Last month, Nintendo of Japan announced the release of an official Breath of the Wild soundtrack, a five-disk set featuring all pieces of music from the main game, both DLC packs, and pre-release trailers. This official soundtrack finally hit store shelves today, available now in both a Standard Edition and a special Limited Edition. To build enthusiasm for the new release, Nintendo offered an in-depth look at both editions of the soundtrack in a new blog post and preview video.
The official Breath of the Wild soundtrack includes five disks, with a total of 211 music tracks. Both the Standard Edition and the Limited Edition of the OST include the five-disk set (with each disk featuring Sheikah designs), a booklet, and internal packaging featuring a map of Hyrule. The Limited Edition meanwhile has a few extra goodies, including unique Sheikah-inspired external packaging, a “Play Button” music player (preloaded with the game’s overworld themes), and a special clear file featuring official artwork from the game.
For a sampling of some of the tracks that will be included in the soundtrack, check out the preview video above. You can get also closer looks at both editions in the gallery below, or at Nintendo of Japan’s Zelda site right here.
The Standard Edition of the Breath of the Wild OST costs 5,000 yen + tax (approximately $49 USD), while the Limited Edition costs 7,000 yen + tax (approximately $67 USD). Both editions are available now at Amazon Japan (Standard Edition here, Limited Edition here), CDJapan (Standard Edition here, Limited Edition here), and Play-Asia (Standard Edition here, Limited Edition here). While the soundtrack is currently a Japan-exclusive release, fans in western territories can import it for a reasonable price from Play-Asia.
