Use the Pirate Points you earn to unlock new quests.

The main story isn’t the only attraction in One Piece: Unlimited World R for 3DS. There are a wide-ranging number quests you can take on, as well.

These include collection quests like bug catching and fishing, and beast battle quests, where you’ll take on monsters like “T-Rex,” “Thunder Dragon,” and “Ice Dragon.” Your Pirate Rank will rise as you clear quests, allowing you to challenge greater tasks of higher difficulty.

You can accept quests from Yadoya, a new character original to One Piece: Unlimited World R. Quest difficulty varies, and items are rewarded upon completion. Furthermore, if you clear a quest, you can use the Pirate Points to unlock new quests.

The game also offers a number of mini-games like “Thriller Bark Card Rush” and “Luffy’s Balatier Dinner.” The latter is especially cute, as it features a chibi Luffy running around to catch falling meat and onigiri thrown by Sanji. If he’s hit with a barrel or frying pan, movement will stop, and time will be lost. Like quests, you’ll also earn Pirate Points by playing these mini-games.

Two new videos, showing boss battles against Rob Lucci and Wapol, can be seen below. If videos aren’t your fancy, the game is out today in Japan.
