How to change the soundtrack in Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster on Nintendo Switch and PS4
This applies to every Final Fantasy game included in the bundle, but you need to change the settings in each game to use the soundtrack of your choice. Follow the steps below to change the soundtrack in the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster on Nintendo Switch and PS4:
- When you launch the game, select ‘Options’.
- Choose ‘Configuration’.
- Change the BGM Type here from ‘Arrangement’ (new Pixel Remaster music) to ‘Original’ for the original soundtrack. You can change it back if you prefer the new songs like I do in most cases.

As of this writing, there is no information on patches for existing versions of the Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster series. Hopefully it does get patched in, because more options are always better.
