Square Enix has unveiled a new main story trailer for Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent, introducing players to Arguste, a dastardly “playwright” set to the pursuit of “Glory” through rampant fame, at any and all costs. Arguste is one of three main villains within Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent, alongside fellow cads Helminia and Titus, who both seek to attain “Wealth” and “Power” respectively, their stories intertwined with those who fight against them. Check out Arguste’s trailer below!
Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent will release as a free-to-play mobile title, acting as a prequel to Octopath Traveler which saw the stories of eight unique protagonists blend together in a continent-spanning journey. Within Champions of the Continent, players will be able to choose one of three stories, their main narrative conceit to oppose the villains detailed above through turn-based battles reminiscent of its predecessor (or… successor?). Personally, I enjoyed Octopath Traveler immensely and lauded most of what it had to offer throughout its playtime—as did our staff—and I fervently hope that Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent will bring that same level of pedigree, warmth, and depth to its tale.
Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent will release on Android and iOS in Japan on October 28th. A Western release date has not been announced as of this writing. Stay tuned to RPGFan for all news Octopath Traveler!
