    #1 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.

    So it’s leaked both Octopath and Mario Tennis date...

    I guess this means they will be announced soon?

    Please let it be true! That's sooner than I expected.

    I'll take it if true. Now gimmie dat TWEWY release date

    I have a pretty good feeling we'll at the very least get some release dates for stuff announced during the Direct Mini a couple months ago.

    Believable enough to consider it somewhat legit

    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.

    This would be awesome! Much sooner than I expected. One of my most anticipated switch games this year.

    Why is this sooner than expected from some people?

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

    Why must this always happen..... Sigh....
    I will go set another Chibi Robo on fire then.

    But really. It is my most anticipated title of 2018. I cannot wait for it!

    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.

    Hope this is right.

    Not a bad date, I'm certainly interested in the game. Still need to play the demo.

    Probably the game I'm most looking forward to right now.

    Asano Team are brilliant.

    That's just about far enough beyond E3 that they can officially announce the date at E3, tbh.

    Lets go Final Fantasy XVI

    Wow, really? Seemed like this game was still a year or so away.
  27. Phendrift

    Phendrift Member

    If it’s going to be announced at E3, I doubt amazon would know this early

    I think it’ll be announced sooner...

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

    Why wouldn't it ? The presentation is top notch (VA, great BO...).

    Probably not. We'll know soon with the next Nintendo Direct.

    How come Nintendo's always the ones who bring over SE's titles from the team that makes bravely default?

    SE too lazy?

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

    Oh ok. I’m not paying 90$ with taxes here in CAD that’s all :)

    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?

    Loved the demo, I'll be picking this one up after some impressions.

    Potentially excited. I never played the demo, but all the positive reception has excited me.
  39. #39
    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.

    Octopath is getting me close to buying a Switch.

    It's not just the Bravely team's games, they're also bringing over TWEWY.

    Well what are you waiting for?!

    August sounds perfect for Octopath Traveler.

    That makes sense, cool. Hopefully the story and gameplay hold up, cause that demo was great!

    Based on everything I have seen so far and the great demo, I would say it's definitely the former!

    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.

    Can I still play the demo? I didn't know that. (I'm also in the middle of a few other games at the moment. But if I can still play the demo, I'll give it a shot.)
  49. #49
    Yeah it's more than a little dubious.
