In the realm of Square Enix properties, many fans in recent years fell in love with the nostalgic callback to its original Final Fantasy games. But, its not directly with the remasters that released before. It’s with Octopath Traveler: the new IP welcomes the same pixelated art style combined with 3D landscape overlays which adds its own charm to the formula.

Additionally, the approach went so much to expand to another project, Triangle Strategy. The game went on to release this past March for Nintendo Switch adding more flavor to this growing subgenre. Not only that, but there is a Octopath Traveler mobile title which acts as a prequel as well for the franchise.

Now on Tuesday, Square Enix announced Octopath Traveler II is launching on Nintendo Switch this February. You can watch the reveal trailer in the video below:

“In the world of Solistia, eight new travelers venture forth into an exciting new era. Where will you go? What will you do? Whose tale will you bring to life? Every path is yours to take. Embark on an adventure all your own,” the description reads from the Nintendo eShop. “Begin your adventure as one of eight new travelers, each with their own origins, motivations, and unique skills. The series’ HD-2D graphics, a fusion of retro pixel art and 3DCG, have reached even greater heights.

“The story takes place in Solistia, where diverse cultures thrive from east to west and the industries of the new era flourish. You can sail the seas and explore every corner of a world that changes from day to night. Each traveler has a unique set of Path Actions they can use to battle townspeople, obtain items, take others along in their travels, and more. Where will you go? What will you do? Every path is yours to take.

“Familiar mechanics from the original game have been preserved, like the freedom to develop your travelers’ jobs and skills, as well as the Break and Boost system that made battles so exhilarating. New mechanics have also been added.” Are you excited for Octopath Traveler II?

Octopath Traveler II launches February 24, 2023 for Nintendo Switch.
