As many people know Octopath Traveler was a turn-based RPG that was developed by Square Enix & Acquire and released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch back in July of this year. Since its release many people were highly impressed by various aspects of Octopath Traveler including its combat system along with its high definition 16-bit visuals which gave the game itself a very unique look as far as presentation was concerned. Also, Octopath Traveller had eight playable characters each with their own story that people could choose from and since its release managed to reach over one million copies worldwide in sales. The amount of mainstream success Octopath Traveller has achieved since its initial release is impressive especially since the game is still less than a year old.
The fact that Octopath Traveler remained an exclusive title for the Nintendo Switch was definitely one of the few things that added to its appeal. If Octopath Traveler was also ported for the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One the game could ended being overshadowed by games such as Monster Hunter: World, God of War and many other titles that came out earlier this year. While its debatable on whether or not Octopath Traveler is the best RPG of 2018 in general there is no question that its without a doubt one of the best games within its genre for the Nintendo Switch as far as this year is concerned.
