Square Enix today (18th September) announces that its upcoming smartphone game “Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent” (OCTOPATH TRAVELER 大陸の覇者) will release on 28th October 2020. A new trailer is streamed for the announcement.
The official site also updated an Instruction Manual and Traveller List for players to learn more about the world of “Octopath Traveler: Champion of the Continent.”
The game is set several years before the journey of the eight heroes (i.e this is a prequel).
Orsterra, a land dominated by those with Wealth, Power and Glory. Their greed and desire have plunged the world into a bottomless pit of darkness. But within this darkness, there are those who stand to fight against it.
You are a “chosen of the ring” (指輪に選ばれし者), travel the world and find those who stand against the darkness. Journey on and forge the legend of the champion of the land.
The game continues the series’ traditional JRPG gameplay. Similar to the original game, this prequel will feature a pixel art graphic style with 3DCG effects. Players can explore the “HD-2D” rendered world of Octopath Traveler before the events of the original game.
Pre-registration now reaches 500,000. A new 600,000 pre-registration goal is revealed while players will have the opportunity to take home JPY$30,000 Amazon Gift Code and the “Octopath Traveler” Switch game as presents. Players can pre-register the game via Twitter, LINE, and email.
