During the Pokémon Video Game Championships last week, series producer Junichi Masuda announced Pokémon X & Y would be getting a soundtrack released on iTunes shortly after the launch of the two games.

The Pokémon Company has now confirmed it will contain a whopping 212 tracks and will last for over three and a half hours - we'd all better get charging our mp3 players.

However, it turns out the digital-only copy has evolved into a physical version, but sadly it will only emerge in Japan, which is a shame as the CD comes with bonus tracks and an extensive 28-page booklet featuring development details, background information and some lovely Pokémon artwork we imagine.

There's no official confirmation of the digital release, but the physical copy of the soundtrack will arrive on 13th November in Japan so it's likely to be around then.

What are your thoughts on the soundtrack? Will you be downloading it? Let us know in the comment section below.
