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!
