Amazon.de listed the US version of Octopath Traveler with a release planned for August 17th.

The game will be published in the West by Nintendo and August 17th is a Friday. The games that Nintendo is publishing (1st party + some 3rd party games) are all releasing on Fridays so the date matches previous patterns.

Sales wise summer is the most sensible release window for the game, fall/holiday would be a suicide against Ninty's big title(s) and all the 3rd parties that will be released.

Why is this sooner than expected from some people?

I was expecting Early 2018 lol. The game was shown off last January

This is a nice release date. Not much comes out during this time, so I'll be able to fully dedicate my time to Octopath Travelers.

I played the Demo and liked what I played so hopefully the full game is great.

Where does it state that date on the actual product site?
All I see is the date listed at that third party seller listing.

I purposely stopped playing the demo to not spoil the game for me when it comes out. So hyped for this one.

How are we feeling about this, expectations-wise? A return to 16-bit glory days? Or closer to an I am Setsuna level of quality?

Awww, was kind of hoping we'd see it in June, would've made for a great summer RPG just like the Bravely games before it (I know Default came out in February but I got it a few months late lol).

Then again, if the game was going to come out then I guess we would've heard a date for it in the last direct. Nonetheless, super excited that it's only five months off, wonder when we'll get a title.

After the demo, I think that everyone has pretty high expectations. The musics are stellar, the battle system is fun and the story engaging. Really looking forward to it.
