Gameplay - Adventure & Battle

One Piece Odyssey is broadly separated into two components, Adventure and Battle.

'Adventure' consists of exploration of the island setting, where the Straw Hat Pirate's unique abilities - such as Luffy's Gomu Gomu no Mi (Gum-Gum Fruit) powers and Franky's machinery skills - can be used to traverse around various locations.

'Battle' consists of combat based on classic command-based systems while having the Straw Hats play an active role unique to One Piece. By selecting the attack range properly at the start of battle, you can maximize each character's unique abilities and aim for victory. Sometimes during battle, dramatic scenes can occur, which can lead to large bonuses. Additionally, when certain conditions are met, the Straw Hats can unleash Bond Arts to perform combination abilities.
