Octopath Traveler 2 trailer introduces the game’s new trader and scholar

A surprise hit when it released in 2018, Octopath Traveler wove eight different stories into one sprawling RPG adventure. When Octopath Traveler II was announced, fans braced themselves for a whole host of new heroes, stories, and quests. The latest trailer offers a deeper look at two new characters, aka a quarter of the team.

The Merchant & Scholar trailer highlights Partitio and Osvald respectively. Partitio is a profiteer and trader from a pioneer town that has fallen on hard times, so his goal is to travel the world and make real money. Osvald starts out in a pretty bad place after being sentenced to prison for the murder of his wife and daughter. Based on the typical RPG tropes, we expect there’s a lot more to this story.

The first Octopath Traveler appropriately had eight different classes – Apothecary, Cleric, Dancer, Hunter, Merchant, Scholar, Thief, and Warrior – represented by an equal number of unique heroes. The sequel has the same character count and classes, but this time with some additional abilities. Partitio the Merchant can buy items from NPCs as expected, but he can also befriend business partners and recruit additional characters as mercenaries for the party. NPCs for hire were part of the first game, so it’s interesting to see that this is tied specifically to Partitio in this trailer. As for Osvald the Scholar, he can scan NPCs for new information and analyze enemies to find out their weaknesses as expected, but he can also raid characters for their items. This is an action you would probably first associate with the Thief class.

In any case, Octopath Traveler II is developing into another special adventure. Thankfully, we don’t have to wonder when the release date is: the RPG is scheduled for February 24th, 2023. While the original took a while to hit multiple platforms, the sequel will be available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam at launch.
