Octopath Traveler aims at Retro Music Lovers with its Soundtrack

It’s been about two days since the release of the Nintendo Switch Exclusive title, Octopath Traveler. The Turn-based role playing game runs on the Unreal Engine and was designed by Kota Oosaki. It is developed by the Game Developing giant, Square Enix and is met with quite a positive run of reviews. With a lot of work going into the graphics of the game, it received a whopping 9.3/10 by IGN and is said by many others that it is an RPG that the Switch badly needed. A trailer for it is embedded below

Although it is true that the story for most or almost all games ends at this point. The company waits and sees the uphill or otherwise downhill life of their title and the chapter is eventually closed after that. Not with Octopath Traveler though. The game was being admired by critics that it released its sound track for the music enthusiasts as well. Bringing not only the nostalgic graphic side of the 90’s gamer, the title also brings in audio cues from the century passed. The soundtrack is beautifully orchestrated with sound signatures from 16 and 32 bit titles in the past. This, combined with the superior feel that entire piece brings you, gets the listener to another dimension.

The best part is, now that soundtrack is available for the general public to listen to. As of today, the soundtrack can be listened to and downloaded from Amazon and iTunes. Physical copies have also been launched in Japan. The digital version runs you $7.99 on both the services.
