Hiroaki Ochiai, Senior VP of IP Strategy at Namco Bandai Europe, had this to say about One Piece Unlimited World Red:
As one of the most successful manga we ever witnessed, One Piece is a phenomenon that deserves AAA adaptations. We decided to team-up with Ganbarion to create a new opus for the Unlimited series. Thanks to their expertise, we are sure to have an amazing game where all the details from the One Piece universe will be perfectly pictured. On top of that, we are really proud and happy to have a never-before-seen scenario for this game!
