Octopath Traveler 2 will feature new mechanics

Octopath Traveler 2 will feature new mechanics

The original Octopath Traveler has become one of the preferred Japanese-style RPGs on Nintendo's platforms thanks to its unique approach to the narrative. Being able to follow the story of eight different characters in a single cohesive experience is not something that you usually do in most games of the genre. Square Enix aims to offer the fans the same type of experience with Octopath Traveler 2, but it has added some novelties into the mix. On paper, the new installment in the series follows the same pattern as its predecessor with a distinct gameplay style that reminisces classic role-playing adventures. The addition of new elements will allow the interaction of the different characters, which is something that opens plenty of narrative opportunities for the creators and lets players experience the story in different ways when compared with the original Octopath Traveler.

Crossed Paths

This new interaction between characters comes in the form of Crossed Paths, which are stories that involve two characters. Square Enix has not provided any details about how many of these will be present in Octopath Traveler 2 but it's quite likely that not all the possible pairs will have a shared story. In any case, we are yet to discover many details about the upcoming RPG and we hope that the developer unveils more information in the coming weeks since we are getting closer to the February 24 release. It would be great to know more about all the characters in Octopath Traveler 2 and their unique abilities.
