The Square Enix vintage-styled JRPG, Octopath Traveler, became a must-have for any Switch owner and fan of the genre. Less than a year later, and Square Enix announced a spin-off prequel for smartphones, Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent.

Champions of the Continent takes place a few years before the events of 2018’s Octopath Traveler in the vibrant world of Orsterra. Players will be able to form an eight-person party for battles, explore the beautifully crafted world in the iconic HD-2D visuals and take on the evil force as one of three protagonists known as the “Chosen One”.
While the application only applies to the Japanese region where the game has a 2019 release window, we can at least assume the game is set to be a worldwide launch. So be on the lookout for (hopefully) more countries to open up to the application process.
