Octopath Traveler coming to Switch on July 13

The game is releasing on Nintendo Switch next month.

During today's Nintendo Direct, it was confirmed that Octopath Traveler will be releasing for Nintendo Switch on July 13. This was announced earlier at Square Enix's press conference, but it's nevertheless exciting to hear it confirmed during Nintendo's E3 2018 press conference.

Octopath Traveler centers around eight different characters (warrior, cleric, apothecary, merchant, thief, dancer, and hunter) who occupy the same fantastical world.

Each character has their own unique story and will play differently in and out of battle. Octopath Traveler features a mixture of retro and 3D graphics which Square Enix describes as "HD-2D."
