While much of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is shrouded in mystery, we have just learned more about what will undoubtedly be one of its most crucial elements: the game’s soundtrack. Legendary composer Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger/Cross, Xenogears) is heading the composition and offered a status report recently, saying the recording has concluded and that sound mixing has begun.

Mitsuda offered up a couple other comments as well. He remarked that 150 people have worked on the music for Xenoblade 2 and it’s among the biggest projects of its kind in gaming right now. Not only that but Mitsuda also states it’s the largest production he’s ever been a part of. He also mentions that a Xenoblade Chronicles X soundtrack release should be coming, though a release date has not been set.

Most interestingly, Mitsuda proclaimed that he hoped the music for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 would surpass that of the first game – a tall order, given the sheer magnificence of that game’s soundtrack. But if anybody has the capability, it’s him.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 releases sometime this year for the Switch. Stay wired for any and all information about the game as it comes out.
