For those that have been looking forward to Octopath Traveler, producer Masashi Takahashi said in an interview that there is no planned DLC for the new Nintendo Switch title.
We haven’t even though of having DLC. The retail version is a complete game.
There are eight characters to choose from and each has a different story and setting. You choose which path to take and the beginning of the game is determined by which character the player starts as. You do encounter the other 7 characters and can choose whether or not to recruit them and pursue their stories.
If you have not done so already, the 3-hour demo is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop. Any progress made in the demo will transfer over to the full copy of the game if you choose to purchase it.
