Octopath Traveler gives players eight characters to choose from, feature eight different adventures and eight different roles to be played. The game features strategic turn-based combated with a layered battle system and retro RPG visuals, which stands out among the life-like or hi-def visuals of a lot of newly developed titles.
“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.”
A demo for the game is now available on the Nintendo eShop and will launch on July 13, 2018.
