OCTOPATH TRAVELER WON'T GET DLC BECAUSE IT'S A 'COMPLETE GAME'

Octopath Traveler has no planned DLC because the title is a 'complete game,' says producer Masashi Takahashi.

Square Enix's Octopath Traveler for Nintendo Switch won't be getting any DLC because it will release as a fully complete game, says the studio.

"We haven’t even thought of having DLC," producer Masashi Takahashi said in an interview with Dengeki Online (via Siliconera). "The retail version is a complete game.”



Takahashi also confirmed that there would be New Game Plus, saying that the studio has made it so that "you can finish the game in one playthrough," but "depending on the order you go about things, the difficulty will organically change."

The difficulty level seems to be dependant on location, so if a player heads to a tougher area earlier on in the game, they'll be in for a harder time than someone who visits the same area later.

Takahashi also said that the main questline would take around 50-60 hours to complete, extending to 80-100 hours if players mopped up all of the side quests and everything else that the game has to offer. They can even beat the entire game solo, "without recruiting any other characters."

The Octopath Traveler Prologue Demo is available on the Switch eShop now. The title launches for the Switch on July 13. You can check out our hands-on preview for more on the game.

I have played about 20 min of the Demo version with the Warrior but haven't played the prologue version that just came out, even though I did download it. I like the visual style of 2D sprites on a 3D background. The gameplay is very JRPG. I definitely recommend anyone who has a switch to play the demo since it's free and appears to be an excellent RPG for the switch.

lol the callout

my copy is preordered already, and I don't think I'm going to touch the new demo. It basically sounds like "here, play the game for three hours" with the ability to pick up where you left off in the full version, so I'm just gonna wait for the real thing. I enjoyed the first demo and saw their update videos about the feedback they received on it and changes they made, as well as the other protagonists in the full version. It was promising and I've been looking forward to it.

(also the dancer side of the original demo was better)

I'm hoping I have some more time soon to play some games. I picked up Mario+Rabbids gold edition for $44 along with Hollow for $5 and Plague Road for $1 on the eShop. Not to mention playing Fortnite and the other Games and demos I have.
