SmashPad’s Most Anticipated Games of 2018

3. Project Octopath Traveler (working title) – Switch

The demo for Octopath Traveler was literally the best demo I have ever played, and that only makes my interest in this game continue to grow. The funny thing is, it doesn’t even have a title yet. I’ve got one for you, Square. Go ballsy and call this Final Fantasy XVI.” – Danreb Victorio

The art style drew me in, but the battle system and writing propelled Octopath Traveler to the top of my list for 2018. If the short-story-esque storytelling structure pans out, it could be a fantastic RPG.” – Jordan Elek

The demo for this title absolutely wowed players and critics with its amazing writing and art direction. I hope the full game can measure up to the hype.” – Brandon Perkins
