Nintendo Switch Exclusive JRPG Octopath Traveler to Launch for PC?

Pokde Picks: 5 Awesome Games to Look Out For in July 2018

If you asked anyone what’s the best JRPG / RPG to play on the Nintendo Switch, there is a high chance that Octopath Traveler will be high up in the recommendations list. Unfortunately, a lot of gamers are missing out as they might not own a Nintendo Switch. Well, don’t worry about it as the game is set to launch for PC.

It appears that Octopath Traveler was rated by the Korean Ratings Board on PC. Games which get rated this way will usually receive an official announcement a few days after. Meaning there’s a very high chance Square Enix will announce that a port of Octopath Traveler is coming to PC. The game is currently a Nintendo Switch exclusive. The rating lists Bandai Namco as the game publisher, which checks out as they handle the publication of Square Enix titles in South Korea.

Octopath Traveler launched on Nintendo Switch worldwide on July 2018 and was a massive critical and commercial success. Square Enix also recently revealed Octopath Traveler Champions of the Continent, a prequel to the original game. While the game is for mobiles and has microtransactions, it’s described as a “single-player RPG” meaning it’s closer to a traditional RPG than the usual mobile game.

The game has three different stories to start with. We’ve detailed them along with the game’s artwork. Champions of the Continent‘s first closed test was already held with 1,600 selected players, from 26th March to 2nd April 2019. Champions of the Continent wasn’t announced outside Japan but Square Enix usually brings over their mobile games, so there’s a high chance it will be released in other regions as well.

When revealing Octopath Traveler Champions of the Continent, Square Enix also already announced that Acquire is working on a new Octopath Traveler console game, and that fans should play the mobile game for the time being.

Pokdepinion: It’s one of the best JRPGs on the Nintendo Switch, so if you didn’t get to play it yet, you should when it’s out on PC.
