One Piece is teasing new anime, manga, movie and video game announcements for the 25th anniversary of its original debut. According to the official website for the event, the producers will hold a special live stream on July 22 – 23 to mark the 25th anniversary of the publication of the manga’s first chapter. The site states that the live stream will offer “Everything One Piece in one place.” The teaser image, which features a new painting of central protagonist Monkey D. Luffy, also lists the companies that will take part in the event: Shueisha, the Japanese publisher of One Piece and the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine; Toei Animation, the studio that produces the One Piece anime; Bandai Namco, the company that publishes all of the franchise’s video games; and finally, Toho Co. Ltd., the distributor of the series’ animated movies.
The live stream will be broadcast on the series’ official YouTube channel. Additional details, such as the specific time on July 22 that the stream will begin, will be announced at a later date. It’s currently unknown what else the series has left to announce, as the franchise already has a full slate of new releases: Eiichiro Oda’s original manga is currently on hiatus following the end of the Wano Country arc, but is scheduled to return in a few weeks with the premiere of the manga’s final saga. The next movie in the series, One Piece Film: Red, is scheduled to debut in Japan on Aug. 6. The new movie sees Luffy and company traveling to a new island in order to attend a famous music festival. The film will feature new costumes for the Straw Hat Pirates and will also introduce a new major character, Uta, a young singer who is actually the estranged daughter of Luffy’s mentor, Red-Haired Shanks.
Finally, Bandai Namco is planning to release One Piece Odyssey, a new RPG that gives players control of Luffy and his entire crew, before the end of the year. The game is being developed by ILCA, the studio behind the remakes Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and will be available on the Sony PlayStation 4, PS5, Microsoft Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and Windows PCs. The One Piece TV anime is available for streaming on Crunchyroll, with select seasons and movies available on Netflix. Oda’s original manga is available in English from publisher VIZ Media.
