Players embark on a journey covering the stories of eight different characters. The turn-based game quickly became a fan favorite with Square Enix having to apologize for the lack of physical copies available. Styled after Medieval Europe, Bravely Default developers Takahashi and Tomoya Asano created characters with different classes, designs, and play bringing along with it a beautiful art style. The various paths players can take allow for hours of exploration in the world of Octopath Traveler. The characters begin in the land of Orsterra believed to be created by thirteen deities. Players must defeat one of these fallen deities Galdera and seal him once again in the afterworld in order to save the universe.
Finally, for those who want to learn more about the Octopath Traveler world, Octopath Traveler – Champions is the mobile game prequel to the main story. Setting the stage for the main game, the mobile version has its own original story and unique characters to play. The game will now be available on Nintendo Switch, PC, Stadia, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
