To kick off this limited-time crossover, Square Enix released this event launch trailer:
I haven’t played Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent, but this trailer is definitely tempting me. RPGFan’s Sam-James Gordon got a kick out of the game’s visuals, story, and characters. Seeing the NieR: Automata crew in Octopath’s trademark HD-2D graphics style wowed me, especially against the backdrop of NieR: Automata’s epic soundtrack.
