Gorgeous J-RPG Octopath Traveler gets a new three-hour demo on Switch today
There’s good news for those eagerly awaiting the arrival of Square Enix’s striking modern-retro J-RPG Octopath Traveler on Switch: a massive three-hour demo launches later today on Nintendo’s eShop in Europe and North America.
This, of course, follows the incredibly promising two-character playable teaser that Square released late last year, highlighting Octopath Traveler’s engaging combat system – reminiscent of the excellent Bravely Default series (it comes from the same producers) – as well as its gorgeously distinctive “2D-HD” aesthetic, blending old-school pixel-art with a fully-3D world.
According to information revealed during Nintendo’s E3 Treehouse broadcast, the new Octopath Traveler demo will let players try out all eight characters in the game – each beginning with their own distinct stories. The only restriction is a hard three-hour limit on the demo, meaning that it mightn’t be possible to get through every character in that time.
