Octopath Traveler

We still have a few months ago until Square Enix brings Octopath Traveler to the west this summer. However, today we have a bit more insight into what the game holds thanks to the a Australian Classification Board (ACB). The ACB has officially given the game an “M” rating, meaning it’s recommended for players 15 and older. The filing lists “mature themes, sexual references and violence” as points of “moderate impact”, while the game’s  language was said to be of “mild impact.”

Developed by Square Enix and Tenchu and Way of the Samurai developer Acquire, Octopath Traveler is a nostalgic RPG that puts players in control of eight unique protagonists, all with their own grand story to tell and special ability that helps them progress throughout their adventure. The game will release exclusively on the Nintendo Switch on July 13, 2018 in North America.
