While fans of the Xenoblade Chronicles series are eagerly awaiting news of the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 2, here’s an interesting tidbit of information that might keep you sated. The information comes from Attack of the Fanboy, who translated some of composter Yasunori Mitsuda’s tweets about working on the game’s soundtrack.He’s working remotely with the Bratislava Symphony Choir, tweeting that sessions often go until 5AM in the morning.
