Update: Wayfarer’s Edition up on Best Buy

Pre-orders for the Wayfarer’s Edition of Octopath Traveler are now up on BestBuy* for $99.99 USD.

During its latest Nintendo Direct presentation on March 8, Nintendo announced that Square Enix’s newest RPG called Octopath Traveler will launch on July 13. The new fantasy world is brought to life through the combination of modern and pixel graphics.

You begin your journey as one of eight protagonists, each with their own profession and talents. It’s entirely up to you where you go and who is allowed to team up with you. No matter if you prefer to duel or allure an evildoer, it affects your way of playing and how you proceed through the story.

The combat system is a fusion of simple, pick-up-and-play, turn-based battles and all-new mechanics like the Boost system which allows you to increase the strength of your attacks and abilities to strike a lethal blow.

From launch, there will be a Collector’s Edition available not only in Europe, but in North America, Australia and even New Zealand.

  • 8-Page pop-up book featuring each of the heroes which can also hold the other items
