Octopath Traveler - mobile prequel

Square Enix has announced a mobile prequel to the Nintendo Switch JPRG, Octopath Traveler.

Octopath Traveler: Tairiku no Hasha – which translates as Champions of the Continent – is a single player RPG featuring a new story, and a brand new cast of eight characters.

According to a feature in the latest issue of Famitsu – helpfully translated by Twitter user @RyougaSaotome –  the game will be on rails, and will not feature multiplayer elements. A full story is promised for all eight characters, and each one will have a ‘proper ending’. This addresses complaints directed at last year’s game, which, for all of its ambition, failed to conclude the tales of its eight characters to the satisfaction of many players.

The first trailer shows the game in action. The HD-2D art style is as beautiful as ever, and reveals some of the game’s new locations.

Octopath Traveler: Tairiku no Hasha is set for release in Japan in 2019. If you’re interested, and can read Japanese, you can pre register now at the official website.

At the time of writing there’s no word on a Western release date, or if it will come to the Nintendo Switch.
