The HD-2D role-playing game is out on February 24th for PS4, PS5, PC, and Nintendo Switch, with a free demo currently available.​

Square Enix’s Octopath Traveler 2 has received positive reviews from critics ahead of its release later this week. As such, the publisher released a new overview trailer, quickly outlining everything new and returning fans need to know.

Despite being a sequel, Octopath Traveler 2 features eight new characters with unique stories and Path Actions. You can steal from NPCs, indulge in commerce, put them to sleep and much more. During battles, each protagonist has a secondary Job that provides different skills in addition to their primary Job. Learning Job skills unlocks support skills that automatically trigger in battle. Of course, the gorgeous HD-2D art style from the first game is intact and looks better than ever.

Octopath Traveler 2 is out on February 24th for PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC. A free Prologue demo is available, with all eight characters playable for three hours. Save data transfers over to the full game as well, allowing one to continue their journey.
