Octopath Traveler II has been announced at the recent Nintendo Direct for the Switch with a February 24th, 2023 release date. The “HD-2D” follow-up to Octopath Traveler will also release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam on the same date.
Watch the announcement trailer below:
The trailer features eight new characters with classes identical to Octopath Traveler‘s—the Warrior, Dancer, Merchant, Scholar, Thief, Cleric, Hunter, and Apothecary—embarking on a journey in the land of Celestia. One new gameplay feature is that, depending on the time of day, each traveler’s Path Actions will vary, allowing for even more options available to you. Peep Square Enix’s blog post for more info!
Octopath Traveler II Screenshots (Updated!)
I’m pretty excited for Octopath Traveler II since I enjoyed every bit of the time I sunk into the first game. I honestly did not expect this title to be announced with Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent having just released a few months ago. If you haven’t played the first game, RPGFan has a review of Octopath Traveler up; now is probably the time before the second title arrives.
