Best Art Direction Goes To

Octopath Traveler

Square Enix/Acquire /Nintendo


“Octopath managed to ride the wave of 16-bit era pixel art nostalgia and simultaneously elevate it into something entirely new. The art style was both purposefully artful but also important to conveying the homage to its influences from the SNES era. The style is so confidently executed that it feels like something we should have already seen before and the fact that we haven’t underscores how significant it is.” -Zombie Zac
