Today's Nintendo Direct has revealed that Octopath Traveler will be launching on Nintendo Switch on 13th July.

Seemingly ditching the word 'Project' from the game's name, Octopath Traveler is one that many players have been keeping an eye on for some time now. As you can see from the video segment below, today's Direct introduced two new protagonists, Tressa and Alfyn, showing off their abilities in the game.

A special edition of the game was also announced, and is set to include a pop-up book which introduces the game's eight characters and their places of origin, a helpful map for your adventure, a sound selection CD, and a replica coin based on the in-game currency. This special edition will be released on the same day as the standard version of the game.
