    1. Why is that? It’s a old game that allot of people already played and not the best graphics out there eather.

      1. Lekkah it’s a 20yr old game that plenty of people haven’t played.
        And the graphics are actually incredible.

        1. Incredible compared to what? Games from 10 years ago? Sorry but please try to be objective , it’s ok for a switch game but thats it really.

      2. Is Octopath Traveler series a spin off of Final Fantasy like Trials of Mana and Bravely Default?

        Octopath traveler 2 is one heck of a game!!!!!! The story of 8 travelers is just incredible.

  1. Im not really a souls-like games fan, but im glad Wo Long Fallen Dynasty is doing fairly decent. I feel like they need to nerf the enemy a.i Because the 1st boss “Zhang Liang” There more less forcing players into learning the gameplay mechanics vs an almost impossible boss. I feel like the 1st boss will discourage players from continuing with what seems like an amazing game otherwise. I’ve already not just raged, but deleted and re downloaded the game “Twice” out of frustration.

  2. I hope Octopath Traveler 2 stays top 10 for at least 2 more weeks. I’m finally beating the characters ‘ chapter 2 stories. This is one heck of a game. Way better than some RPGs with modern graphics such as Pokémon. I also like this better than Sparks of Hope. I don’t know if the story or gameplay or music is what causes me to not want to stop playing. I like this better than Bravely default series and I LOVE BRAVELY DEFAULT II!!!

    My favorite RPGs on Switch:::: Octopath Traveler 2, Bravely Default II, Shin Megami Tensei V, Astral Chain, Mario Rabbids, Sparks of Hope, Pokémon Scarlet

    I love turned based RPGs.
