Like any other Octopath travelers series, the game is heavily focussed on Stories for any character. Discover the background of any summonable hero, while also enjoying 3 main Story chapters called “The Ring of Wealth, Power and Fame”. Play with a plethora of Champions and form a 8 size party, with different combinations of Classes! Have fun battling big bosses in the Hunts, hard enemies for Sub Story and Traveler Story content, while experiencing the best music provided by Square Enix and Retro Pixel Graphic. If you liked the Octopath Traveler Series for Switch/Pc, this new Spin-off is what you wanna play!
At the start of the game, you will summon a random 5 stars character that will act as yourself for the game story. After a short tutorial, you will need to choose 1 of the 3 Main Story (Wealth, Power and Fame) but don’t worry, you can complete them all by time. Story mode will let you explore, find strong monsters, buy Weapons and Armors at the shops, rest in the Inn, find treasure chests etc.
After you finish Chapter 1 of your Main Story, you’ll unlock Traveler Story and Side Story.
The “Hunt” feature (unlocked later in the main story) lets you fight strong bosses (mini boss and big boss at last) for great rewards, like a lot of Experience Points and also Items that are required for unlocking 5 Stars Character Potential.
The “Find” option will let you watch videos ads for rewards 6 times a day (3 for each option)
