Your feedback is shaping Project: Octopath Traveler

With its amazing first year on the market drawing to a close, all eyes are on the Switch and what it will do with its sophomore season. Well, all eyes that aren't on Dragon Ball FighterZ, Monster Hunter: World, and today's Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. Nonetheless, millions are wondering what's on deck for the Switch for this summer and beyond, and one title I am really looking forward to is Project: Octopath Traveler.

It's shaping up to not only be one of the most interesting games to come out of Square Enix in some time, but also one of the most beautiful. Seriously, this thing is gorgeous. My time with the demo was brief, but it gave me just enough of a sample to know I want to try the whole thing. 

Now, that demo launched back in September and not long after, a survey was sent out where people could give their feedback on it and shape Octopath Traveler's development. Forty-five thousand people responded to that survey and from those responses, the development team has put together a list of changes it's making to the game as detailed in the video below. Some of the changes are small, like holding the 'B' button to run. Others will have a greater impact, such as skippable and replayable cutscenes and a fast travel feature.
