Octopath Traveler Is Available on Google Stadia Today
During today's Stadia Connect, Square Enix is bringing its beloved JRPG Octopath Traveler to Google's video game platform today.
Revealed in today’s Stadia Connect, Square Enix’s 2018 RPG Octopath Traveler is now available to purchase on Google Stadia for $59.99.
Initially released as a Nintendo Switch exclusive in July 2018, Octopath Traveler lets players experience the stories of eight unique characters as they struggle to overcome hardships and conflicts in their own lives. Then, a year later, the tale of these eight heroes would make the jump to PC, giving even more players a chance to travel this world. As of March, the game had shipped more than 2 million copies worldwide.
Octopath Traveler is a fantastic homage to the JRPG genre with expertly crafted visuals and soundtrack that fans have fallen in love with. The defining characteristic of the game is its standout visual style that melds the likes of 2D pixel sprite work and the depth of 3D environments, creating a work of art. The combat is a traditional turn-based affair from Square’s olden days, with a deep job system with each job coming with unique abilities, skills, and appearance giving you loads of customization options.
Stadia users who haven’t given this game a shot yet and are fans of the RPG genre should give this game a chance. It is an exceptional example of just how good these sorts of games can be.
