Bandai Namco has teased One Piece fans for some time now with images and trailers of the PSVR exclusive experience One Piece: Grand Cruise. The company has now given a firm release date in North America and Europe: May 22nd.
As the first One Piece VR experience, Grand Cruise puts you on the deck of the Thousand Sunny ship with the Straw Hat Crew; Luffy, Zoro, Nami, Sanji and many more characters from the show. The experience, which includes activities such as chatting in Chopper’s room and sword training by Zoro, has been available in demos at the Tokyo-based theme park One Piece Tower for the past few months.
Since the release of the English-subbed trailer (linked above and below), it was always suspected that the West would receive One Piece: Grand Cruise, although it’s still uncertain if the experience will be subtitled, or dubbed using the show’s original English voice actors.
According to ShonenGamez, the experience is set to release in Japan May 24th.
