Pokémon X & Y Soundtrack Coming To West, Japan Receives Physical Release

Pokemon_X_Pokemon_Y_logoSince the days of Pokémon Red and Blue, the music has been a core part of the franchise’s intrinsic appeal, so it’s not without thought that Pokémon X and Y director Junichi Masuda revealed the special soundtrack will be released in concurrence with the Nintendo 3DS game. While the west receives the downloadable version, courtesy of iTunes, Japan will get a full physical release CD. The soundtrack boasts an enormous 212 tracks that lasts for over 3 and a half hours, so you’ll never get bored while training at the very least.

In addition to the physical CD, Japan will also receive a 28-page booklet featuring details of the game’s development, as well as some special bonus tracks. A retail release is scheduled for November 13 – a month after the worldwide launch of X and Y – and will cost 2,625 yen. But for those of us overseas, it can be snapped up some time in November on iTunes.

              1. Lol, that we are, well ive manage to secure quite a few articles with “First” so id say im doing well for an imposter dont you think? ;)

  1. Or you can use common sense and import the CD + booklet from Japan. It’s not that hard, just takes a few weeks.

    1. That’s what I’ll do if I can. IMPORT IT. I’m tired of Japan getting all of the coolest things.

  2. nobody even listens to CD’s. and is this guy new? the story was already posted. what happened to alexander? i liked how he was sarcastic- made me laugh.

    1. “nobody even listens to CD’s”. REALLY? Since when? I still do. And most people I know still does.

  3. Screw the digital crap. I’ll just buy the Japanese CD when it releases (if it’s sold in stores, and eBay etc. that is). I’ve had it up the ARSE with all of this digital rubbish. Why do people even care about having something if they can’t display it and show it off?
