Today Square Enix released a new commercial of its upcoming Nintendo Switch-exclusive JRPG Octopath Traveler.

Being a commercial, even if destined to the web and not TV, the video is rather brief, and talks about the meaning of playing a role and going on an adventure. Interestingly, it’s in English, even if the video comes from the publisher’s Japanese arm.

It’ll be interesting to see if this title will manage to conquer the hearts of JRPG fans all over the world, but for now, it’s certainly promising, especially due to the intriguing focus on actual role-playing.

You can check out the video below and see if it entices you. If you want to see more about Octopath Traveler, you can also enjoy a recent trailer and a batch of screenshots showing characters H’aanit the hunter and Therion the thief.

Octopath Traveler will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch on July 13th, 2018. You can already pre-order the game on Amazon.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
