Oc­topath Traveler

Mania - - Hyper Mania -

Game­play: This HUGE RPG ex­pe­ri­ence gives you eight sep­a­rate sto­ries to ex­plore and fight your way through – it’s one of the big­gest games on Switch yet! There are eight dif­fer­ent main char­ac­ters, and each of them is on a sep­a­rate ad­ven­ture. You can move through the mis­sions of Oc­topath Traveler in ba­si­cally any or­der you want, and as you build up your party of char­ac­ters you can take any of them through any other char­ac­ter’s story. It sounds com­pli­cated, but it’s pretty sim­ple in prac­tice, and it means that the game stays su­per in­ter­est­ing be­cause you’re con­stantly hav­ing dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ences! The sto­ries are cool, but we ab­so­lutely love the com­bat – this is one of the best sys­tems we’ve ever seen in a JRPG! It’s re­ally strate­gic, and fig­ur­ing out how to take down each of the game’s su­per-dif­fi­cult bosses is ex­tremely fun! Graph­ics: Oc­topath Traveler’s su­per cool retro style gives us the look of an old-skool 16-bit game with all the bells and whis­tles of a mod­ern ti­tle! The sprite art is fan­tas­tic, and we love the huge, beau­ti­ful en­vi­ron­ments the char­ac­ters get to wan­der through and ex­plore! This is a su­per cool look, and we love how AWSM it looks on the Switch screen!
