Bandai Namco has announced PS5, PS4 JRPG One Piece Odyssey will receive an expansion in the coming months that brings another mystery to Waford, centred around the Black Cubes. Neither a price nor release date have been revealed yet, but the trailer above provides some more context.
In a separate video, producer Katsuaki Tsuzuki says the DLC will be more focused on combat than the base game was and is designed to be tackled after completing it. Battles will demand a more tactical approach and there will be some new special winning conditions. Since some fan complaints centred around how easy the game can be, this will surely be welcome news for those looking to play more One Piece on PS5, PS4. The main theme of the Reunion of Memories expansion is "until stories of bonds between characters", according to Tsuzuki.
"The famous pirates are finally resting after their unbelievable adventures on the island of Waford and in Memoria, the world made of their memories. But as they celebrate their last night together before sailing away, a girl who looks like Lim appears dressed in black clothes with her hood pulled over her face, holding a sinister black cube in hand... but who is she? The Straw Hat Crew will be forced back into Memoria and transported again to Alabasta, although it seems different from last time, and the cube needed to escape has disappeared!"
In our One Piece Odyssey PS5 review, we gave the game an 8/10 and shared praise for its combat system, exploration options, and somewhat welcoming design for franchise newcomers. "Its combat system remains incredibly enjoyable throughout, and new mechanics provide depth and strategy in droves. Most certainly the highlight of the experience, but with fun exploration to boot, you're always assured of a good time. One Piece Odyssey plays a lot like Dragon Quest XI, and it's not that far off being just as good as it."
