Switch’s Octopath Traveler Gets Eight Alternate Box Art Options On My Nintendo
Octopath Traveler‘s box art celebrates the eight-person traveling troupe in its entirety, but if you find yourself especially fond of one character, Nintendo has provided additional box art you can use instead. The box art is limited to North America.
There are eight designs in total, one for each main character. All eight box arts can be downloaded from My Nintendo for 50 Platinum Points. You can buy them right now. They’ll remain on My Nintendo through the rest of 2018 if you’d rather wait until after you’ve beaten the game though.
Don’t worry, Platinum Points aren’t related to Nintendo’s Gold premium currency. You won’t have to purchase more games to get the points you need. Platinum Points are typically unlocked by performing small tasks after you’ve logged into the My Nintendo home page, such as entering the eshop or linking your account across multiple Nintendo platforms.
My Nintendo has a new Octopath Traveler wallpaper as well. You can download it on and use it for PC, smartphones, and tablets. It also costs 50 Platinum Points and is available through 2018.
If you’ve already managed to beat all eight stories in Octopath Traveler, be sure to read up on how to unlock the optional post-game Ruins of Hornburg dungeon. It’s a challenge to beat, but it may hide the secrets behind the lore that connects the eight main stories.
We gave Octopath Traveler an 8/10. In our Octopath Traveler review, Peter Brown wrote, “Despite the lackluster stories that pull you through the world, Octopath thrives on its character progression and the temptations of high-level challenges and rewards. The promise of new jobs, exciting boss fights, and powerful gear will inspire you to poke around every corner, and there are no shortage of discoveries to strive for. And all the while, you’re treated to one of the most interesting and effective re-imaginings of a retro aesthetic around. Octopath will likely be a divisive game due to its fractured storytelling, but it’s one worth playing despite its lesser qualities. Its high points are simply too good to ignore.”
