Square Enix is bringing its “HD-2D” role-playing game, Octopath Traveler, to Windows PC on June 7, the company announced on Monday. The game will be released digitally through Steam.
It’s not clear yet what will differentiate the PC version of Octopath Traveler from the Nintendo Switch version released in 2018. Square Enix hasn’t specified what features or improvements players should expect on PC.
Octopath Traveler features eight main characters, each with their own distinct stories and adventures. Players explore the perilous continent of Orsterra, and eventually the octet of heroes see their lives intertwine. In our review of Octopath Traveler, we said the game “comes together brilliantly to create a refreshing take on the genre. While it channels the spirit of old favorites, it never feels derivative. It genuinely does feel like a 16-bit RPG that has evolved into something new rather than being mere nostalgia-bait.”
Square Enix recently announced it was developing a prequel to the game, Octopath Traveler: Champion of the Continent, for mobile devices.
