A new commercial for the One Piece JRPG — One Piece Odyssey is out a week before the official release of the game.

The game will launch on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Xbox Series X|S on January 12, 2023, and on Steam on January 13, 2023. A demo version of One Piece Odyssey will be released for PlayStation on January 10, 2023. You will be able to carry over your progress in this demo to the full game.

The commercial depicts a tired Junki Tozuka, best known for playing Shunpei Nara from the Kamen Rider series — Kamen Rider Wizard, coming back home after work to find a package in his mailbox.

He finds a copy of One Piece Odyssey in the package, so he connects his PS5 and starts the game. As he starts playing, he gets immersed in the world of One Piece. Nostalgia hits him hard as he starts tearing up playing the game.

The live-action commercial is accompanied by an orchestral arrangement of the first theme song from the One Piece anime — “We are.”

Here is the commercial released by the production team on the Bandai Namco Entertainment Youtube channel:

Photo Rally Event
