Unfortunately, it’s not clear whether this arrange album will also be released on digital music platforms outside Japan, like the original soundtrack album was. In case there is, we will make sure to update this post (or write a new one, if necessary) as soon as Square-Enix makes an announcement! If you’re interested in importing the CD, it’s now available for pre-order on Amazon.co.jp!
Update: the album is now available for pre-order on the Square-Enix Store:
Alternatively, it’s also available on CD Japan (NB: affiliate link)!
Also, Square-Enix’s wording implies that more arrange albums for Octopath Traveler are in the works, but nothing is confirmed just yet.
