Today, during a livestream from Japan, Square Enix announced that its popular mobile game Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent is coming to the west.
According to the developers, who hosted the livestream to showcase the upcoming Japanese version 2.0.0, the release for North America and Europe will take place in 2022, with a beta test scheduled for the spring.
More details will be shared in mid-February, so we should be able to hear more soon. Several announcements for the franchise were teased at the end of the year, and that certainly qualifies as pretty exciting.
Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent takes place a few years before the original Octopath Traveler, which incidentally recently expanded to Xbox in addition to Switch and PC.
Given the popularity of Octopath Traveler, it’s certainly no surprise that Square Enix decided to localize this game for North America and Europe. They already have quite a few mobile games in English and some of them are quite successful.
