ONE PIECE: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition brings that level of quality to the video game realm with a game-exclusive storyline and original characters designed by Eiichiro Oda, the creator of ONE PIECE.
In ONE PIECE: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition, players will join the Straw Hat pirate crew as they set their sights for the Forgotten Island with their new mysterious raccoon friend Pato. After landing on the island the Straw Hat pirates are kidnapped by The Red Count; a powerful pirate who escaped the depths of Impel Down, an infamous underwater maximum-security prison for the most dangerous criminals in the world.

Players will be able to use local co-op mode to play story mode missions and side quests with a friend or battle bosses together in Battle Coliseum. Players will be able to select from a large roster of popular ONE PIECE characters, each with their own unique attacks which fans of the show will instantly recognize.
