Xenoblade Chronicles 2 marked a Nintendo first with a worldwide release of its beautiful soundtrack just last month, with the 100+ track anthology seeing unprecedented distribution to fans around the globe. Now, a familiar pink puff is getting in on the fun, with not just one, but three soundtrack releases available for purchase online right now.
The official Kirby Twitter announced earlier today that select music from the games has become available for download globally, starting with Spotify, iTunes, and Apple Music at the time of writing. To kick things off, three Kirby soundtracks are now live on the listed services, starting with the complete OST to one of Kirby’s most recent ventures in Kirby: Planet Robobot for Nintendo 3DS.
As for the other two, these collections were put together to commemorate Kirby’s silver anniversary. Kirby 25th Anniversary Orchestra Concert contains fourteen medleys centered around familiar songs from each of the mainline games, recorded from the July 2017 performance by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra and conducted by Taizo Takemoto. Kirby Memorial Arrangements, on the other hand, features tracks that weren’t performed at the aforementioned concert, but these remix certain themes with live instruments and added vocals.
These soundtracks will likely roll out on other services like Amazon Music and Google Play Music soon. Which other Kirby soundtrack would you like to see a digital re-release of? Or has your mind turned to classic music from other Nintendo franchises like Mario, The Legend of Zelda, or Splatoon? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
Great news! From today, Kirby music is available for download on the iTunes Store, Apple Music and more! On top of that, it's going global! Now there's really no reason to miss out! For more information visit the Kirby Portal website. https://t.co/1QCeQQjf5l (Japanese) pic.twitter.com/9qgKCo0yib
