The new Octopath Traveler is truly ready and arrives tomorrow

There is little to discuss about the original Octopath Traveler : we are talking about a turn-based JRPG that, taking as a reference Final Fantasy VI – not exactly the last of the class – was able to offer a truly valid experience for lovers of classic titles, accompanying to an intriguing combat system an art direction with an HD-2D to make you wrinkle your eyes.

That’s why the arrival of Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent is especially awaited by those who loved the original game. Initially released in 2020, but only in Japan, this prequel to the first Octopath Traveler is intended for Android and iOS , so you can play it comfortably on your smartphone.

Until today, the possibility to download the game in advance was available on the Play Store and AppStore respectively, but it has been confirmed when it will be unlocked, ie on July 27, tomorrow . This means that there is very little to get your hands on this JRPG, which in Japan has enjoyed some success.

Square Enix describes Champions of the Continent as “a new story unfolding in the world of Orsterra! Enjoy high-quality graphics, immersive combat and Octopath Traveler -like storytelling in this mobile-optimized prequel ».

The game, we read, will have a combat with parties of up to eight members , with controllers improved for mobile and for swiping on the touchscreen, so that the selection of commands is particularly quick. There will be 64 characters from launch and we can imagine that – between some gacha mechanics and in-game purchases – this will continue to rise. “Choose the right team for the right battle and reign victorious on the battlefield,” recommend the authors.

As in Octopath Traveler ( which you find on Amazon ), we learn, the characters will also have unique interaction skills that could change the way you explore: some will be able to obtain extra information, others will hire people to help the party momentarily, others threaten them to obtain what they want.

 

To crown the project is the fact that Yasunori Nishiki is back as composer of the soundtrack , after the excellent work in Octopath Traveler – of which you can find the review here .

So let’s wait to see what the welcome in Europe will be for Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent , with the release that is expected on the stroke of 27 July in UTC time, that is 2.00 in the morning in Italy, as anticipated by Play Store .
