Octopath Traveler series now available on PlayStation and Xbox platforms

Rejoice Square Enix RPG adventure fans, for the first time the Octopath Traveler series is now available on PlayStation and Xbox platforms.

Octopath Traveler I and Octopath Traveler II, which is already available on the Nintendo Switch and PC, has been defined by the interesting, branching storylines wrapped up in gorgeous 2D character designs and beautiful 3D worlds (described as a fusion of retro pixel art and 3DCG). The series has already topped 4 million units sold since 2018 so additional platforms will undoubtedly give it a bit of a sales bump. Xbox Game Pass owners though can download both titles right now since it’s included in the service’s library.

To celebrate the launch of the game on the additional platforms, Square Enix and Team Asano have released an update for Octopath II which adds an ‘Extra Battle’ post-game mode to provide for more replayability.

Check out the launch trailer and additional details about the release below.
