Octopath Traveler Finds Its Way To The Switch This Year

Square Enix finally took the word “project” off the front of Octopath Traveler and crowned that the official title for the game before releasing game footage and details for the Nintendo Direct presentation today. Below is the official segment from the video along with the official descriptor info from Nintendo about the game, but at first glimpse, it looks pretty awesome as the character job selection reminds us a bit of Final Fantasy Tactics. The game will officially be released on July 13th, which means we’re probably going to see full demos of it at E3 this year, if not sooner at PAX East now that it’s less than five months away.
