Well this is quite the surprise - with the PS4 remaster of Final Fantasy XII Square Enix have taken the opportunity to give Sakimoto's score the live orchestral instrumentation it's always begged for, and a soundtrack release (albeit a Blu-ray one) to enjoy it with.
Square's official album page has preview snippets of the full (?) soundtrack available for listening, and though it's irritating having to click each track separately, the audio quality gives a much more favorable impression than the various YouTube vids floating around.

At this early stage I'd say the arranged soundtrack shows - as I mention in the preview - promise but not perfection. I hear many places where the live instrumentation makes a marked improvement - especially the woodwinds in the quieter tracks - though there seem to be others where the transition from sampled to live instrumentation turns out a bit clunky. In all though it's promising enough to make this my first VGM pre-order in quite some time.
