Octopath Traveler is Getting Its First Live Concert
Octopath Traveler Break, Boost and Beyond live concert to be held in Tokyo on July 28, 2019.
Square Enix announced the first ever concert for Octopath Traveler, titled Octopath Traveler Break, Boost and Beyond. It’ll be held in Tokyo at Olympus Hall Hachioji, on July 28. The concert will include the new arrangements from the OST “Arrangements – Break & Boost” which released this February, along with completely new arrangements specifically made for the concert. A logo for the concert was published as well, which you can see above. There’s no word from Square Enix yet if this concert could be coming west or not.
More information like the concert’s duration and the price of the tickets will be announced at a later date on the Octopath Traveler Break, Boost and Beyond official page.
Octopath Traveler‘s soundtrack is one of the most praised aspects of the game, so it’s unsurprising to see Square Enix capitalizing on it. The Switch old school RPG, developed by Acquire, has been receiving tons of praise around the world, and the game’s sales followed as well. Personally speaking, I’m not too fond of the game though, besides the excellent battle system.
Octopath Traveler is also getting a mobile prequel titled Octopath Traveler Tairiku no Hasha, which could be translated to “Champions of the Continent“. The game uses an 8 characters party system but is quite close to the original, despite being for mobiles. It also has three different stories to start from, which you can read about in detail in a previous article. Octopath Traveler Champions of the Continent is scheduled to release in 2019 in Japan but wasn’t announced in the west yet. As a first playtest was conducted with 1600 players, you can already find gameplay on YouTube.
Acquire and Square Enix also already confirmed a new console Octopath Traveler is coming. Lastly, there’s a fairly high chance Square Enix will announce a PC port of Octopath Traveler in the next few days.
