While we are still a few months away from Octopath Traveler II‘s Switch release on February 24th, 2023, that hasn’t stopped the team over at Square Enix from sharing a good helping of content – the game is supposedly 90% complete, after all.

The latest of these updates, posted by the game’s official Japanese Twitter account (@OCTOPATH_PR), gives us a closer look at Solistia, showcasing some of the game’s Chapter End bosses and some crafty camera movements.

It looks like the HD-2D rendering has really come along leaps and bounds of late too – and that is considering the very strong position in which it started. The environments in the above video look stunning and, combined with the new dynamic camera work, it is clear that Square Enix is really spearheading a stylistic movement here.

The tweet’s caption (translated via Twitter) describes the game as the ‘evolution of HD-2D’, with these new graphics representing ‘HD-2D series version 2.0’. What is clear is that the team are impressed with how the game is looking so far, and hey, can you blame them?
