    Interestingly enough neither mitsuda nor shimomura their prowess in Xenoblade’s OST, most of the tracks were arranged by ACE+ but if there is an OST I’m looking forward to in the future it has to be FFXIII Versus with Shimomura.

      Fortunately that didn’t turn out to be too bad of a decision, as many of the parts ACE handled were amazingly well done. The music of Gaur plains adds tremendously to the atmosphere as you come out of a narrow cave system to a vast open field.

      • puchinri

        Agreed. I love the music for Gaur Plains and Macuna Woods, and I think the tracks fit wonderfully with the places.

    Shimomura is just that deal. I listen to dramatica frequently and her style is really nice. I loves me some Yoko mhmm.

    If Xenoblade represents your left leg, then The Last Story represents your right leg….meaning, one can’t walk right without both of them. So release The Last Story to the West as well!!

      I’d say that The Last Story would hold back Xenoblade.

    I love Shimomura’s work with Kingdom Hearts, but Radiant Historia’s OST caught me off guard with its excellence. Atlus did just about everything right on the gameplay/story front and Shimomura’s score completed the package.

    It’s rare that I want anyone but Uematsu on a Final Fantasy game, but I’m extremely excited about her being brought in for Versus XIII.

    • SetzerGabbiani

      Yes! Let us not forget Radiant Historia. The music (and gameplay) were definitely great surprises.

    Okay, that’s creepy… just as I read the part about Yoko Shimomure doing the music… my winamp switched to a kingdom hearts song by her…. …. … 0_0 … I can’t wait for this game to get a NA release date, I WANTS!

  • Pesmerga00

    Because they are awesome! That is why.

  • puchinri

    I kind of forgot that Mitsuda had worked on it at all. Though it was Manami Kiyota’s tracks that I loved most (but ACE+’s battle stuff is pure win). Well, the OST is great period and everyone did wonderful work.
    I’m looking forward to hearing the music while playing.

    Sadly, Shimomura doesn’t really shines on this soundtrack, she’s by far the weakest contributor to Xenoblade, Manami Kyouta and ACE+ far over shines her. Not to say she’s bad on the album, but her Kingdom Hearts and Parasite Eve pieces are far more memorable. Main theme aside, the only memorable tracks she composed were Unfinished Battle and Colony 9. Kinda sad she only made 7 tracks of the 91.

    • puchinri

      I agree, but I think it works actually and kind of makes it better for Manamo Kyouta and ACE+. I would have liked to hear more from Yoko, but I already knew that I loved her. But now I know to keep an eye out for Kyouta and ACE+ too as far as their future works go.

    If they want to bring life to wii, release this and last story or die trying

    also waiting for some major releases at E3 cant wait :D

  • PrinceHeir

    awww man i would kill for a “Rebuild of” version of Xenosaga.

    still Xenoblade looks just as awesome as The Last Story. so both games need to come in the US. not to mention with the new nintendo coming up. it’s hard to see any groundbreaking wii games after skyward sword has been released.

    • lostinblue

      “Revisit Xenosaga the way it was meant to be”

      Yeah, you might be onto something, then again I’d prefer new games ;)

      I’d like to see them completing their original vision for Xenogears still.

      • PrinceHeir

        well i just want my true version of Xenosaga :D

        the trilogy wasn’t bad though, in fact it was awesome though i always prefer the original creators vision :P

    • Guest

      Also Pandora’s Tower, Earth Seeker, Dragon Quest Monsters: Battle Road Victory, Fatal Frame remake and reconsider Dynamic Slash ( Zangeki no Reginliev)

  • lostinblue



    Speaking of which there was a town in Baten Kaitos called Mintaka. probably unrelated but hmm…

    Sigh. I want a new Baten Kaitos.
