Written by Milo Fisher

One Piece has been going for over 15 years now, and yet has never managed to find a video game genre that fit it. The series would often borrow from other franchises for its video game adaptations (see One Piece Pirate Warriors 2) but would never dare to be original. One Piece Unlimited World Red takes a bold step for the franchise by being the first original title to grace a home system, and it does so wonderfully. Read more

Anime inspired dungeon crawlers have had a resurgence in the past few years, with series such as Etrian Odyssey and Shin Megami Tensei leading the pack. However there’s always been a running issue with these games in their accessibility and difficulty, often making it hard for newcomers to get into the genre.
