Even more exciting, fans of ONE PIECE can develop their favorite characters with special scene cards from the anime storyline. ONE PIECE Thousand Storm stars all your favorite Straw Hat Pirates from the exciting “2 Years Ago” and “New World” story arcs. Relive the adventure, and sail through the universe of ONE PIECE!
The game adopts the bottom to top “Endless Runner” view approach. Combat and movements are mostly automated but you’re still able to direct your characters to avoid dangers and cast skills to quickly take down approaching enemies.
Unlike most Gacha games, Players do not need to gacha for Characters but instead gacha for Scene Cards that will give your characters Abilities and Stats. Players can collect character tokens through events or story quest to summon or evolve your characters.
Although the game did went down for bug fixing prior to the official launch, the game is still taking quite some time to load for certain menus and during combat. Also, connections are not quite stable in co-op play. Bandai have already acknowledge the issue and hopefully they’ll be able to fix it soon. For now, enjoy the compensations!
