In case you missed it, Square Enix recently announced that Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent will be receiving a Western launch later in Summer 2022.

This mobile game takes place a few years before the events of Octopath Traveler proper, where the land of Orsterra is ruled by all manner of tyrants seeking to fulfill their selfish desires. Still, some crucial individuals resist these oppressors, Chosen Ones of a Divine Ring, who players will encounter. The title boasts over 64 playable characters at launch, with unique path actions akin to what is useable in Octopath Traveler. Speaking of direct Octopath Traveler carry-overs, its composer, Yasunori Nishiki, has created new compositions.

You can currently pre-register for Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent via the Google Play Store with a chance to gain closed beta access.
