During Tokyo Game Show 2022, Square Enix shared two Octopath Traveler-centric broadcasts. The first of these showings was an excellent live performance of several songs from the Octopath series, lasting roughly 23 minutes.
You can view the timestamped performance below:
Secondly, the recently announced Octopath Traveler II received its own dedicated segment with live English interpretation. The title’s general appeal, gameplay mechanics, cast, and more were detailed. Further, the first revealed gameplay footage is present (from 2:39:29 to 2:49:40). It’s shown that players can manually adjust whether they want the in-game time to be at day or night. Additionally, the BGM will alter depending on the time.

Octopath Traveler II is releasing for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam on February 24, 2023.
This new standalone sequel in the series will add new mechanics, such as a full day/night cycle, with the characters’ path actions differing depending on the time of day. Additionally, unlike the first game, the cast of this entry is promised to interact more, with the “Crossed Paths” stories incorporating two protagonists.
Octopath Traveler is now available for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Stadia, and PC via Steam.
