At the Bandai Namco event as part of this year's Tokyo Game Show, it was announced that One Piece Odyssey would be coming to consoles and PC on January 13, 2023. When the game was revealed earlier in 2022, it was believed that One Piece Odyssey would have a 2022 release date. While January 2023 is a bit later than fans expected, the announced launch doesn't miss the mark by a lot, and many are still excited for the upcoming JRPG. Previously One Piece games have crossed numerous genres, from fighting titles to VR experiences.

However, many have touted the RPG genre of One Piece Odyssey as the perfect game for the series. As well as featuring new characters designed by series creator Eiichiro Oda, One Piece Odyssey will also have its own story designed by him, which sees the Straw Hats transported to a mysterious island. Hopefully, alongside having fights that fans of the anime can enjoy, there will be an intriguing narrative behind this mysterious island and the secrets it holds.

Alongside the reveal of One Piece Odyssey's release date, plenty of other big announcements have been made at this year's Tokyo Game Show. Seeing the return of a physical audience for the first time in a few years, it seems that a lot of gaming companies have brought their best to TGS. Recently, at the Capcom Showcase, fans got a new look at the Resident Evil 4 remake, alongside the upcoming DLC for Resident Evil Village and some Street Fighter 6 gameplay.

One Piece Odyssey will be release on January 13, 2022 for PC, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
