This year's 44th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced on Monday that Bandai Namco Entertainment's previously announced One Piece Grand Cruise VR game for the PlayStation VR will launch in Japan in 2018.
In the VR project, players will join the Straw Hat crew as a pirate-in-training on a certain voyage on the Thousand Sunny. Players will be able to interact with the members of the Straw Hat crew and will fight against the Marines.
The game has a demo experience that started in July inside the Tokyo One Piece Tower theme park. The demo is ongoing and features eight-person co-op play.
