Octopath Traveler, Square Enix’s Nintendo Switch exclusive JRPG, is coming to PC on June 7.
The critically-acclaimed, retro-styled game will be available to buy via Steam and the Square Enix Store.
The announcement came in a now-deleted blog post on the Square Enix website, as spotted by Gematsu. The blog itself simply listed the already-known features of the game, including the eight heroes and the breaking-centric combat system. The blog does not suggest that there will be any PC-specific special features.
Even without any new features, it’s great to see Octopath Traveler break free of its console exclusivity and be available to new players. The game originally released July 2018, and so by the time of the PC release it will have had almost a full year of pure Nintendo exclusivity.
Octopath Traveler will join Square Enix’s wide catalogue of JRPGs on PC, including almost every Final Fantasy game and Chrono Trigger.
