Square Enix has listed a new Octopath Traveler II art book for pre-order via their Japanese digital storefront. While the cover depicts the playable cast of Octopath Traveler II, the title states that it will comprise illustrations from the series between 2020 and 2023.

Character illustrations, backgrounds, and sketches of Octopath Traveler II and the ongoing mobile game Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent will be present.

Japanese fans or those who utilize proxy services can now pre-order the art book for ¥3,300 ahead of its May 17, 2023, release. Additionally, purchases made via the Square Enix Japan store, specifically, will grant a poster, though its design has not been shown yet.

Octopath Traveler II is now available worldwide on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.

Throughout this ambitious sequel, players control eight main characters who all face their own unique plights in different parts of Solistia. Further, they all boast unique Jobs, abilities, and even specific stories where duos of the cast interact with each other far more.

This feature was implemented following feedback from the first entry. Regarding gameplay specifics, every party member now has two Path Actions, changed depending on the time of day, adding further character variety and strategy to consider when on the road and in towns.
