With Ocotopath Traveler Nintendo Switch owners can look forward to a wonderful old school RPG. The role-playing game Epos, published yesterday, shines with 8 main characters, whose paths and stories we follow.

In this case, old school doesn't mean old-fashioned, but the graphic style that is reminiscent of the classics of the genre, but now comes in HD.

Here is the official description:

Eight travelers, eight stories to be told. Discover a fantastic world in "OCTOPATH TRAVELER", the thrilling role-playing game for Nintendo Switch from the developers of "Bravely Default".
