Octopath Traveler Arrangements Break & Boost -Extend- Album Cover

There's a reason Octopath Traveler featured three times in our Music of the Year 2019 feature, and that is because Yasunori Nishiki's excellent score keeps getting these great arrangement albums.

There was one minor hole in our related coverage on the feature: While we already had reviews for the Octopath Traveler 16bit and Break & Boost albums, we hadn't yet reviewed the followup to the later, Break & Boost -Extend-.

Thanks to longtime RPGFan Music vet Patrick Gann, this is no longer a problem! Read on for his Octopath Traveler Arrangements Break & Boost -Extend- review and see his thoughts on this addition to the also-excellent Break & Boost album.

Safe Travels, Marcos!

With the review out of the way, I also need to take this moment to explain why I'm here talking music. Marcos Gaspar, who has been with RPGFan since late 2014, and spent a large part of those years running RPGFan Music, has had to leave. We're all volunteers here, so it's often inevitable that people have to spend their time elsewhere after a time, and Marcos has a lovely family that deserves all the time they can get from him.

Given the circumstances, I can't blame the guy, even though all of us are going to miss having him around. Marcos gave us a lot of his time over the years, and along with reviews, was majorly instrumental in getting Music of the Year going each year, so on behalf of all of RPGFan, we thank you and will miss you, and wish you nothing but the best.
