We don’t know much yet about Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but Composer Yasunori Mitsuda has been recording the soundtrack, and recently he shared some information about it on his personal Twitter account.

First of all, we hear that Mitsuda-sensei worked on the mix of the songs performed by the popular Irish chroal ensemble Anúna. When he received the data from the sound engineer, it made him cry, and he commented that this isn’t just a game’s music anymore.

We also hear that he has been recording remotely with the Bratislava Symphony Choir (this is a rather common practice for Japanese composers), all the way until five in the morning in Japan.

Mitsuda-sensei commented positively about the performance of the choir, with the recording session ending on May 1st, mentioning that they understood the music perfectly, and provided a “wonderful performance.”

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is slated for a 2017 release exclusively on Nintendo Switch, and you’re unfamiliar with it, you can check out a trailer and a few screenshots.

You can also check out a few images of the recording provided by Mitsuda-sensei himself below.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
