Octopath Traveler has engrossed over 2.5 million adventurers


Let me tell you a tale...

Square Enix has announced that its ensemble RPG Octopath Traveler has achieved an impressive 2.5 million global shipments and sales to date. The character-driven adventure game first launched on Nintendo Switch in the summer of 2018, before ported to PC a year later and the Stadia service in April 2020.

Octopath Traveler is a narrative-heavy RPG that follows the journey of an ensemble cast of characters. Rather than playing as one protagonist on a typical adventure, the player bounces between a selection of distinct individuals, whose stories tend to overlap as they face up to their respective quests and hardships. It's a novel idea, and while it doesn't entirely work, the title's distinct charm and personality help it surmount its flaws.

When Square Enix last reported on Octopath Traveler's sales, it had just passed the two million mark, meaning that it has shifted a further 500,000 copies since, which is not too shabby for a new IP RPG already several years into its lifespan. Talented artist Ikusy released a charming illustration to celebrate the sales milestone, which you can check out below.
