Laughed for a long time about the lack of Japanese role-playing games, Xbox now seems to want to offer the best representatives of the genre on its consoles. And what better partner is there than Square-Enix? After Dragon Quest XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Ed ition, it is indeed a cult new title from the developer that will be ported to Xbox. Octopath Traveler, the exclusive Nintendo Switch console, is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X on March 25th | S.
The announcement is surprising, but Square-Enix’s J-RPG is really planned for our Xbox consoles. The title will also go straight to the Xbox Game Pass console and PC when it releases on Thursday March 25th. We will be able to discover the adventures of the eight protagonists of the game and the famous “HD-2D” realization of the Japanese studio. This had made Octopath Traveler quick to stand out from the Nintendo console and arouse greed.
This is great news for Xbox gamers who can experience one of the best Nintendo Switch exclusive products. Octopath Traveler features eight main characters, each with a unique story. The title takes the usual codes of the J-RPG and therefore integrates them into a unique cocktail of graphics that mix 3D and 2D renderings of the great classics of the Super Nes era.
Note that Octopath Traveler was already available on PC, so it will also join Xbox Game Pass PC on March 25th.
