is high.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    (Left) There are a number of cannons on the deck. As you turn left and right, you can see the appearance of other players. (Right) Since the line is extending from the small cannon at hand, please shoot a bullet based on it

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Left) Between fights, scenes where Zoro and Sanji interact. Which player is active depends on the player's vote? (Right) Finally, the total score of the left and right teams is displayed.


    As an experience, the latter half of shooting becomes main, but when you look at a specific character or object, such as when you are waiting on the deck, some reaction may come back. It is fun to look for such details. Including explanations etc., the experience is about 20 minutes. The opportunity to enjoy at the same time by eight people seems to be quite difficult even after the game is released, so fans will definitely visit the Tokyo One Piece Tower. By the way, it is recommended that the end date of the pre-experience trial is undecided and it is recommended to go early so that it will not be the case that you have finished when you notice it.
