Square Enix released a new monthly playlist on streaming services with the theme of “Road Trip.” It includes many popular songs from some of their most popular IPs. Some of the game series featured in “Road Trip” include the Final Fantasy series, Chocobo’s Dungeon, Octopath Traveler, NieR Automata, Romancing SaGa, Star Ocean, Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross and the Mana series, among others.

On April 2023, the Square Enix Music Twitter account started a new trend of releasing a monthly playlist with a particular theme for the next 12 months. The playlist for April featured the theme of “Commute.” “Road Trip” is the latest playlist in this new trend, and it features 61 different songs from a variety of popular SE franchises.

As an interesting side-note, despite the theme for May 2023 being “Road Trip,” the playlist only includes one song from Final Fantasy XV. FFXV is notorious for its narrative focusing on the road trip adventure that Noctis and his closest friends and royal guard experience across the world of Eos.

As a reminder, on February 2023 Square Enix released a playlist with over 350 songs from the Kingdom Hearts franchise.

Square Enix’s latest monthly playlist, Road Trip, is immediately available on select streaming services, including Apple Music, YouTube Music, and Spotify.
