One Piece: Romance Dawn Game Ad Centers on Zoro
posted on by Egan Loo
Namco Bandai Games began streaming the next weekly commercial for the upcoming PSP "pirate romance" role-playing game One Piece Romance Dawn: Bōken no Yoake on Monday. The video centers on the Straw Hat Pirates' master swordsman Zoro. It also includes the game's theme song "Eternal Waves," the new track from the same Triplane band that performed the One Piece anime's ending theme song "Dear friend."
As the title indicates, the game begins with the "Romance Dawn" arc of the manga, at the "dawn" of pirate Luffy's adventures in the East Blue. It will feature 30 minutes of brand-new anime footage, some of which appears in the commercial.
Namco Bandai Games will release the game in Japan on December 20 on both UMD and through digital download for 5,980 yen (about US$77). Those who pre-order the game will receive nine custom PSP themes of the Straw Hat Pirates' wanted posters, a map for the special quest with Kuzan (Aokiji) as seen in One Piece Film Z, and a serial code for obtaining a limited figure in the Mobage One Piece Grand Collection game.
Sony Computer Entertainment Japan will also offer a black One Piece Romance Dawn: Bōken no Yoake Straw Hat Pirates Edition PSP system with gold symbols of the Staw Hat Pirate Flag and the individual members on the back.
