Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Composer’s New Project Sparks Sequel Rumors
The popularity of the Xenoblade Chronicles series has enjoyed a bit of an upswing as of late thanks to the recent addition of Pyra and Mythra to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster. With the franchise once again in the spotlight, new reports have surfaced suggesting that a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sequel may be on the horizon.
Rumors about a potential Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sequel in the works stem from a recent breakdown from Redditor u/Xenomorph555, who made some interesting points today regarding the goings-on of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 composer Yasunori Mitsuda. The composer recently revealed through Procyon Studio that he will soon be starting on his big April project, which he had been talking about since earlier this year. Elsewhere, Chico from the music band ACE+ has also said that they are prepping for a big project. For those unaware, ACE+ has done soundtrack wok for numerous games over the years, including working on the soundtrack for both Xenoblade Chronicles 1 and 2.
I don’t speak Japanese, but, according to the free translation, both parties seem very excited. The fact that Mitsuda and ACE+ are seemingly working on a new music project together makes it fairly indicative that a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sequel is in the works, though this is mostly circumstantial at this point. Either way, it’ll be interesting to see what comes out of their latest collaboration!
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is currently available for Nintendo Switch.
