There are likely other avenues you can check later, including series composer Yasunori Nishiki’s Spotify and YouTube Music profiles. While these channels let you listen to his Granblue Fantasy: Versus and Octopath Traveler 1 soundtrack, Octopath 2 is not yet available. For now, the Square website is the quickest way to sample the music.

How Do You Buy the Octopath Traveler 2 OST?

The OST for Octopath Traveler 2 can be purchased, and frankly, it sounds like an awesome offering. The entire OST is a 6-disc soundtrack and is up for pre-order on the North American Square Enix site, while the samples you may have checked out account for only 1/3 of the tracks within.
