At the September 2022 Nintendo Direct, Square Enix announced Octopath Traveler II, the sequel to the successful 2018 RPG that pioneered HD-2D visuals. However, in addition to coming to Nintendo Switch, Octopath Traveler II is actually also coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on the same release date of February 24, 2023. Square Enix has further announced you can now preorder Octopath Traveler II on Switch, PS4, and PS5, including a special physical collector’s edition.
The Octopath Traveler II Collector’s Edition comes with the game in its standard box, a 44-page size-B5 hardcover art album, an “Extended Battle Tracks” mini OST, and a set of eight gorgeous bust figures depicting the game’s eight protagonists. There is also a background in which to place the bust figures that depicts a map of the continent of Solistia. Here are some additional details about the mini OST:
This mini OST includes 24 variations of Extended Battle Tracks, with unique intro melodies for each of the eight protagonists, which play when taking on a strong foe. This is a special CD with song variations not included in the complete soundtrack which will be sold separately.※These song variations may be sold separately at a later date.
The #OctopathTraveler2 physical collector's edition is available to pre-order for Nintendo Switch, PS5 and PS4.

Across Switch, PS4, and PS5, the Octopath Traveler II Collector’s Edition costs $179.99, so this product is essentially for super fans. However, Square Enix sometimes does not release its awesome collector’s editions in the West at all, as was the case with Live A Live, so it’s terrific that we have that option.
