Nintendo has released the latest trailer for Octopath Traveler in English which first came out in Japanese earlier today. The video details newly-revealed characters H’aanit the Hunter and Therion the Thief, Path Actions, and side stories. Watch the video below.

Square Enix has published a new (Japanese) trailer for Octopath Traveler. This “April overview” video covers a couple of topics, most importantly two new playable characters. The game’s official website has also been updated.

H’aanit is a hunter who lives a solitary life in a village deep in the woods. Her mentor left the village a year ago to hunt a demon called “Red Eyes”. Worried, H’aanit sets out to look for her mentor and the demon. Her Path Action is “Incite”, which she can use to set animals she has tamed on someone. In combat, she uses bows, a weapon class that has high accuracy. Hunters can also increase the critical hit chance of allies or delay the actions of enemies.
