5 Games Like Octopath Traveler If You’re Looking for Something Similar
Another Square Enix game, Bravely Default takes plenty of cues from Final Fantasy and turns it into its own JRPG masterpiece. This 3DS title follows four friends on a journey to help the Vestal of Wind, Agnes Oblige, to awaken the Four Crystals across Luxendarc. Bravely Default has the makings of a traditional Japanese role-playing game with its turn-based battles and a strong emphasis on its condensed cast, something Octopath Traveler hadn’t exactly dabbled in.
While there are only four characters in the game, Bravely Default does boast a job system with over 20 classes to choose from. Players can freely swap between any class for each character and even assign them skills from other jobs, making for different character builds and abilities. However, what brings Bravely Default and Octopath Traveler together is the BP system. Just like Octopath Traveler, heroes in this game can save up to four turns (or Brave Points) and unleash a flurry of attacks in one go. This also adds another layer of strategy in the combat, forcing players to spend their turns wisely.
Despite the repetitive latter half of the game, Bravely Default comes with plenty of charm packed in its four-man cast. It’s definitely worth taking a look at this title if you are a fan of Octopath Traveler.
