So yesterday the game Octopath Traveler was released world wide, it was an anticipated JRPG by Square Enix and after about a day of release it already has great scores and reviews. I got this game today and just started it, and I'm really liking what I'm seeing so far (yes I haven't gotten too far just yet, but still), all the character designs are great and the character I chose to start with, Cyrus, is very interesting and cool to me. (plus I like scholar characters a lot lol)

Launch Trailer:


I figure this could be a thread for discussing this game in general and even helping others out if they are stuck with something in the story or side quest.

Some questions to kickstart this thread:
1. Which character do you like, based on your playthrough or from what you've seen/read?
2. Which character did you start with?
3. What do you think of this game?
