The first Octopath Traveler was released in 2018 on the Nintendo Switch. This RPG features a turn-based battle system and HD-2D visuals, a striking blend of retro 2D characters in a beautiful 3D world. The player starts the game by choosing one of the eight adventurers as the protagonist. Later the game was released on PC, Stadia and Xbox One and sold over 3 million copies.

Just like the first game, the trailer features eight new travelers: Hikari (Warrior), Agnea (Dancer), Partitio (Merchant), Osvald (Scholar), Throné (Thief), Temenos (Cleric), Ochette (Hunter), and Castti (Apothecary). A new gameplay feature is the day and night cycle, which will change the townscapes and Path Actions available to each character.
