Octopath Traveler’s unexpected success has gained Square’s confidence back in Nintendo and of course their hybrid system the Nintendo Switch. That and to have the Switch as their platform to include RPG’s of that style as with the HD movement caused those games to fade out of style.
A recent statement, translated by The Wall Street Journal’s Takashi Mochizuki, Square Enix confirming our best interests.
Square Enix on Octopath Traveler 1:
-Sales stronger than firm's pre-sales forecast; exceeded expectations especially in U.S. & Europe
– Higher-than-average ratio of download version vs packaged
