Octopath Traveler is A Complete Game
Nintendo Switch exclusive, Octopath Traveler, has no DLC. The reason is that Square Enix says that it is a complete game. In an interview, Square Enix producer Masashi Takahashi said that it should take about fifty to sixty hours to complete the main story.
“Octopus Traveler” is a completely new RPG, so when you remember the titles of this game to users, I thought that I had to prepare something characteristic game properties.
“It took about 80 to 100 hours in testing to play through the other elements, like sub-stories and dungeons that you don’t have to go to as well as get proficient as you like at using special skills as field commands.”
Dengeki Online asked if there were plans to offer DLC.
“We are not thinking about that at all,” said Takahashi. “The release version is a finished product.”
Here is some social media feedback about Octopath Traveler thus far:
the octopath traveler devs saying there’s no DLC cause “they’re actually releasing the game complete” is exactly the kind of shade this industry needs

The Octopath Traveler demo is killing me with these visuals already. It harkens back to the look of Final Fantasy and other games from that time. Nostalgia mixed with some Modernism. Will you play the game and have you tried the demo which is available right now in the Nintendo eShop?
