What is Octopath Traveler 2?
Each of the eight characters in Octopus Traveler 2 has its own personality, role, and goals. For example, Agnea is a dancer who wants to be a star. Partio, a merchant, wants to end poverty. Oshet the hunter makes friends with animals. Fun fact: Just like the hero in the first game, if you combine and unscramble the first letters of the name, you’ll also spell out the word Octopath.
Each hero has a “pass action” that can be used to interact with the character and the game world outside of combat. You can challenge townsfolk to a duel or ask them to join you on an adventure. You can change the day and night to see the city in a different light.
Octopus Traveler 2 – 17 Screenshots
Combat is turn-based and similar to the original combat. Huge, gigantic enemies often fight relatively small heroes. You can discover enemy weaknesses and exploit them to breach defenses. You can see the battle towards the end of the trailer above.
It’s pretty similar to the first game, so check out our Octopus Traveler review to see what the critics thought of that installment.
