Octopath Traveler II has revealed a new trailer and new information about two of the eight travelers that will join the party on their journey: Ochette The Hunter and Castti The Apothecary.
The story of Octopath Traveler II takes place in Solistia, a land comprising an eastern and western continent divided by the sea. Here you will journey with eight travelers from different regions for journeying across the land.
Here are just two of these travelers:
Ochette The Hunter
Your name is Ochette, and you are a hunter. Your tale begins on the isle of Toto’haha alongside your fellow beastlings. Despite your troubles with the human islanders, you live a carefree life. That is until you learn of an encroaching calamity known as the Night of the Scarlet Moon.
“All right, Master Juvah. I’ll do it. I’ll find those Creatures of Legend and bring them back.”
Desperate to save your home, you set sail in search of those who can help…
As a hunter, Ochette can summon a number wild of beasts to assist her in battle. She can even capture monsters and turn them into special items.
She is voiced by Aya Hirano (Haruhi Suzumiya, Migi in Parasyte) in the Japanese dub and Suzie Yeung (Makima in Chainsaw Man) in the English dub.
Castti Florenz The Apothecary
Your name is Castti Florenz, and you are an apothecary. Your tale begins in a port town of the Harborlands. Discovered adrift at sea, you awoke to the realization that you could not recall your own name. The only clues to your identity are your satchel and skills as an apothecary.
“I need to rediscover who I am. And…there’s something else. Something important I’m forgetting…”
Unable to ignore the nagging feeling within you, you embark on a journey to recover what you lost…
Being an Apocthacery, Cassti’s main ability is to concoct ingredients to create healing or hazardous compounds. She can also inquire about information from townspeople or soothe their pain to allow them to sleep.
Castti is voiced by Michiko Neya (Riza Hawkeye in FullMetal Alchemist, Hungary in Hetalia) in the Japanese dub and Sarah Wiedenheft in the English dub (Power in Chainsaw Man).
The Hunter and Apothecary also have what’s called a Crossed Path, a new story feature in Octopath Traveler II that involves both travelers working together in one scenario.
