Project Octopath Traveler
In a Nintendo Direct late last 2017, Nintendo and Square Enix teased us about the RPG game that they’ve been working on — Project Octopath Traveler. Octopath Traveler tells the story of eight travelers exploring the land of Orsterra. Each of these characters possesses unique abilities that would determine the path that they are going to traverse. Octopath Traveler uses CG, pixel art, and visual wizardry, or simply just called as “HD-2D.”
