Dropping a note here about the reading of 夜想曲, more for my own benefit than anything else because I've already looked this up at least once in the past.

The PS1 box explicitly says the game title is yasoukyoku:



However, the album title is nocturne, as seen on the spine:



Likewise, for the song with the same title, the sheet music page in the booklet indicates its reading is also nocturne:

So the word used on the game's spinecard is older, and was changed later? By mistake, on purpose?

I'm not certain the game's title was ever changed, because the boxes of the 1998 and 2003 reprints also say yasoukyoku. The reading of nocturne only seems to appear on the soundtrack.

Why that is, hell if I know
