It seems the eight heroes of Octopath Traveler are heading to the Xbox One. As part of Microsoft’s March 2021 Xbox Game Pass announcements, it confirmed a port of the game. It noted that on March 25, 2021, both console and PC subscribers would have access to the Square Enix RPG. Square Enix hasn’t announced if people can buy the Xbox One version that day yet.
Currently, Octopath Traveler is available on three platforms. It debuted on the Nintendo Switch back in July 2018. Then, about a year later, Square Enix revealed the PC port in June 2019. In April 2020, a Stadia version of the RPG showed up. Now, there’s the Octopath Traveler Xbox One reveal.
Octopath Traveler ended up being quite successful for Square Enix. It hit the two million in sales hallmark in March 2020. Then, back in February 2021, it ended up reaching 2.5 million copies sold.
As a reminder, Octopath Traveler is something of a traditional RPG with SaGa influences. Players follow eight different heroes, with their own roles and abilities, through their stories. You can also switch up their classes.
Octopath Traveler will join the Xbox One and PC Game Pass libraries on March 25, 2021, though Square Enix hasn’t noted if that’s when people will also be able to buy the Xbox One version yet. The game is also available on the Nintendo Switch, PC, and Stadia.
