One Piece: Unlimited World Red

Namco Bandai has released new screenshots and artwork of One Piece: Unlimited World Red introducing game-original characters Pato and The Red Count.

Here are their descriptions:

  • Pato is a cheerful, yet mysterious, raccoon, who possesses shadowy power to create anything drawn onto a leaf. In order to help their new friend, the Straw Hat Pirates agree to assist Pato on an ambiguous mission “to meet someone;” Pato then leads the crew to the Forgotten Island where all the Straw Hat Pirates except Luffy are successively kidnapped by a wicked pirate known as The Red Count.
  • The Red Count is a wicked pirate who had escaped the lower depths of Impel Down two years ago. With Pato’s help, Luffy must fight to recover his crew from the enemy’s grasp and find out exactly what The Red Count’s evil plots are…

One Piece: Unlimited World Red is due out for PlayStation 3, Wii U, PS Vita, and 3DS later this year. View the screenshots at the gallery.

    Red Count reminds me of Caesar Clown for some reason.

    So with a real raccoon as a new character, are other characters going to stop confusing Chopper with one? :p

    • Zancrow

      I’m pretty sure this is a Tanuki or Raccoon Dog and not a Raccoon.
      Can’t call a Zebra a Horse either. Well, not the best example, but still.

      • DarthBrian

        The joke is they call Chopper a Tanuki as well and in English they translate it as a raccoon.

        Same joke, different cultures.

        • Zancrow

          Yeah, I know. Here in Germany they call him a fucking badger. Drives me mad.
          Raccoon makes more sense, but still, a raccoon dog is a thing and not only in Japan, so they could easily call him that. But no, don’t want to confuse people with “foreign” animals.
          Meh, I just don’t like that approach to translation. Why not educate people at the same time?

    I’m not far into the New World episodes of One Piece, but is this game supposed to be based off of the arcs so far or is it a game with an original story?

    • InfernoCommander

      Takes place in the new world so you’ll be playing with the Time Skip versions, other than that this is an original story.

  • I-Cronus-I

    Red Count?! I thaught his name is Redfield or are we talking about different persons?!

  • Elvick

    Do we know who is making the other versions?

  • Learii

    these 2 not in the anime are they?

    • I-Cronus-I

      No, both are game exclusives.

      • Learii

        ok thx
