One of the many surprises of the Nintendo Direct earlier this week was the announcement of Octopath Traveler II, a direct follow-up to Square Enix's 2018 retro-inspired RPG featuring HD-2D graphics.

This next one will follow eight new travellers as they journey through the land of Solista. Each one has their own story to tell and their paths even intertwine. If you're curious to see more after the initial announcement trailer, the good news is Square Enix has shown off 20 minutes of new gameplay footage at this year's Tokyo Game Show.

You can catch a look between the 25 min - 45 min mark in the video below. A translation is included.

The original game is also available on the Nintendo Switch, we gave it 9 out of 10 stars in our own review. Octopath Traveler II will launch on 24th February 2023. Are you looking forward to this one? Tell us below.
