Square Enix announced a new Octopath Traveler game for mobile earlier today. One reason why the company is interested in continuing the series is due to the success of the Switch game. Square Enix has revealed that Octopath Traveler has sold 1.5 million copies.

Octopath Traveler will also continue beyond the mobile title. Square Enix has confirmed that a new console game is in the works. Additionally, the company wrote on Twitter: “For those of you waiting for a new console game, we apologize, but we’ll need more time for production, so in the meantime we hope you’ll enjoy this.”
