Square Enix has announced that it will publish Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent in Europe and the United States in 2022.
It is a precursor to Octopath Traveler for iOS and Android mobile devices which was released in Japan in October 2020, and so far continues to be exclusively in the Nippon region.
Champions of the Continent takes place in the same world as the main game, with a three-way story and a new set of characters. Fighters take turns, with up to eight characters, and the game features free-to-play mechanics and in-app purchases.
While no concrete date has been set, Square Enix is expected to come up with new details in the middle of this month.
And at the beginning of the month, of course, it’s the launch of Triangle Strategy, the new role-playing game created by Tomoya Asano, the producer of Octopath Traveler.
