During Square Enix’s financial call in Japan. The company has commented on the surprising success of Octopath Traveler confirming that the sales of the game exceeded their expectations. 

The new Switch exclusive RPG had sales stronger than Square Enix’s pre-sales forecast. The company mentioned the U.S.A and Europe as being the two major markets where the sales were higher than expectations. Square Enix also confirmed that Octopath Traveler had a higher than average sales ratio for digital downloads.

Square Enix was asked what they thought about the game’s success. The company believes it’s due to factors such as a greater appreciation of JRPGs in recent years, game design that appeals to old Square Enix game fans, new elements including HD-2D, and attractive characters. All these points happen to be things reviewers praise the game for.

Square Enix also considers Switch a good platform for middle-budget games like Octopath. The company said we can expect more of similar games in the future. Octopath Traveler is a Switch exclusive.
