Playing the game right now, it takes a while to get started (it's an RPG after all), but it looks sublime. The controller vibration is quite strong also !! Will buy for sure.

English VO is not good
Can't tell if this is 30fps... or lower

Music is great indeed.
I thought the size of the font was alright, in handheld mode at least.
The game is very bright at the center of the screen and very dark on the edges. Maybe it's just the town I'm in but I don't like that.
The menu map is gorgeous !!

Will def get this at some point. I like the art style for the most part but that hyper bloom lighting is putting me off. Getting some SD3 vibes from this one.

This looks interesting, Not a huge fan of the bland colouring but I kind of get what they're going for. The music is nice

Anyways I want to buy it.

Wow the game looks great in motion

Primrose's prologue is legit, VA, Music and story set up is nice. I really hope the story telling and script can stay on point as it seems like a game that really needs it.

The visuals of HD 2D looks great portable, I'll try it on tv tomorrow. I would kill for a Suikoden like this. Can't wait for the full game.

Wait, developed by Acquire in Unreal Engine 4?

Hope for Silicon Studio to be on Bravely Third?

The twist will be that "(working title)" will be part of the final name, on the box and everything, and then cleverly used ingame somehow to make us go "Ohhhhhh!"

This looks really fucking good. May be time to pick up a Switch soon. I'd also like to say I'd be totally fine if Final Fantasy 16 was a throwback like FF9 was and done using this style of 2D HD. I don't expect it all but folks can dream.

I wasn't sold on this game until this direct. Getting major saga vibes from the 8 protagonists.

Very eager to try the demo.

In the first 10 mins there has been slavery, physical abuse towards women, and implications of rape. This game seems dark.

Well it's 8 stories(Octo) that unfold(path) and they are all about characters that travel(traveller) to the same destination.

It's a classic project title I think, let's hope they come up with a catchy name for the final game. -If not, it will still be a great game from the looks of it.

Is there an option to turn off voice acting? Since it's old school I feel like no voice is more appropriate.

I would be surprised if there wasn't an option to speed it up, even SNES RPGs had them.

I mean....it's Square Enix, are we sure that Project Octopath Travler isn't the final title?

Does it not have enough Fractions, decimal points or Roman numerals for you?

I'm walking around the town at the beginning right now, the graphics are absolutely amazing. The transitions between outside and inside houses is pretty neat and totally seamless. The framerate seems weird... Hard to tell but I want to say it's above 30 and under 60fps, the frame rate is steady otherwise.

The voice acting in the opening cutscene was great and I think they're all the main characters. But I thought the little kid voice actor sounded pretty bad so it could be hit or miss with English, too soon to tell though.

There is a toggle or English or Japanese voices though so that's nice.

The story is seems like the usual JRPG stuff so far but it's presented really well so I don't mind.

Now to find some battles.

Voice acting is solid. Edge screen blur is bad. Music is amazing. Dialogue is dark as fuck. Bloom way to fucking bright. Christ.

This game has a lot of potential I feel. The art style isn't wowing me like others but it still looks pretty and I like the idea of 'HD-2D', I'd love a potential Chrono Trigger remake to be like this but with the art direction of that game. The 8 characters idea is novel too, I'll definitely try the demo tomorrow!
