I suppose stranger things have happened. We’ve been looking forward to Xenoblade on the Wii, not only as a great-looking RPG on the console, but also for its soundtrack that will be composed by Yoko Shimomura. While we already knew about a pre-order bonus disc that was coming along with the game in Japan, a new posting on VGMdb indicates that a 4-disc Xenoblade soundtrack will be released on June 23, 2010 in Japan via Dog Ear Records. Yes, Nobuo Uematsu’s own record label.
I think it’s great (although not surprising) that this game is getting a soundtrack release based on the samples on the game’s official website (there’s a new one, by the way!), and I think it’s even more awesome that Dog Ear Records is branching out and releasing music from other composers. The game also featured a vocal theme from Yasunori Mitsuda, so this album represents somewhat of a reunion of former Square Enix composers.
Are you looking forward to Xenoblade and the soundtrack? Are you surprised it’s coming via Dog Ear Records?
