- Updated album info, linked artists from inserts
- Deleted both existing tracklists and removed the bonus movie tracks from the tracklist since we don't add video to tracklists.
- Removed quotes (") from a track from the English version (doesn't exist in inserts, probably just a mistake on the webpage).

Yes, there are FFXV arrangements on this version. This is just a cursory comparison, diffing SQEX-10551~2/SQEX-10599~600 with this release.

On SQEX-10551~2 but not on this release:

Quote:
2.01 "Massive Explosion (Instrumental)" from DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY -Arcade-
2.16 "Massive Explosion (Short ver.)" from DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY -Arcade-
2.18 "Massive Explosion -Novoiski Remix-" from DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY -Arcade-
On SQEX-10599~600 but not on this release:

Quote:
1.03 "Main Theme -arrange-" from FINAL FANTASY
1.04 "Main Theme -arrange-" from FINAL FANTASY II
1.19 "God in Fire -arrange-" from DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY
1.20 "Spark" from DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY OPERA OMNIA
2.09 "Servant of the Crystal -arrange- (Chorus ver.)" FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0
2.16 "Cantata Mortis -arrange-" from DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY
2.17 "The Beginning of the End -arrange- (Chorus ver.)" from FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0
2.19 "Massive Explosion (Acoustic ver.)" from DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY -Arcade-
2.20 "The Beginning of the End (Acoustic ver.)" from FINAL FANTASY TYPE-0
On this release but not others:

Quote:
1.01 At Long Last
1.02 Burgeoning Life
1.03 Character Selection (NT)
1.04 Briefing Selection (NT)
1.05 Customization (NT)
1.06 Beginnings
1.22 Luck's Chime
1.38 Reflection
1.39 Reunion
1.40 Ready for War
1.41 Fulfillment
1.42 Get Into Gear
1.43 Harmony
1.44 Discord
1.64 Stand Your Ground (Arrangement)
1.65 The Fight Is On! (Arrangement)
1.66 Veiled in Black (Arrangement)
1.67 Careening Into Danger (Arrangement)
1.68 APOCALYPSIS NOCTIS (Arrangement)
1.70 Declaration (Clash of the Gods)
1.73 Winner (Clash of the Gods)
1.74 Loser (Clash of the Gods)

1.89 The Root of It All
1.90 Battle with Ifrit
1.91 Massive Explosion (DFFNT Arrangement)
1.92 Battle with Ramuh
1.93 Battle with Leviathan
1.94 Battle with Odin
1.95 Battle with Alexander
1.96 Massive Explosion (Strings ver.)
1.97 The Planesgorger Cometh
1.98 Dare to Defy
1.99 The Dragon Sups
1.100 It Ends Here
1.101 For the Sake of the World
1.102 DISSIDIA NT Ending
Any song that is on both releases doesn't sound changed to me.

Some additional notes about this release:

- M20 credits Keiji Kawamori as composer but SQEX-10552 doesn't have individual composer breakdowns (it was assumed at the time that everything was composed by Takeharu Ishimoto assuming it didn't come from a previous FF release). Added Keiji Kawamori as a composer on SQEX-10551~2.
- M54 should credit Nobuo Uematsu because it uses the Prelude motif.
- M55 is orchestra and uses what sounds like the Crouch End Festival Chorus but is not part of the "Orchestra Recording Section" on SQEX-10551 and neither release credits Kentaro Sato. Not sure if miscredit or not, it's possible Ishimoto just used some generic Choral samples that they had the Chorus record.
- Inserts identify M56 (Character Selection) as arranged by Takeharu Ishimoto and Kentaro Sato and M57 (Customization) as arranged by Takeharu Ishimoto but this is likely a mistake. On SQEX-10551, those tracks are in reverse order (D1M04 = Customization; D1M05 = Character Selection) and correctly credited. Kentaro Sato is only an arranger on the orchestrated songs and Character Selection is a rock medley (though I think it does use Crouch End Festival Chorus with the same choral motif in Massive Explosion). Customization is an orchestra.
- M71,M78 says C/A Takeharu Ishimoto but SQEX-10599~600 lists Kentaro Sato as the arranger (in Orchestra Recording Section). Probably a miscredit on Dissidia NT since these are both Orchestra tracks.
- M87 (Explosion) is a pared down version of Massive Explosion without the band parts.

- Found typo in album info in SQEX-10599~600 during cross reference.
- Corrected a few mistranscribed artists
- Corrected typo on M51

I'm not sure how many other folk care about the actual visual component of these blu-ray releases, but it is staggering how much higher quality the content on this release is here compared to, say, the FFXIV or XV blu-ray soundtracks. The in-game footage is of much higher quality and frame rate and there's a fairly good mix of both stock footage and in-game footage. It's a shame that Square's best FF blu-ray video soundtrack belongs to one of its most lackluster audio soundtracks.

The only tracks it does not include from the two previous Arcade soundtracks (besides Opera Omnia's "Spark") are the "Massive Explosion (short ver.)" from the first soundtrack and the "Cantatis Mortis" and "God in Fire" arrangements and "Massive Explosion", "We Have Arrived" and "Servant of the Crystal" chorus and acoustic versions from the second soundtrack. Does that indicate that these tracks don't actually appear in the arcade game and were just bonus tracks on the first two soundtracks?
