Octopath Traveler is a turn-based RPG developed by Square Enix and Acquire exclusively for Nintendo Switch. The game uses a curious combination of 16-bit aesthetics and modern visual effects like bloom that the developer calls “HD-2D”.
The game features eight playable adventurers (hence “Octopath”) such as Warrior, Merchant, Apothecary, or Dancer, each with their own unique ability that can be used in battles or when interacting with NPCs, and a distinct story to follow. The path the player pursues is said to determine where their adventure ends.
As depicted above, pre-ordering Octopath Traveler through GameStop nets you a character card and a sheet of stickers.
The $99.99 Wayfarer’s Edition comes with the following extras:
- An 8-page pop-up book with item compartments
- A two-sided cloth map of Orsterra, the game’s world
- Octopath Traveler Sound Selections CD
- Replica of a Leaf Coin, the in-game currency
Octopath Traveler is set to launch on July 13, 2018.
