Will One Piece Get A Fighting Game Soon? If It’s Up To One Piece Producer Nakajima, Then Yes
In an interview with Siliconera, a specific question and answer stand out among the rest. When asked about what type of game Koji Nakajima (producer of One Piece: Unlimited World Red over at Bandai Namco Games), he answered with this:
I’ve made lots of One Piece games. Right now, I would like to make a fighting game that puts all of the Devil Fruit abilities and Haki in the spotlight. If I could make a fighting game, I would want it to capture the flashiness of the Devil Fruit abilities like how [Admiral] Aokiji uses ice and can create it at will.
Could we finally see a One Piece fighting game coming to our home consoles soon? With Naruto and it’s Ultimate Ninja series, and Dragon Ball Z with it’s yearly games, one can only hope that One Piece can join into the battle with something fresh and new, but also deep and entertaining.
