Hmmmm, what do we think of this, then? One Piece: World Seeker has looked reasonably promising in its last few trailers, but the anime-based title's looking a bit rough in this pre-release gameplay footage. Posted online by YouTube user Cerealkillerz this is 26 minutes of uncut open world action.
Parts of it look decent enough, like aspects of the combat, the environments, and the visuals in general, but it's all a bit... Janky. We can't help but feel that the camera is way too close to Luffy, and most of the dialogue scenes are barely voiced. Perhaps more worrying is how lifeless the open world itself appears to be. There's a potion of the video where Luffy is running through a built up area, but there are almost no NPCs. There's no music, either, making the whole thing seem awkwardly eerie.
Following on from the lacking release of Jump Force, we feel like this is a game that Bandai Namco has to get right, and honestly, it's not looking especially great right now. We're hoping that this footage isn't fully indicative of the finished product -- which is due out on the 15th March -- but we're more concerned for its quality having watched this.
How do you think it looks? Please don't try to copy Luffy's moves in the comments section below.
lets just hope CC2 do a good job on Dragon Ball Project Z then
Reminds me of Gravity Rush but without the Gravity..... or the rush.....
Is like everytime when Bandai announces an anime game that isn't Dragonball, Naruto or SAO, there's a good chance that the finished products won't be as polished as the trailers shown us.
I’m honestly sick of all these Shonen Jump games being done by Namco. That Fist of the North Star game by Sega are games I can get down with.
Man Namco hasn't released a good anime game in a long long while.
on a side note the PS4 has been out for years and this idiot STILL hasn't figured out how to turn off that recording blocked notification?
it is one of the single most annoying things when playing a game on PS4 and why anyone still has it on is baffling
It literally takes a full 15 seconds to interact with a door.
I love One Piece, but I’ve had reservations about this one for a while now. I’m convinced, probably not picking it up.
Yeeaahhh, that looks pretty lackluster, especially for a fully priced $60 release.
One of the problems with games like GoW pushing the envelope so far is that midtier games like this seem archaic by comparison. For example, KH1's one and only town has just 3 NPCs plus 3 shopkeepers and seems like a ghost town. KH2 has Twilight Town which was made up of about 5 almost entirely empty areas.
That seemed to be acceptable then, and a lot of these anime games are stuck in the PS2 era; they even look like PS2 games that have been given a slight facelift. It's bad but my point is that it was the norm in the 2000s but since then there are so many games that do this much better, all huge budget AAA games, mind, so this just seems terrible now.
Really hope they don't rush Dragon Ball Project Z. It's not like there's a rush to get it out soon, dragon ball won't disappear out of the collective consciousness anytime soon.
@FullbringIchigo the notification doesn't bother me lol
Did anybody actually watch the vid? Clearly not the author... he says "where are all the people?" The mission is find the door with a person behind it... which required him to stand near them and use his ability to try and detect where someone could be hiding... like pay attention before you write some irresponsible stuff like this... posts like this influence people's support of a game!
