Bravely Second’s soundtrack is apparently set to arrive on May 20 as well, though we don’t have pricing information currently. Two CDs are included. Additionally, Square Enix is publishing the soundtrack directly.


Monolith Soft updated the Xenoblade Chronicles X website with more screenshots and art. You can find the full set above.

A couple of more tweets hit the Xenoblade Chronicles X Twitter account today. In today’s messages, director Koh Kojima talks about the BLADE home area.

Kojima realizes that the team hasn’t talked much about this aspect of Xenoblade Chronicles X thus far. He says that BLADE will act as the player’s home base both online and offline, and is a location the player will be visiting very frequently in the game. Monolith Soft has prepared various customization options such as the ones they mentioned in previous tweets.
