Switch JRPG Octopath Traveler Rated For PC
According to the Korean Ratings Board, Switch exclusive Octopath Traveler will be ported to PC soon.
It seems like Acquire and Square Enix’s JRPG Octopath Traveler will eventually be ported to PC. According to Gematsu, Octopath Traveler was rated by the Korean Ratings Board on PC. Games which get rated this way usually are properly officially announced a few days later. Meaning there’s a very high chance Square Enix will announce that a port of Octopath Traveler is coming to PC. The game is currently a Switch exclusive.
The rating lists Bandai Namco as the game publisher. Bandai Namco handles the publication of Square Enix titles in South Korea.
Octopath Traveler launched on Nintendo Switch worldwide on July 2018 and was a massive critical and commercial success. You can check our review to learn more about it. A rearranged version of the game’s OST was also released last March.
Square Enix also recently revealed Octopath Traveler Champions of the Continent, a prequel to the original game. While the game is for mobiles and has microtransactions, it’s described as a “single-player RPG” meaning it’s closer to a traditional RPG than the usual mobage. The game has three different stories to start with. We’ve detailed them along with the game’s artwork. Champions of the Continent‘s first closed test was already held with 1600 selected players, from March 26 to April 2. You can find some gameplay videos by looking for it on YouTube. Champions of the Continent wasn’t announced outside Japan but Square Enix usually brings over their mobile games, so there’s a high chance it will be released in the west.
When revealing Octopath Traveler Champions of the Continent, Square Enix also already announced that Acquire is working on a new Octopath Traveler console game, and that fans should play the mobile game for the time being.
