I don't know anything about manga, so don't expect some sort of expert analysis or even a hilariously irreverent quip. What I do know is that ONE PIECE is a big deal to a certain group of people, so no doubt ONE PIECE: Romance Dawn is a big deal to gamers within that certain group of people.
Anyway, Namco has announced that ONE PIECE: Romance Dawn will hit the 3DS, both digitally and physically on February 11 of next year if you live here in the "Americas."
Should you choose to go the physical media route, then you'll want to know that at GameStop, Club Namco, and EB Canada you'll be able to pick up a special limited edition with Holographic Foil packaging.
