Square Enix has released a new video for its recently-announced RPG Octopath Traveler 2. The video, shown off during Tokyo Game Show, features 20 minutes of gameplay. Check it out below (starts at 25:40).
The video provides a great, in-depth look at a bit of early-game gameplay. It also indicates that the widely-praised art style will be returning, along with new features such as a fast travel system and dynamic camera angles for particularly strong attacks during combat.
Octopath Traveler 2 was announced earlier this month during a Nintendo Direct presentation. It will feature eight new characters with new stories intersecting with each other. The game’s story will be set in a new era, as well as a new world.
Japanese composer Yasunori Nishiki revealed that he is working on Octopath Traveler 2‘s soundtrack. Nishiki has worked on the music for Octopath Traveler, as well as its mobile spinoff Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent. Other games he has worked on include Gravity Rush 2, Kingdom Hearts 3, and Final Fantasy 7 Remake, among others.
Octopath Traveler 2 is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch on February 24, 2023.
