Square Enix used today’s Nintendo Direct to make some fantastic announcements, and we have them all here for you in one place!

Octopath Traveller 2 announced!

Square Enix used the Nintendo Direct to fully announce Octopath Traveller 2. It will be coming on February 24, 2023 for PS5, PS4, Switch and Steam. Players will choose one of eight completely new characters and set off on an adventure. Along the way, you’ll meet the other seven characters, and maybe even join them on their own adventures too!

If you haven’t played the original, don’t worry, Octopath Traveller 2 isn’t connected. Although we recommend that you do! It is set in the vibrant world of Solistia, which comprises of an eastern and western continent divided by the sea. It’s a bustling era – large vessels navigate busy sea routes and the power of steam gives birth to new technologies. Some people are thrilled by the glamorous stars of the stage, while others are brought to tears by war, plague, and poverty. Take a look at the trailer

Unlike traditional RPGs, you don’t gain strength through battle, but instead by taking on jobs around town. Be it physical labor, secretary work or waiting tables, all the work you do makes you more capable of surviving your journeys into uncharted territory. Although you’ll still have to deal with the elements, hunger, and a few nasty surprises… Trailer:
