Octopath Traveler is getting a prequel… a free-to-play mobile prequel

There is a new Octopath Traveler game coming, but this one isn’t for the Switch. No, Square Enix is releasing Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent on Android and iOS.

The game is set before the events of the first game and so far we aren’t sure if the game will head west If it does, you will have a free-to-play single-player RPG. With eight new characters and full plot lines. Players will choose between three reigning champions and see the story from their perspective. The max party size is eight, up from four.

We rather enjoyed the game and as nice as it is to see that the franchise is continuing, there are many questions about it being free-to-play on mobile. What timesaving in-app purchases will there be? Or will heroes for your party be in gacha capsules? A stamina bar for fights? Actually don’t tell me, just thinking about prolonged grind to encourage purchases is putting me off already.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
