Square Enix has suddenly released Octopath Traveler on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 today on the PlayStation Store.

Octopath Traveler originally released for the Switch on July 13, 2018 and later came to PC via Steam on June 7, 2019. It recently came to Xbox Game Pass several years ago on March 25, 2021.

The title features eight protagonists - Olberic, Cyrus, Therion, Ophilia, Primrose, Alfyn, Tressa, and H'aanit. Players can choose to start their playthrough with any of the eight characters and venture throughout the land recruiting the others, while witnessing their own personal story arcs.
