Nintendo Switch Ι Genre: JRPG
Almost in all cultures, the numbers are usually associated with specific events and meanings. For example; in China and Japan, they hold a special significance as they are considered to be auspicious for the people. Without any doubt, a prominent position is taken up the number eight.
Since antiquity, it has been used to refer to extraordinary things; for example we have the Pa Kua – the eight symbols’ system used in Taoism to represent the principles of reality -; the Eight Immortals; the Buddhist’s Noble Eightfold Path – which represent the best practices that set us free from the cycle of rebirth -; and also the Shintoist Orochi – the legendary 8-headed and 8-tailed dragon defeated by Susanoo in the Kojiki -. These few examples need to explain why this number is so relevant, leading Square-Enix to use it extensively in their new exclusive adventure for Nintendo Switch: Octopath Traveler.
Set in the mythical world of Osterra, you’ll be the absolute protagonist of an awe-inspiring tale that will give you the unique opportunity to control the destinies of eight people who are travel vast and wide across its regions.
Will you dance in the shoes of a tiny dancer or will you move silently in the night as a shadowy thief? The decision is up to you!

Who are these brave adventurers and why they’ve started their journey? Well…if you proceed with the reading you’ll discover it.
