Project Octopath Traveler

Project Octopath Traveler reemerged during last week’s Nintendo Direct following its initial announcement in January. Amazingly, a demo of the game even hit the eShop.

Nintendo UK highlighted the demo’s availability in a news post on its official website today. Towards the end, Nintendo says that Project Octopath Traveler is launching in Spring 2018.

Could this be an error? Absolutely. We’ll just have to wait and see. We’ve only heard on the record that Project Octopath Traveler is planned for 2018, but if Nintendo UK is correct, it’ll be releasing closer to the start of 2018 rather than towards the end of the year.


Yesterday, we reported that Laura Post is the voice of Primrose in Project Octopath Traveler. We also seem to have the actor for Olberic.

While he didn’t technically confirm his role explicitly, Patrick Seitz appears to be voicing the character. Seitwiz put out a tweet a couple of days ago showing the art for Olberic.

Seitz has been involved with tons of games over the years. Perhaps you’ll recognize him as Magnus from Kid Icarus: Uprising? Or maybe as Zeke from Fire Emblem Echoes? He also voiced Draug and Hector in Fire Emblem Heroes, among many others.

Thanks to Anthony for the tip.


Square Enix first announced Project Octopath Traveler way back in January. The game went completely dark – until this week, that is. Project Octopath Traveler was heavily featured in the latest Nintendo Direct, and was even given a meaty demo on the eShop.

In case you’re wondering, Laura Post is the voice of Primrose. Post confirmed her role on Twitter a couple of days ago, writing:

Post has worked on a few games in the past, including the Hyperdimension Neptunia series. She has been involved with several anime productions as well.


With the demo for Project Octopath Traveler going live on the Switch eShop, footage has come in. Check out gameplay below.
