Famitsu Releases The Results Of Their Octopath Traveler Survey

Famitsu Releases The Results Of Their Octopath Traveler Survey

Several weeks ago, Famitsu conducted a survey to find out what Japanese fans and overseas players liked about Octopath Traveler.

1,426 Japanese fans took part in the survey, while 2,158 overseas players participated in it. More participants overseas have previously played a game in the Bravely series before trying out Octopath Traveler.

There are many differences between the Japanese and overseas fanbase, such as the things they like (Japanese love the art style while overseas players love the battle systems) and their favorite main story. There were however, some things that both fanbases agree on, such as their favorite Octopath Traveler music.
