As promised, Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent is currently having a closed beta test, although it is limited only to Android and if you hail from the North American region. Of course, this is a relatively easy fix if you know your way around things.
To reiterate, the actual launch window for the English version is Summer 2022, so there is still some time before the game comes out.
For reference’s sake, here are the listed features for Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent:
HD-2D: Evolved Pixel Art
2D pixel art, enhanced with 3D-CG effects, brings the wonderous world of Orsterra to life with beautifully stylized environments filled with side quests, dangerous bosses, and treasures.
Strategic and Exhilarating Combat
An evolved command style battle system utilizes up to eight party members, with swipe controls that allow for fast paced command selection.
A Massive Roster
With over 64 characters at launch, explore an endless combination of characters to build your ultimate team. Pick the right team for the right fight and reign victorious on the battlefield.
Choose Your Adventure: Reign of Tyrants
The “Chosen Ones” must rise against the great evils of Orsterra. What perils will you encounter on your journey? No matter what storyline you start with, you can experience them all!
Unique Path Actions
The possibilities are endless with different options for character interactions. “Inquire” for information, “Entreat” for items, or “Hire” them as a party member – try out every option to see what these new relationships yield.
An Epic Game Soundtrack

What do you seek at journey’s end?
A few years prior to the events of OCTOPATH TRAVELER,
Orsterra is ruled by tyrants hungry for “wealth, power, and fame”.
While the tyrants’ desires have unleashed a bottomless darkness upon the world…there are those who resist the darkness.
You will meet them while traveling the world as “the Chosen Ones” of a divine ring.
What will you obtain, and what will you experience through this journey?
Soon the story will lead you to the tyrants of the land.
