In One Piece: Unlimited World R, Trance Town won’t be fully developed from the start. It’s up to players to cultivate the town with shops and facilities.
For example, the medicine shop first appears as a boarded up, sign-less building. But by talking to townsfolk, collecting the necessary materials, and putting everything in order, players can open this indispensable shop for business.
Of course, the medicine shop isn’t the only store you can open. Other facilities ready for development include a workshop, museum, restaurant, and general store.
There are various ways to collect materials, which appear necessary for opening these establishments. These include creature and bug catching, fishing, and harvesting plants. Some materials are only available to specific characters.
This is also a four-person multiplayer game. So when out adventuring with friends, specific combinations of characters can perform co-op attacks. Various arrangements of characters can also perform a “Trinity” co-op attack. These should be useful when fighting against boss characters like Crocodile and Enel.
One Piece: Unlimited World R is due out for 3DS in Japan on November 21. View a new set of screenshots at the gallery.
