    Thumbs up Project Octopath Traveler From Bravely Team, Comes to Nintendo Switch

    project-octopath-traveler.jpg
    Some interesting reveals were made at the live Nintendo Switch presentation last night and Square Enix had a few reveals during the event, but one new IP reared its head. That game was Project Octopath Traveler. This is a new game from the Bravely Default team with classic 2D sprites in gorgeous modern technology and turn-based combat. The title is a work in progress at the moment and not much was shown off in its thirty-second trailer, but what was shown does insight interest. The game will be a Switch exclusive, but no release date was given. You can check out the trailer below:

    I quite dig the art style and camera perspective, but hope it won't all be on a 2d plane.

    ...

    That's about all I can say with the information available.

    Can't say I feel particularly strongly about this in any form right now.

    When SE goes retro, good things tend to happen. This looks hopeful but we haven't seen nearly enough so far!

    Agreed.
    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.

    This, except I wouldn't be opposed to it being on a 2D plane.

    Square Enix being invested in making games on the Switch has me all emotional right now.

    Ah! You just reminded me - this is a game with sprites. Show it to Carny to let him know what sprite is

    He knows what sprites are! But yes, a game so retro? Not a game for him, I suspect. Talking about the art style and visualisation, I'm really liking the use of shadow in this game. When that guy uses a fire spell against that monster, notice how the shadows are illuminated against the background. It kinda reminds me as if they're on stage, in some theatre or something. For a sprite-based game, it's visually arresting. I've always liked a classic fantasy adventure. Thirty seconds is nothing though, so who knows, when more details come through I might change my mind!

    That narrator is really hamming it up, isn't he?

    Not sure how I feel about it being a Switch exclusive, though.

    I like the look of it, and I have a pretty good feeling about it. I really like the style and don't really care if it will be on a 2D plane or not.

    For some reason I want to keep calling this game Project Octomom.
