Practically all of Tetsuya Takahashi’s “Xeno” series has had memorable music, with contributions from the likes of Yoko Shimomura, Yasunori Mitsuda and Yuki Kajiura.

The Xenoblade series is no stranger to vocal themes, with the ending of the first game being accompanied by the ballad Beyond the Sky (sung by Sarah Àlainn). Yasunori Mitsuda composed that track, and considering Tomorrow Bird tagged him in their confirmation tweet we could see a similar tune closing out Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
