During the Nintendo Switch Presentation there was a short video announcing a new Japanese RPG from Square Enix called Project Octopath Traveler. I’m not sure who comes up with these names, but from the looks of the game, sign me up! At first glance I thought maybe we were getting a Final Fantasy VI (III on the SNES) remake, but this is actually an all-new game.
Not a whole lot is known about the title yet. It’s unclear if it will be arriving this year or if it will be on a Game Card or digital only. I’m hoping that since Bravely Default games have made it out on cartridge that this one will too. It’s nice that preview video is voiced in English, since that gives me more certainty of the game being released in North America.
Square Enix just opened the teaser site for the game. They don’t offer any new information up, but it’s worth visiting just to sit and listen to the background music.
