Project: Octopath Traveler is a new RPG by Square Enix for the Switch


It does look kinda pretty, though.

Square Enix has unveiled a new JRPG for Nintendo's new Switch console.

Project: Octopath Traveler appears to combine traditional sprite-based artwork with three-dimensional backdrops and environments. Square Enix's trailer for it also appears to show that the game will feature a turn-based combat system.

It's very likely that this game is fairly early on in development, as there's not much else that's been confirmed about the game. There's also no confirmed release date at this point in time.
