Yeah, I enjoyed the demo and how it delivers on that FF charm that I wanted for decades since the SNES games (haven't played the PSX ones, but FFX was pretty decent...). Octopath Traveler was quite a ride from the demo.

...but everything I've seen so far has kept me on fence. Sure, it has the classical Job System and fine presentation, but until the unseen content impresses me, I'll be holding onto my $60 in the meantime...unless if it was $30.

Doubt it'll be $30...

Besides if even each of the character only has around 8~ hours of story content, that's already 64 hours combined...

Although then again, I have no idea what they are doing with the 8 MC, so I'm very hopeful! So far the gameplay looks great and I love the aesthetics so I'm willing to drop $60 for it (helped that I'm a huge sucker for JRPG)

@Pahvi I don't think that battles will take that long to be honest, if this harkens back to the old time JRPGs (PS1 era ish?) then yeah, the only time you'll spend long should be on bosses with the random encounter not too bad. (The only problem at that time was kinda, more on the amount of random encounter and not the how long you defeat them)

Not to count iirc you can make your walk slower to avoid battles I think? (Don't quote me on this, I don't really remember the exact words).

Anyway, I have no clue how long the story is, and how they'll spin it together... But I'm willing to give it a try. I'm hopeful it'll be around 10~ hour ish per character for unique story content, and you'll end up changing to the other characters for their story content for a while before everyone is pulled for the combined story parts.

But nonetheless, I have high hopes and hopefully it can fulfill it

Anyone know when the "Octopath Traveler: Traveler's Compendium Edition" of this game will be able to pre-order?

@Bunkerneath I preordered mine from GAME yesterday (although still considering the US edition instead cos of the CD unless we get a confirmed OST release in Japan). Unfortunately they tend to be the priciest.

Amazon either has a placeholder or currently taking no more preorders. Nintendo UK store tends to be the last to put up preorders.

@FX102A I found that Amazon are becoming increasingly worse when it comes to putting up pre-orders for games, and not just with Nintendo but other platforms too. Still can't pre-order Spiderman.

played the demo. loved it.. the music, artwork, graphics.

i like the feature path action.. challenged a 5 star npc and got whacked.

the combat is not a cakewalk, need to exploit weakness to break enemies shield.

when to boost skills or just normal attack.

Its a shame i couldn't get my hands on the wayfarer's edition.

Looking forward to this rpg.

Holy [removed], it's looking really good!

There's also Sub-Stories, and then you have ways of doing things that are 'Noble' and 'Rogue'

I wonder if the Rogue ways are able to be savescummed...

i suppose seduce is the rogue path ?

the noble path would be persuasion ?

Might be, I'm not in a habit to do too much guessing I'm afraid.

(Just being hyper excited and hope July will come quicker!)

I've played the demo for about 45 minutes or so at this point and it's felt like one long cutscene. I'm going to keep at it and see how it goes because what they're doing is good, I just really want to play a game not watch a movie.

@FragRed Rumours are that Amazon are having problems with suppliers / distributors. Probably Amazon wanted a bigger discount or maybe other retailers have complained to suppliers to stop giving Amazon special rates or something?

@darkfenrir That M rating was only in Australia and it doesn't even mean Mature. It was always going to be a teen rating in the west.

@Spoony_Tech Ah got it, I didn't even remember the Australia rating anymore, just that I thought it'll be slapped with M rating hue.

Anyway, still excited for this game nonetheless >:3

Big fan of Bravely Default/Second. Looking forward to this one from the same team. Kind of an interesting twist to give each "class" its own story and way to interact with different NPCs.

I seriously can not wait for this game. It is going to be a fantastic summer title and it deserves any success it gets
