Following its announcement earlier this month, Square Enix has revealed new details about Octopath Traveler: Supreme Ruler of the Continents, the new mobile entry in the series.
The first is a story synopsis, which describes the game’s premise in greater detail. It is a prequel to the original Octopath Traveler, and the player will be facing off against three powerful individuals representing wealth, power and glory.
A few years before the tale of the 8 traveling heroes…
The continent of Orsterra was dominated by those who respectively reached the apex of wealth, power and glory. Their endless ambition plunged the continent into darkness. However, multiple individuals stood up against them…
As the one “chosen by the ring”, you will travel the world, and meet those rebels. What will you feel, what will you grasp at the end of your journey? Go forth, towards the story you seek…And craft the legend of the Continent’s Champions.
At the start of the game, players will apparently have to choose one of three paths for either Wealth, Power or Glory. At the moment, it is not yet clear if this means players will be locked into one path, or be able to complete all in a single playthrough.
Further information about the villain for each path, including their designs, is presented below:
The one who holds wealth, “The Witch of Greed” Helminia
In search of wealth, you will begin your adventure in the deep forests of the Woodlands region. The one who stands in your path is “The Witch of Greed” Helminia. The witch has embezzled an immense fortune in Valore, dying the town in darkness.
The one who holds power, “The Hero” Titus
In search of power, you will begin your adventure in the snow-covered Frostlands region. The one who stands in your path is “The Hero” Titus. He controls the Red Wings, an organization made to rehabilitate ex-convicts. He rules over the town of Amberglow with an iron fist.
The one who holds glory, “The Playwright” Arguste
In search of glory, you will begin your adventure in the rich plains of the Flatlands region. The one who stands in your path is “The Playwright” Arguste. The citizens of Theatopolis, the capital of arts, all admired his work, but he ended up straying from the right path.
