4Kids Entertainment, who at the time was the company who owned the dub rights, and Bandai never brought this game to America, but the graphics and sprites were reused in the American only Shonen Jump's One Piece for the Game Boy Advance.
The gameplay is almost the same as the Playstation games, except unlike the Playstation games, the gameplay in this game is more simple. This is because this game featured less special and combo moves due to the Wonderswan controls.
The game modes are the same as in Grand Battle! (Event Battle, Grand Battle, Options) plus a Bonus Mode, in where you can see your card collection or play the mini-game (see below).
The game featured a unlockable card collecting system. To collect those cards, the player must accomplish certain task, such as beating the game without continues, etc.
In the 4th stage of Event Battle, the player must play through a bonus game which consists of beating as many Kung Fu Dewgongs as you can within 60 seconds. You can later unlock it as mini-game.
- During the credits, many sprite animations of Carue are seen, however it's not confirmed if he is a playable character or not.
- Many if not all the animations in the game went on to be reused in the GBA One Piece game, along with its music being redone for the said platform.
