Can’t wait to see how they expand on OT.

I think this can end up being a huge franchise for Square, but feel like they need to make some advancements in the next game. Both 1 and 2 were fantastic

Michiel1989137d ago

I really enjoyed 2, but it really felt like OT 1.5 and not like OT 2. I was quite disappointed with how samey it was.

Nebaku137d ago

Probably because 2 sold like sh*t.

It's funny, I remember being downvoted here for saying that HD2D was the draw, not Octopath itself. And that when better rpg's used the style, Octopath's blandness would become apparent.

And here we are, proving that true.

Sometimes good games don’t sell well. It came out when a lot of games were out and it’s already niche because of graphics and turn based style.

Nebaku137d ago

It's niche because of the graphics that are designed to make it appealing FOR modern audiences?

NitendoPowa137d ago

I think the game price point is the reason for the sluggish sales should be 39.99 instead of 59.99 since the pixel graphics RPG games is kinda niche. It wasn't gonna sale well anyway but it would've sold better at a lower price

that sucks... I get it, when games don't sell this is what happens, but man I liked this series.

Good to hear. Would liked to have seen more sold but I'm just as guilty. Will buy but 50 is a bit to much for me without having played the first one. Say what you will I'm just like that. While I did try it on gamepass I never dug deep. Held out hoping for a ps version then it just kinda got lost

Fantastic. Square should continually to support this franchise.
