Japan is one of the most important markets of the video game industry as they are part of its DNA. Another week the Japanese field comes to show that it is dominated by Nintendo. Sony also achieves some big sales in the Japanese country, while Microsoft has achieved good numbers in a few weeks.

What do we think of One Piece Odyssey?
In the writing of 3DJuegos we have been fortunate enough to play this work a lot, and in the analysis of One Piece Odyssey we define it as follows: “One Piece Odyssey can boast of being the most ambitious title of the last times of this famous series. And to this is added a visual section of the most interesting. The adventure becomes enjoyable and entertaining, there is no doubt about that, but it is also true that it lacks a greater depth, originality and spark to stand out”, pointed out our colleague Sergio Martín.
