Want to hear the Xenoblade soundtrack? Here's your chance

3:00 PM on 05.19.2010 // Tim Sheehy

Remember how I mentioned that I was starting to get excited about this game? Well, now that Andriasang has confirmed that this special edition soundtrack will be packed in along with the game, I'm even more excited.

The special soundtrack CD, which features both Yoko Shimomura (Kingdom Hearts) and Yasunori Mitsuda (Xenogears, Xenosaga), along with ACE+ and Manami Kiyota comes with a total of 12 tracks, several of which are already available for preview on the recently updated Xenoblade official site.

Being a bit of a game music otaku, I'll be the first to admit that Mitsuda was the very reason I loved Xenogears so much -- I also enjoyed Yuki Kajiura's Xenosaga scores, but to a much lesser extent. With both Mitsuda and Yoko Shimomura on hand for this latest entry, you really can't go wrong. Now all I have to do is hope Nintendo intends on shipping the game stateside with the soundtrack CD included.

Does this have anyone else as excited as I am?

[Edit: I mentioned that Shimomura scored Xenosaga 2, which was wrong. It was Yuki Kajiura. My bad.]
