The game has been available in Japan for a little while, so this will be the global launch of Bon! Bon! Journey!! We’re not exactly short of match-3 games at the moment though, so how popular this will prove to be may depend on the amount of love for One Piece.
The looks to be a quite simple match-3 battler. There will be a board filled with little bonbon versions of One Piece characters where you’ll have to swipe to match up at least three of them. Doing so makes them fall out of the grid as though they’ve dropped from a vending machine before then flinging themselves at the enemy you’re facing.
It all looks very cute and there will also be several skills that you can make use of when you’ve met certain criteria as well. As you battle your way through the level you’ll be able to watch little scenes from the series that have been recreated in bonbon form.
Beyond that, you’ll also be able to create your own bonbon island by collecting the different characters that are on offer. You can buy different buildings and stuff to create your own little village which your bonbons will then populate when you’re not embroiled in match-3 madness.
One Piece Bon! Bon! Journey!! will be available on the App Store and Google Play, though there is currently no set release date other than the year 2020. You can currently pre-register your interest over on the official site. The game will be a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
