Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent is launching on both Android and iOS this year. This immersive mobile RPG experience serves as a prequel to the Octopath Traveler.

Octopath Traveler was first released on Nintendo Switch in July 2018 while the PC version came out in June 2019. A year later a version for Google Stadia was made available with the Xbox One version launched in March 2021. Since its release, the game has sold more than 2.5 million copies around the world and is received “generally favorable."

In the mobile version, players get to experience a new story, set a few years before the events of the first game. Players take on the role of “the Chosen One” as they travel in the world of Orsterra and fight to prevent ruthless tyrants from releasing the bottomless darkness.

Features of the game include:

  • HD-2D: Evolved Pixel Art
    • Enjoy the classic 2D pixel that’s been enhanced with 3D-CG effects.
    • This allows it to bring the world of Orsterra to life.
    • Discover the stylized environments filled with side quests, dangerous bosses, and treasures.
  • Strategic and Exhilarating Combat
    • Experience an evolved command-style battle system, which allows for a team of up to eight members and swipe controls for fast-paced command selection.
  • A Massive Character Roster
    • Select from more than 64 characters already available at launch.
    • Create an endless combination of teams.
    • Customize team builds for each fight and be declared the winner on the battlefield.
  • Unique Interaction Paths
    • Unlock endless possibilities for character interactions.
    • These include the ability to “Inquire” for information, “Entreat” for items, or “Hire” characters for the party.
  • An Epic Game Soundtrack
    • Yasunori Nishiki, the composer behind the Octopath Traveler soundtrack, returns for this latest installment with new compositions.

If you’re interested, the registration for the Closed Beta Test is now open. This is scheduled from March 22 to April 4 for Android devices. To play, the OS must be Android 6.0 or higher with memory (RAM) of at least 2 GB.
