Octopath Traveler on the Nintendo Switch has been a runaway success for Square Enix receiving great review scores on a platform which just keeps growing. Dr. Serkan Toto from Kantan Games says that from his observations the game is sold out in stores around Tokyo, Japan and shop assistants still have no idea when fresh stock will arrive. Japanese gamers are being told to purchase the game digitally or purchase eShop cards.
Octopath Traveler is still sold out in all stores I checked in Tokyo this week (pic shows the promo in Bic Camera in Yurakucho yesterday).
