We are excited to see how Octopath Traveler II will bring forth new storylines that will make the journey more worthwhile. Will they be intersecting with one another and give different perspectives as a whole for the storyline of the game or will these stories be separate from one another and make you take great strides into forming a bigger picture. Regardless, it is expected to require a lot of play hours to accomplish. Given that the Octopath Traveler II is a lengthy JRPG to play, it might take a little while to acquire and get accustomed to the gameplay and its systems. One piece of advice that we will give is to play it scene per scene and just enjoy the storyline as you would with other games. As a fan of JRPGs, dive deep into the personalities and the stories that each character will be bringing forth and you would truly appreciate the art of the game. There are eight different stories to unravel and each with a unique appeal to all the players and fans.
