Octopath Traveler Prequel Announced, Heading to iOS and Android

Octopath Traveler, the critically acclaimed turn-based RPG that released on the Nintendo Switch previous year is getting a prequel, this time on mobile. We don't even know much about it, just that it will be another Octopath Traveler game, and will be coming out for consoles. It takes place in Orsterra, and is a free-to-play RPG featuring eight-character party battles and lets you follow the story of one of three reigning champions.

Beyond that, it also appears that another console title for the series is on its way. According to the first trailer above, the artwork will look remarkably similar to the Switch title, although the gameplay will be optimized for touchscreens.

For a great game, it deserves more support.

Octopath Traveler mobile game prequel headed to iOS & Android

In addition to this mobile game, the Japanese Octopath Traveler Twitter page also recently revealed that a new console game in the series is now being developed, but that it probably won't release for quite some time. Hopefully, with the success of the game in North America, Square Enix will eventually release it here. Once again there will be eight stories to explore (with more content planned after launch) and the game will apparently remain a single-player experience. In addition, Square Enix will be taking applications on March 12 for players to gain access to an exclusive early demo.

The second of the two new Octopath Traveler games is another game set in the same universe, though whether it's a sequel or something else remains to be seen.

Square Enix has hinted that a second Octopath is in development for consoles, but in the meantime the company has also announced that it'll be launching a smartphone prequel to Octopath Traveler this year, at least in Japan.
