Today, the Japanese arm of Nintendo released a music video dedicated to its upcoming JRPG by Monolith Soft Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
The trailer features the beautiful song “Shadow of the Lowlands” composed by Maestro Yasunori Mitsuda and performed by Irish choral ensemble Anúna.
Mitsuda-san has been talking at length about the magnitude of the soundtrack of the game, revealing that it involved 300 musicians, and mentioning that he might not get to do something of this scope again in his lifetime.
As you would expect from Mitsuda-san, the song is fantastic, with a charming and subtly epic atmosphere.
You can enjoy the video below. If you want to see more, you can check out the most recent trailer, some lovely TV commercials, and a gallery of screenshots and a couple of lovely videos showing a paior of ice and water-based rare blades. Another batch also showcases more rare blades designed by artists from the Final Fantasy and Tales Of franchises.
You can then read some info about the expansion pass, the Japanese audio track that will (thank Goodness) be available as a free DLC, and watch another trailer featuring the cast. Of course, you should not forget to read our recent hands-on preview.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will launch worldwide exclusively for Nintendo Switch on December 1st.
