In the event you haven’t been enjoying One Piece video games previous to One Piece Odyssey, you might be questioning if the sport has been dubbed in English. Followers of the Funimation dub would understandably be jazzed to listen to the English voice actors carry out the sport’s enormous quantity of strains, so it’s simple to marvel in the event you’ll have the ability to take heed to them throughout your adventures on Waford and in Memoria. It is a Bandai Namco sport, in any case, and lots of of their titles do characteristic English dubs, comparable to current video games like Tales of Come up and Scarlet Nexus.
One Piece video games localized within the West within the final decade haven’t featured dubs, and as an alternative solely had the unique Japanese voices included. Sadly for followers who desire a dub, One Piece Odyssey can solely be performed with Japanese voices. An interview with the collection producer and sport director relationship again to the discharge of One Piece Burning Blood sheds some gentle as to why that is the case. When requested in regards to the sport solely having Japanese voices, they replied, “We’re localizing the textual content for every nation, however for the voice, we’re solely utilizing Japanese voiceover. The reason being as a result of we wish to produce the unique ambiance of the One Piece collection.”
Is One Piece Odyssey English Dubbed?
That is clearly a little bit of a massaged reply. Dubs price cash and Bandai Namco is conscious that almost all One Piece followers choose the unique Japanese forged, so the corporate clearly doesn’t assume it’s economically viable to allocate funds to dub collection video games. It possible didn’t assist that One Piece Odyssey has what is probably going essentially the most recorded strains out of any sport within the collection, so it’s by no means shocking that the sport wasn’t dubbed in English. Whereas that is possible disappointing for some, I personally don’t blame them, as I’ll take the Japanese forged any day of the week, no matter how good Brina Palencia’s Chopper is.
