Free Xenoblade Chronicles Music from Nintendo

Free Xenoblade Chronicles Music from Nintendo on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

Nintendo are promoting Xenoblade Chronicles ahead of its big European release this week with the promise of free music.

The UK arm today confirmed a neat incentive for early adopters. Those who register their copies of the game by September 30th will, for a limited time, be able to download the game's rather brilliant soundtrack from the Treasures section of the Club Nintendo website.

The compositions in Monolith's RPG were amongst the numerous high-scoring aspects in our Xenoblade Chronicles review.

Right from the opening tune through to the piece playing during the finale, this is one ultra special aural experience. Bringing so many composers for the total of 90 songs could have been a total disaster, but Yasunori Mitsuda, Yoko Shimomura, ACE+ and Manami Kiyota working together has created a stunningly eclectic selection of music that somehow manages to fit together perfectly from start to finish.

Nintendo are also adding new episodes to the Xenoblade YouTube channel for newbies to get to grips with the game's system and story.

Find out how the game did in our Xenoblade Chronicles.

Thanks to Sherwinator for the tip.

Will you be picking up the new Wii RPG early? What do you think of the early-adopter musical incentive?

Mmmh had it been a CD, I would have called that an incentive, but as long as one of your friends downloads it, you can copy it. There's not much value attached to music files downloaded from Internet.

BUT... the fact that they're "offering" something is a nice plus when they could have just done nothing... I guess.

EDIT : By the way, the French arm of Nintendo Europe is offering an artbook to the 1000 first persons to register their copy... in addition to being able to download the soundtrack. That's more like it Smilie.

Would prefer a red CD like the one released in Japan.

Tried downloading it (zip file) and it doesn't download fully (53.3 meg of a 117 meg file). I think it hasn't been uploaded properly.:-x

Same problem here. (On the Europe Club Nintendo website)

I sent in an email about it, but haven't had a response yet Smilie
