Critics Consensus: The stories are a tad uneven, and the grinding required to progress the story can be frustrating, but Octopath Traveler largely succeeds in balancing new and old JRPG mechanics. At the end of the day, this is a beautiful game with an absolutely phenomenal soundtrack.

Game Description / Storyline:

The Producers of Bravely Default at Square Enix bring us a new fantasy world brought to life through a mix of CG, pixel art, and visual wizardry that the developers have termed “HD-2D.” Begin your journey as one of eight protagonists, each with their own origin, talents, and goals. Where will your journey begin? Who will you team up with? And where will you go next? All these decisions and more are completely up to you, the player.
