One Piece: Unlimited World RED is the newest in the game series and a story revolving around the kawii crew member Pato the racoon always referred to as Chopper's family, nope they are not related but both seriously cute !
Pato is harping on about 'meeting someone at the start of the game and crew give a non shalant response of 'see ya later, giveus a shout if you need anything while we'redocking here.' Luffy catapults himself onto the Island without evven saying goodbye, gotta love his priority list. Hoever not much info is given on the new character Pato who possesses the power to create anything drawn onto a leaf.
The whole crew go about their chores or shopping for the ladies and Luffy saves a hottie (as usual) and somewhere in between everyone but Pato and Luffy are kidnapped by a pirate The Red Count. We see a brielf intro on the baddie at the beginning and he is ruthless.It’s up to Luffy not only free his friends, but beat The Red Count, help Pato go on his merry way and help the towns folk with their own problems.
The game follows the ultimate universe third person view and action/RPG gameplay seen previously. The narrative has a great mix of slapstick funny and serious tone at time too however being enjoyable at all times. I never felt ored or like I was in a cycle of grinding mindlessly.
The graphics are impressive especially on the 3DS (platform I played) you had seamless cut scenes integrated within the game play. The 3D was fully shaded, they managed to keep the amusing acial expressions from the anime series on our favourite characters including the love struck Sanji. I felt like I was reading a manga in colour, it was beauty to watch and soak in all the colours.
Once you rescue your crew members you can switch between the 9 characters you want roaming the map and towns, I hardly did this as I took much delight in using Luffy's grapple move to swiftly move around the time. However in fights they all have different special attacks varying from one to one attacks from Luffy or group attacks from Zero (perfect for a ambushed attack).
