Today Square Enix released a another trailer of its mobile JRPG Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent.
We get to see the story and boss fight focused on August, one of the three main villains featured in the game.
These villains will be featured in three stories which will lead our characters to face off against those who have mastered “wealth,” “fame,” and “power.” August is specifically the master of fame.
You can check out the trailer below. You can also check out the full-size artwork for August himself.
Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent is set a few years before the original Octopath Traveler released for Nintendo Switch and PC, which has now shipped 2 million units on both platforms worldwide.
At the moment, there is no information on whether this mobile prequel will come to the west, but we know it’ll release in Japan in a few weeks, on October 28. It’ll come for both iOS and Android.
Considering how popular Octopath Traveler is, I wouldn’t be surprised if Square Enix decided to localize this game for North America and Europe at some point. They already have quite a few mobile games in English and some of them are fairly successful. That being said, this is just my personal speculation and wishful thinking, so you should take it with a grain of salt.
