Octopath Traveler



All aboard the hype train, this is THE game I'm looking forward to this year, I know Destor and Seph are going to be all over this too. We're looking at a really solid Square Enix JRPG, combat system has elements from all your favourites, unique job classes and intertwining stories abound.

http://images.nintendolife.com/news/...rder/large.jpg

Prologue Demo is available on Switch, which allows you to doss around for 3 hours and carry your progress over if you so desire. I was going to hold out for release but I'm so hype for this I caved and played H'aanit's chapter. She's a gotta catch 'em all style beastmaster / monster hunter, on the search for her missing mentor. H'aanit is really great guys



Probably not going to carry over my progress so I might actually start my proper game with one of the others, undecided if I'm going to delve into any other chapters and keep it all fresh for release. But there is also:

Ophilia - A Cleric on a pilgrimage



Cyrus - A scholar searching for a lost tome



Therion - Sublime master thief doing master thief stuff



Primrose - A dancer on a revenge mission against her father's killers
Olberic - A warrior tracking down a traitor to exact justice



Alfyn - An apothecary on a quest to make his mummy proud



Tressa - A travelling merchant embarking on an adventure



Nice.

Square says this will be 80-100hrs btw.

Also do we play each character and then do like a final chapters or are we just picking our protag? If im picking one to stick with for 100 hours im going with the merchant

Everyone's quest begins in a different village but they're all available no matter who you start as, the Chapter 1 villages are kind of in an O shape so you could go either route and recruit everyone else by finishing their Chapter 1 or ignore them and head straight to your 2nd chapter waypoint. I'm assuming the story bottlenecks and you'll need to progress different stories to a certain point before later chapters unlock (H'aanits chapter 2 recommends you to be level 35, I got to Lv6 by the end of her first chapter) but that's entirely an assumption, you might be able to solo the game, you might be forced to recruit everyone or somewhere in between. In the demo version, whoever you pick as your protagonist can't be removed from your party but no word on if that will change in the full game.

You can play all the openings on one save, when you meet the others you are asked if you would like to jump back to their story from the beginning or you can choose to skip the back story and join in where the action starts.

However, the only way to experience all 8 stories as a solo character seems to be using 8 different save files (demo only provides one slot, can be overwritten though and New Game is always available), so whoever you don't pick as your main will be a lower level but have an easier time on their introduction. H'aanit's first boss was surprisingly tough, but taking it on one on one was pretty satisfying. No word on if you'll be able to switch your protag / leader on the fly, but it would be nice to be able to do each intro chapter solo on the same save file.

Like the next character I've gone to, purely to figure out how that works, is the Thief and it doesn't make any sense why H'aanit, the noble hunter, would want to help this slippery prick she just met break into a mansion and steal treasure. No sense at all

It had GREAT gameplay. Other than some really poor difficulty spikes at least. But the story is like...70% of that game...and that was AWFUL

It became better about halfway through the game.

This game will be fun though. It's sad they have to say it's a complete game but that is the world we live in.

Haven't decided who to actually start with in the full game yet, maybe Ophilia or Tressa, they seem to fit the "sure I'll help you with whatever hijinks you're up to" vibe. On the other hand, anyone helping Therion seems really out of character so maybe he makes more sense as the first. I'm conflicted between playing more prologue chapters to form a better stance on it or just hold out for release and choose on a whim.

Setsuna (and spehere) basically made square realize there was a market for this. So now we should see what a seasoned rpg developer can do with a JRPG in 2018

Decided to try out Ophilia's chapter, I am already tainted so might as well get the most out of buckling early.

Her path seems very Final Fantasy, really enjoyed it. She plays a lot different to H'aanit, you don't feel anywhere near powerful, which is a good sign. Her starter town is also pretty much Irithyll from Dark Souls III and I like that a lot.

Same, I'll probably have played all 8 by release day, from a combination of hype and not wanting to start anything else in my backlog in case I have to abandon it half way.

Finished Olberic, really strong start for him, my only complaint is that he is not voiced by Sean Bean. He's sort of a tank so he's not cut out for solo encounters, despite what his story says. He either needs support or some sort of sustain which I'm assuming he unlocks later. Had the most trouble with his boss of the three I've done, but he comes off as much more of a badass if he's solo.

Again though, he hates bandits and thieves.

I discovered something at the inn in his starting town, unlike the other Inns I've been in (or if they had this I didn't notice), this one had all the options for change party members but also had a feature called "Hear a Tale" which didn't seem to do anything but show a graphic for Olberic. With a little wishful thinking, would be nice if we could use this to change party leader and be able to freely switch to different characters / parties at different parts of the map. It probably does nothing though because that sounds complicated.

Yeah they do, which will give everyone a lot more versatility down the line. I have no idea on when and how. Speculation is there are more than just the 8 starter classes for secondarys too.

Finished all the prologue chapters now, the real wait begins.

Not really going to go into detail on other chapters, but there are three I think make strong starting points and some that definitely feel like you should meet other specific characters first. Then there's Therion, who still feels like he should be forever alone and I'm not sure how he fits.

Olberic is a solid choice, his prologue is the strongest. Cleric or Merchant are the other two choices I like the most as leader.

Anyone but Therion and maybe Alfyn are fine though. Not that Alfyn is bad, he just has the weakest motive.

Primrose has a really good opening chapter too actually, she just doesn't suit being party leader imo. Same with Cyrus to a lesser degree.

Merchant is in the next town over from warrior so you could get them as your first two no trouble.

I'm leaning towards starting as Ophelia because that gives me fast access to H'aanit. Not 100% set on it yet though.

However, I don't own a Switch, so this is relegated to several back burners for me until quite a few preconditions are met in other areas of my life. By that time, this will possibly be a greatest hits title, and be on sale. Maybe. I mean, this is Nintendo, and they like to charge full retail for shit years and years after the fact.
