Bravely Default II has been available for a few weeks now, but I still find myself focusing on Project Triangle Strategy’s demo. Say what you will about the amount of time it got last Nintendo Direct, those sprites are gorgeous and it at once feels new and familiar. Of course, that’s no surprise from the people behind Octopath Traveler.

That game’s also been on my mind lately, and it looks like I wasn’t the only one. Announced today, Octopath Traveler will soon be a part of… Xbox Game Pass?

 

 

That may sound surprising for a game that launched on Switch, saw a decent push from Nintendo, and even has spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Now players on board with Microsoft’s premium service will be able to experience the multi-character narrative for themselves on PC (which it was already available on) and Xbox consoles. It’s hardly the only Square Enix title on the platform, but for now, it’s the most surprising – albeit a more than welcome one.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
