The game, called Octopath Traveler Tairiku no Hasha, will be free-to-play, single-player, and will have microtransactions.
For whatever reason, some game developers create completely unique gameplay experiences based on their existing properties and not bother naming it something else entirely.More news: R Kelly released from jail after $161,000 child support bill is paid

At present, there is no confirmation of a release date, but it is expected to launch for iOS and Android devices in Japan sometime in 2019. It's set in Orsterra before the events of the first game, which we also find out has passed the 1.5 million mark in terms of shipped units and digital sales. Conquerors of the Continent, the mobile game will incorporate a command-based battle system which will includes parties of up to eight with swipe controls for input.
Octopath Traveler: Conquerors of the Continent's story is set around three conquerors in Osterra and you will be able to choose which story to play.
At the time of writing, Square Enix has not mentioned whether it plans to bring Champions of the Continent to the West or not. Each of these eight characters will have their own story arcs, just like the original game.
Octopath Traveler for the Switch centers on eight playable characters from different areas of the world with different specialties. Like the Switch version, it also features Path Actions which aid the player when gathering information, items, allies, and more (thanks, Siliconera).
