One Piece: World Seeker slips into 2019
The developer needs a little more time, Bandai Namco says.
If you were looking forward to playing One Piece: World Seeker before Santa shimmies down your chimney, well... you're out of luck. Bandai Namco today announced the game's release date has "shifted" to next year. In other words, there has been a delay.
"The development team feels as though a bit more time is needed to reach fan expectations for this ambitious title," Bandai Namco's press release said, by way of explanation.
I don't personally know anyone who was looking forward to the game, but then, I wasn't really even aware it was in the pipeline until I found out today that it had been delayed. Still, delays are always hard for those who are definitely looking forward to something great.
"More information regarding the One Piece World Seeker release date will be made in the future," added the press release.
From what I can tell, One Piece: World Seeker is being developed by a team at Ganbarion, the developer responsible for a few previous One Piece games and also the Nintendo-published (in Japan) Pandora's Tower on Wii. Odds are decent it will be spiffy when it finally arrives. We'll just have to wait a bit longer than expected for that day.
