Due out June 1st on Nintendo Switch and for Windows through Steam, the trilogy compilation will include remastered music scores by series composer Yuzo Koshiro.

The 56-track Etrian Odyssey soundtrack album features music by the composer of Sega's Streets of Rage. First published to compact disc in 2007 by 5pb, the album includes both the PC-88 vintage home computer sound source and more contemporary Nintendo DS arrangements for each track.

The classic soundtrack is streaming on Amazon Music Unlimited, Spotify, and YouTube Music. From the product page:
Etrian Odyssey HD remasters the timeless adventure of the labyrinth that swallows all. In a vast and fertile land lies a small town known as Etria, a peaceful village that became famous for a startling discovery. A crack in the vast forest opened at Etria's edge, leading downward like a gaping maw. It all began there...

Those who hear rumors of the labyrinth of Etria begin to harbor dreams of exploring it. Riches, fame, prestige... and a promise: the true spirit of adventure on the perilous edge of death. Build a party of explorers from nine different character classes - Create a woodland survivalist, shield-bearing protector, whip-wielding dark hunter, and more. Scour through the dungeon's many layers and fend off the unknown to discover the truth behind the Yggdrasil Labyrinth.
