The Xenoblade2 Original Soundtrack (Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Original Soundtrack on Amazon Music and in the Trinity release) is the official soundtrack set for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and the most complete release of the music of this game. It was composed by ACE, Kenji Hiramatsu, Manami Kiyota and Yasunori Mitsuda. It includes tracks from the base game, covering cutscene, battle, field, and menu themes distributed across five discs. A sixth disc (exclusive to the Type A and B versions) includes short gameplay sound elements and several piano arrangements of tracks from the first five discs.

Three different versions were put on sale, all made available on May 23, 2018:

  • Type A: This version was released as a USB drive in the shape of the Aegis Core. It contains all of the music on the OST, including the extra tracks included in the 6th disc (mentioned above), as well as a 120-page booklet about the music of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and a card with the signatures of the composers. Only 2,000 copies were made.
  • Type B: This version was released as the 6 CDs, covering all the tracks on the OST (as mentioned above), as well as the booklet and card in the Type A version and sheet music for Where We Used to Be. The front of each of the CDs features the official render of one of the Drivers: Rex, Nia, Tora, Mòrag, Zeke, and Vandham respectively. It was also a very limited release.
  • Type C: This version included the first 5 CDs from the Type B version, and a 12-page booklet featuring a track list, lyrics for the English-language songs, and credits. Besides being available physically, this version was also made available as a digital download on Amazon US and iTunes US.

Before the official release, a selection album with a few tracks (mainly from the early in-game regions and cutscenes) was released bundled with the Collectors Edition of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, titled Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Sound Selection, in December 2017. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Kingdom of Torna Original Soundtrack includes Torna ~ The Golden Country tracks, and it was published in December 14, 2018.

The music of the Type C soundtrack is also included as part of the Xenoblade Chronicles Original Soundtrack Trinity Box.

Track List[edit]

This list is based on the Type B version. The English names are taken from the iTunes version. As the Disc 6 tracks haven't received any international release, the names for them are unofficial translations taken from the VGMdb listing.
