It is now officially the Octopath Traveler second anniversary. The game was released worldwide on the Nintendo Switch on July 13, 2018. As is common with notable Square Enix hallmarks, there’s some new art to celebrate. The official Japanese Twitter account had the game’s 2D pixel artist, Shizuka Morimoto, create a new image to celebrate. [Thanks, Reddit and GoNintendo!]

The Octopath Traveler image focuses on two specific characters, rather than the whole cast of eight heroes. We have H’aanit, Eliza Woodward, Therion, and Cordelia Ravus riding on Linde’s back, with Heathcote is hanging on to her tail.

This is the second sort of Octopath Traveler anniversary celebration. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is hosting a Spirit Board event with four new spirits inspired by the game’s characters until July 15, 2020. Each spirit features a pair of the heroes and, if you miss the event, you’ll have to wait until a future update for a chance to acquire them in-game.

This also isn’t the first time Morimoto has provided art for an anniversary celebration. Here’s the Bravely Default fifth anniversary design from the artist.

Octopath Traveler is available for the Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia.
