Takahashi insisted on having Hiroyuki Sawano handle Xenoblade Chronicles X’s music
Today’s Xenoblade Chronicles X Twitter update once again comes from director Tetsuya Takahashi. He (very) briefly touches on the game’s music – specifically composer Hiroyuki Sawano.
Here’s the latest from Takahashi:
“I was thinking of discussing a new topic today, but… Mr. Sawano, thank you for inviting me to your year-end party. I had a great time there.”
“And so, let me talk about the composer, Mr. Hiroyuki Sawano. I’ve long been a big fan of Mr. Sawano’s, and fervently suggested (almost insisted?) that we ask him to compose for this game no matter what.”
“He and Mr. [Yasushi] Horiguchi, from his company Legendoor, are both open-hearted and we were able to have a frank discussion regarding our requirements.”
“Of course, the compositions are wonderful and I’m very glad we asked Mr. Sawano [to come aboard]. As a fan, I look forward to the soundtrack CD that will eventually be released.”
