It’s often been said that Square Enix’s Nintendo Switch JRPG, Octopath Traveler, is a pretty successful title. The company recently announced the game’s prequel, but rather than release it on the same platform, the studio is releasing the title on the Android and iOS platform.
Called Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent, the game is set several years before the events of the first game. Pre-registrations are available at the official site, with an early demo of the game slated for 12 March. That said, it looks like the demo will only be available in Japan.
Beyond that, it also appears that another console title for the series is on its way. As translated by Gematsu, the Octopath Traveler Twitter account says “Everyone waiting for a new game on console, we’re sorry, but production will take a little while longer, so in the meantime, we hope you can enjoy [the smartphone game]!”

Since there’s no timeline as to when we can expect more details about the unreleased console title, it’s probably safe to take “a little while longer” as an understatement by Square Enix.
