One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition announced for the Switch, out in August in Japan

It’s now been more than two months since the Nintendo Switch launched, and Bandai-Namco still doesn’t have a single game on the platform (not even a digital title). And it’s only on Monday, in the latest issue of Jump magazine, that the company is finally going to announce their very first game for the Nintendo Switch.

That game is none other than One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition, an enhanced port of One Piece: Unlimited World Red (originally released on Nintendo 3DS, and then Wii U). It will be released on August 24th in Japan, and will cost 4 800 Yen (+ taxes), with a special introductory price for the download version.

Very little is known about this version of the game, just that it will offer 2 player co-op (offline only, unfortunately), and that it will include all the DLC released for the previous version. We can probably expect some (minor) graphical updates, too.

Here’s a first scan for the game, from Jump magazine:

We can expect more details and proper pictures (maybe even a trailer) on Monday!

One Piece: Unlimited World Red Deluxe Edition (Switch) will be released on August 24th in Japan. Since the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U did make it outside Japan, it’s likely that this enhanced port will also make it to Europe and North America. The Upcoming Releases page has been updated!
