Square Enix confirmed that the Nintendo Switch exclusive JRPG video game Octopath Traveler is coming to gaming PC. The critically-acclaimed JRPG will be made available on Steam and the Square Enix Store starting June 7.
The announcement was made on a now-deleted blog post on the Square Enix website that shows a list of the game’s features. These features include its gameplay, storyline, and details about the eight heroes in the game.

For those who don’t know what the game is about, Octopath Traveler is a turn-based RPG video game that was first released on July 13, 2018, for Nintendo Switch alone. Within a month after its release, the game immediately sold over a million copies worldwide and has been included as one of the best-selling games on Switch.
