News of Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent, a mobile exclusive version of the amazing Switch game Octopath Traveler, surfaced just a few days ago. Alongside the announcement, the developers have also announced the closed demo and pre-registration campaign for the game. This new mobile game will be a prequel and share the same universe as Octopath Traveler. There is also a possibility for some cross-over characters from the original game. See the video below:

The release plan

In a recent interview with Famitsu, a quite well-known Japanese magazine ( NintendoEverything has translated to English of course), some developers of the game have revealed the development plan of the game including the plan for post-launch. This mobile version of the game was intended for people who don't own a Switch but still want to experience Octopath Traveler, just like Bravely Default which was at first released on the 3DS but then ported over to mobile. So in the case of Octopath Traveler, they will try to preserve as much of the Switch experience as possible with the mobile port. While these days most mobile games all have some kind of components for multiplayer, the team of this game still want to focus most of their effort for the RPG single player experience.

Octopath Traveler Champions Of The Continent Is Co

From what we have learned from the team Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent will follow the model of free-2-play games. There will be some changes in term of controlling scheme for the phone but the core gameplay from Octopath Traveler will remain untouched. I love and still keep on playing the Switch version at the moment, but I am really looking forward to this mobile version. If you love the game and own a Switch, we could try the demo for this game right now before the full release on App Store.
