One of the most anticipated titles by Square Enix is now out in North America and the reviews have been very positive!
Eight travelers. Eight adventures. Eight roles to play in a new world brought to life by Square Enix. And now, you can enjoy all of them in the new demo. Step into the shoes and live the stories of each of the eight travelers and freely explore the world of Orsterra. Then, carry your choices and adventure into the main game with save data transfer.
Use each character’s special abilities in and out of battle. Break through enemy defenses by discovering and targeting weaknesses. Store Boost Points with each turn and then spend them at strategic times to strengthen abilities, chain attacks, or provide aid. Choose the path you wish to walk and discover what lies beyond the horizon.
If you’re a fan of strategic turn based combat, JRPGs, and Square Enix games, this would definitely be worth checking out. Octopath Traveler is currently in my backlog of games along with Ys VIII, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Shining Resonance Refrain. Still waiting on Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger, and a Mario RPG Remake to be on the Switch! It is pretty exciting that the Nintendo Switch is getting more and more titles by the day though!
