The release of this brand new TCG coincides with the 25th anniversary of the series and was announced during a short trailer.
The Official One Piece Card Game Website gives very little away, however we can give you a breakdown of what we know so far:
The One Piece Trading Card Game will launch with four starter decks themed after four groups from the series including the Straw Hats, the Worst Generation, Animal Kingdom Pirates, and the Seven Warlords of the Sea. The first series of booster packs will be titled titled “Romance Dawn” after the first chapter of the manga.
The trading card game is set to launch in Japan during July 2022, with a English release to follow later in the year (Date to be confirmed).
The first set will be feature 12 cards per booster pack and will be paired with official card sleeves.
Series creator and artist Eiichiro Oda had recently shared the following comments in a post about the game,
“A new trading card game is on the way!!! I don’t know much about card games but this is something like Yu-Gi-Oh! right?! They jump out from the cards, yeah?!! I heard they’re going to use illustrations from the original work and release it worldwide. They’re really going all out. And I’ll see it through until the end!! Let’s go, One Piece Card Game!! I can’t wait!
