One Piece Introduces Odyssey Character With Eiichiro Oda Art

The world of One Piece might be coming to a close with the upcoming final arc of the manga, but the Grand Line and the swashbucklers of the Straw Hat Pirates are still finding their way into a number of different avenues. Such is the case with the upcoming video game, One Piece: Odyssey, in which the Thousand Sunny lands on a mysterious island wherein Luffy and company will encounter an equally mysterious young woman named Lim. Eiichiro Oda, the creator of the series, has shared a new sketch of this new character to One Piece.   

The new character in question, who is set to appear before the Straw Hat Pirates on a mysterious island that the Thousand Sunny lands upon, is named Lim and seems to have unique powers of her own. While it hasn't been confirmed whether she ate a unique Devil Fruit, promotional material has shown Lim creating unique blocks out of thin air that can take on the proportions of energy as well as stone, while also hinting at the idea that she might be able to steal the powers of those around her. Friend or foe, Lim appears to be quite the powerful figure and might not take too kindly to Luffy and company. 

Eiichiro Oda had taken the opportunity to show off the new character that is set to be added to the world of the Grand Line via One Piece: Odyssey, with the mangaka having a heavy hand in creating this new story that will land on a number of consoles: 

The official description for One Piece: Odyssey, which will release at some point this year, reads as such:

"During their voyage, the Straw Hats, led by Monkey D. Luffy are swallowed by a huge storm at sea. They end up on a mysterious island full of nature amidst the storm and become separated from each other. The crew sets out on a new adventurous journey filled with wonders of a raging nature, powerful enemies, and strange encounters with island locals. Work together with Luffy and his crew to set sail once again!"

One Piece: Odyssey will arrive on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC later this year, giving plenty of gamers the opportunity to dive back into the realm of the Grand Line.
