Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is just days away - yes, our review will be live before its release - and fans of incredibly complex and lengthy RPGs will soon be rejoicing. It's a game with plenty of promise, but one area perhaps overlooked in the official overview videos / Nintendo Direct is the soundtrack. It's hard to focus on it, sometimes, above all the narration and regional accents.

Yet we can testify to the soundtrack being fabulous in this new entry, with various styles and instrumentation approaches used for different areas and scenarios. Some standouts are choral arrangements for more mythical or soulful areas, and Nintendo has published a video for one of these tracks - Shadow of the Lowlands.

We can attest to the fact that music like this helps the hours melt away when playing, but have a listen for yourself below.

Are you planning to pick up Xenoblade Chronicles 2 this week?
