 Octopath Traveler's studio, Acquire, acquired by FromSoftware's

The Kadokawa Corporation, the parent company of FromSoftware, has acquired the developer of Octopath Traveler, Acquire, for an undisclosed amount.

According to, the Japanese conglomerate disclosed the acquisition in a quarterly earnings report that was released today.

With this acquisition, Acquire becomes a sister business to Spike Chunsoft and FromSoftware, among other companies. For those who don't know, FromSoftware is the company behind obscure titles like Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Elden Ring, and Dark Souls. Being the brains behind the Danganronpa and AI: The Somnium Files franchises, Spike Chunsoft is likewise no slouch.

Beyond Octopath Traveler and its follow-up, Acquire has created numerous other games, such as Akiba's Beat, Akiba's Trip: Undead and Undressed, and No Heroes Allowed VR. According to Kadokawa, the acquisition should enable the business to "create synergies" with its "current game-related subsidiaries." Though its meaning is unknown, we hope it alludes to a strange crossover between Octopath Traveler and Elden Ring.

Furthermore, Kadokawa claims that the change will improve its "line-up of console games." It is true that over three million copies of the first Octopath Traveler were sold, and in just three months, a million copies of the sequel were sold. That's a significant amount for a JRPG with traditional mechanics. Although the firm hasn't said if it will continue to work with Square Enix to publish Octopath games, those sales figures suggest it's a very safe bet.
