This album features 16-bit versions of eight tracks from Octopath Traveler 2, and it will let the listener imagine how the game would sound like if it appeared in the SNES era. The game’s composer Yasunori Isshiki also personally supervised the arrangements.

Here is the complete list of Octopath Traveler 2 tracks that received 16-bit renditions in this album:

  1. “Partitio, the Merchant”
  2. “Toto’haha”
  3. “Normal Battle I”
  4. “Ku, Land of the Scarlet Sunset”
  5. “Critical Clash II”
  6. “Ruins Immemorial”
  7. “At Your Back”
  8. “Fierce Confrontation”

In the Japanese press release, Square Enix hinted that it will also make this album available on its North American and European web stores. The North American Square Enix Store did have a listing for a similar 16-bit arrangement album for the first game, which was released in 2019. However, it has since sold all of its stocks without any further news about restocks.

The Octopath Traveler II 16-Bit Arrangements album is now available for purchase in Japan. The original video game is readily available worldwide on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. Square Enix has also announced plans to release the game on Xbox One and Xbox Series X in 2024.
