While Octopath Traveler’s mobile-only prequel, Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent, has been out in Japan for a while, it was yet to make its western debut. That will soon change. Square Enix has announced that the game will be releasing for western audiences in the Summer.
Additionally, through their official twitter account, Square Enix also announced that pre-registration for the upcoming game’s closed beta test on Android devices is currently live. While no release date for the same has yet been revealed, those who are interested in checking it out can go over and register themselves on the game’s official page on the Google Play Store.
Octopath Traveler: Champions of The Continent, in case you’re unfamiliar with it, is a JRPG set on the fictional continent of Osterra, serving as the prequel to 2019’s Octopath Traveler.
