Octopath Traveler Keeps Name, Launches July 13
During yesterday's Nintendo Direct, upcoming Square Enix RPG Octopath Traveler was shown, and it will launch on July 13, 2018, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
Two new characters in the game were also introduced: Tressa the merchant and Alfyn the apothecary. Tressa has the special ability to purchase items from various NPCs, while Alfyn can question NPCs and gain information from them that other characters can't. Every character in the game has a main class as their job but can be given an extra job as well to create different combinations.
Additionally, a special collector's edition of the game was revealed. This special edition will include a soundtrack, a pop-up book featuring all eight main characters, and a special coin.
Octopath Traveler will release exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on July 13, 2018. A demo version of the game is available for download on the Nintendo Switch eShop but may not be indicative of the final product, as various changes and improvements have been made since.
