While the game seems exciting and massive, the idea of a manga story coming to gaming platforms makes it even more thrilling. The conceptualization, as well as planning, is underway but it's also the adaptation of the manga's features to the game that is taking up so much time such as the transfer of music from the series to the PS4 platform.

The participation of One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda is also hailed as an integral part in the development of the game. His notes and ideas will be well included in the game for both gaming platforms. In case you are not familiar with 'One Piece,' the manga series, it is written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda and is serialized by the Weekly Shonen Jump since 1997. Since then, combined chapters of the series has a total of 85 volumes.
