Square Enix just announced the prequel of 2018 Octopath Traveler RPG, entitled Octopath Traveler: Champions of The Continent. This HD-2D visuals game will be downloadable for smartphones, both iOS and Android as a free-to-play single-player in Japan sometime this year.
Similar with Octopath Traveler (Switch), Octopath Traveler: Champions of The Continent takes place in Orsterra universe several years earlier. The story revolves around three conquerors, with a story that you’ll get to choose. The protagonist is the “chosen one” who will stand up against a great evil that gained fortune, power, and fame. Players will get to decide on which story to start with.
Fans can expect eight character battles with command-based combat, a story that changes up between three champions, and field commands as well. Pre-registration is currently available via the game’s official website for an early-access demo which will go live on March 12.
For those of you familiar with the original Octopath Traveler, the game will have Path Actions to help with gathering information, items, allies, and more.
