Octopath Traveler Confirmed Coming to Steam This June

It’s pretty cool that Square Enix has confirmed the leak of last week that Octopath Traveler will be going to Steam this year. This game had been a Nintendo Switch-exclusive, but it appears that will be changing in the next couple months. The confirmed date for Steam release is June 7, and this game falls within the JRPG genre.

In Octopath Traveler, you will have a mix of both 3D graphics and 2D graphics. You will find yourself in a magical world known as Orsterra. There are eight different and unique characters in the game, which all have their own skills and abilities. Beyond their own skills, each character also has motivations and stories to tell as well. The characters are all out on their own missions, whether it be a revenge mission or a self-discovery mission.

More About Characters in Octopath Traveler

If you are wondering about the characters themselves, we have you covered because we wanted to talk a little bit about them. Olberic is a knight who has a ton of experience and wants redemption. Cyrus is a scholar who has a lot of book smarts, but not so much in the common sense department. Tressa is a merchants who is enthusiastic and is trying to hone her skills by traveling the world. Ophelia is a cleric who is noble and is trying to make the pilgrimage to the holy sites in Orsterra.

Therion is a thief that has many skills, but is trapped in a very bad situation. Primrose is a noble who has fallen and is now seeking revenge on the person who murdered her father. Alfyn is an apothecary who just wants to help people, regardless of the cost. H’annit is a hunter with expert skills and she is trying to find her master who has gone missing. As you can see, all of these characters have something to offer the world, but also are in search for something or someone. They have skills and abilities that set them apart, and a great story to tell.

Price for Octopath Traveler on Steam Unknown As of Now

There are some things that we don’t know about the Octopath Traveler Steam version yet, including what the price tag will be. We also are unsure of what the system requirements are going to be, although we know you need a 64-bit operating system and processor. It’s also unknown right now if there will be changes or enhancements to the Steam version.

The Nintendo Switch version has only been out for about a year, so we don’t imagine that much will need to be done in terms of enhancing the graphics or other details. There will be some specific features of Steam that will be available in the new port of the game. This includes saves in the Steam Cloud, trading cards, and achievements. We are still light on other details and aspects of this game, but we figure that we will learn more as time gets closer to the release.

If we hear anymore important details we will be sure to let you know. In the meantime, we want to know if you have played Octopath Traveler on Nintendo Switch yet.
