Project Octopath Traveler is being developed by the same team that made Bravely Default on the Nintendo 3DS.

The graphics are not the only thing that is interesting about Project Octopath Traveler though. Each role represents a different "path" to reach the story objectives, and a different eay to interact with other characters.

Combat is turn=based, with a "boost" system that sounds similar to Bravely Default's combat mechanics. The warrior Olberic, for instance, can challenge "almost anyone" to a duel, exposing evil or disposing with obstacles along the way, while the dancer Primrose can use her "allure" ability to lure enemies into traps, lead lost NPCs back into town, or summon allies into battle.

- Square-Enix is working on a title called Octopath Traveler set for release in 2018, but there's a demo out right now.

Once the demo is done and dusted, Square Enix plan to put out a survey and gather fan feedback based on their experiences. Well know a little bit more after going through the demo but we probably wont get a substantial amount of information until 2018, closer to the games release.
