Nintendo and Square Enix have announced Octopath Traveler 2, the sequel to the highly regarded role-playing game that introduced the world to the lush, retro HD-2D visual style.
The popular Nintendo Switch title first launched in July 2018 and has since garnered critical acclaim for its addictive gameplay and strong narrative elements.
Octopath Traveler 2 Overview
There are eight characters in Octopath Traveler 02 who have unique personalities, job titles, and goals. For example, Agnea is a dancer who wants to become a star and other characters like Partitio want to end poverty.
Each hero has a “Path Action” that you can watch outside the battle to interact with the characters and the game world. The main characters from the original Octopath Traveler 02 have each been given a path action: one for the day, and one for the night.
Square Enix also says that these characters will interact with each other a lot more than the previous one.
