Octopath Traveler Will Get a Rearranged Soundtrack Release Next Year
Square Enix will plan to release a new version of Octopath Traveler's acclaimed soundtrack in early 2019 featuring new arrangements of its score.
Released earlier this summer, Square Enix’s Octopath Traveler brought Nintendo Switch owners into an experience that looked and felt like a traditional JRPG from the SNES era, but with new flourishes and a unique visual style set in a more modern era. Part of that nostalgia came from the game’s lush soundtrack, and now those looking for a new take on the game’s excellent score can look forward to a new arrangement coming next year.
Square Enix has announced that a rearranged release for Octopath Traveler‘s soundtrack, called “Arrangements – Break & Boost,” will release on February 20, 2019 and feature newly-arranged versions of the game’s score.
The 12-track release will be created with the involvement of the game’s composer, Yasutoshi Nishiki, and a full breakdown of the track list can be found below:
- フロストランド地方The Frostlands
- 踊子プリムロゼのテーマPrimrose, the Dancer
- 赤き断崖の集落A Settlement in the Red Bluffs
- 崖下の村オアウェルOrewell, Beneath the Crags
- ボスバトル2Battle II
- バトル1Battle I
- ボスバトル2Battle II
- 理を司るものThey Who Govern Reason
- 旅路の果てに立ちはだかる者Battle at Journey’s End
- 魔神の血を継ぐ者Daughter of the Dark God
- OCTOPATH TRAVELER -メインテーマ-Octopath Traveler -Main Theme-
While the soundtrack release is confirmed so far for release in Japan (for 3000 yen), no details have arrived yet for whether the soundtrack will also release in other territories outside of Japan. However, given the game’s success at launch this summer, hopefully the soundtrack will arrive in other territories given the passionate audience that the game has already established.
