Over one million copies of Octopath Traveler sold globally

Yet another strong performer for the Nintendo Switch


Octopath Traveler captured our interest with its first tease before the Nintendo Switch launched and its sales are reflecting that early excitement. As of today, Nintendo has revealed that over one million units of JRPG Octopath Traveler have been sold globally.

In our review, we declared Octopath Traveler the JRPG that Nintendo Switch owners deserved. It's visual style channels the charm of classic JRPGs while exhibiting a polish afforded it by current technology. The turn-based combat features a surprising amount of depth, the game can be broken up into play sessions ideal for the Nintendo Switch, and players are getting a lot of bang for their buck when it comes to playtime. 

Take a look at our Octopath Traveler Final Score so you can see how our review matches up with other publications. Whether you're knee-deep in the game, starting fresh, or giving it another go, you should bookmark our extensive Octopath Traveler guide hub and stay tuned to Shacknews for additional updates.
