The really short gameplay clip shows hero Luffy running around an island, climbing and searching for treasure chests. We can also see him battling in what appears to be turn-based combat. Bandai Namco is describing the game as follows:
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!
