Namco Bandai Games has been touting One Piece: Romance Dawn for a Winter 2012 release in Japan. Starting next week this will all likely change as the up-coming Shonen Jump, issue 42, will reveal the exact release date – December 20, 2012!
While Japan’s release is dated, no plans have even been mentioned for a North American or European release. It’s possible Luffy’s first PSP adventure may be a Japanese one only.
One Piece: Romance Dawn is a command based RPG for the Sony PSP. It will follow the One Piece manga story all the way from the beginning in East Blue. Players will be able to adventure through the One Piece world, engaging in battle to gain experience and improve abilities such as speed, defense, and attack strength.
