Demos were never something that we regularly downloaded to play on Nintendo’s systems. Rather, we were usually content to experience the game as a whole whenever it eventually came out. With the Switch, however, we’ve been finding ourselves trying out demos more often, and the most recent demo was Project Octopath Traveler.
A working title, Project Octopath Traveler centers on eight heroes in an RPG developed by Square Enix. The trailer that the Nintendo Direct this month had presented had intrigued us enough to download the demo that was available, and we have yet to be disappointed.
We were enthralled immediately by the opening music, finding it comparable to The Lord of the Rings, and the graphics were charming, almost like they are 3D pixels. The mechanics were easy to pick up on, especially battling, and we’re looking forward to when the entire game comes out.
Are you playing the demo for Project Octopath Traveler? What do you think of it so far?
