Square Enix produced a game exclusively for Nintendo Switch which shows the support that the platform is gaining. Even with more titles getting ported to Nintendo Switch, it was interesting to see a game released exclusively on the platform which was in a retro style, but focused on more modern elements which can be enjoyed both in handheld mode and docked mode. The game also received two demo versions before it’s launch, allowing players to give feedback to help shape the game further.
Octopath Traveler is available on Nintendo Switch, you can also test out the prologue demo which let’s you try out eight different characters.
