Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent gets a summer release

Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent Launches in Japan on October 28, 2020

Square Enix has announced the Japanese release date for the highly anticipated free-to-play mobile JRPG Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent. Pre-registration is now live in Japan for Android and iOS, where the game will be available to play from October 28, 2020, while pre-registration in the west finally has a window of time.

We still don’t know too much about Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent as of yet, though Square Enix has revealed the combat features a command battle system with parties consisting of up to eight members. It is a prequel to the much-beloved Octopath Traveler and set in the same locale of Osterra. The original Octopath Traveler is a turn-based role-playing game, which initially released on Nintendo Switch in 2018.

Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent is already proving to be extremely popular, and as of now has surpassed 500,000 pre-registered accounts. To commemorate this milestone, composer Yasunori Nishiki, best known for his work on the original Octopath Traveler soundtrack, has released a brand new song.

When is Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent pre-registration live? 

We finally have official word that Octopath Traveler: Champion of the Continent pre-registration is live in the West, so you can head over to either the Google Play store or the App store to sign up.


As well as opening up pre-registration for the west in Octopath Traveler CotC’s latest trailer, a launch window of Summer 2022 was announced. As we’re already there, that means Square’s mobile title is seemingly imminent, and it really could be any day now.
