Square Enix has released various details concerning the Japanese release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX on their official website, one of which is the tracklist for the Kingdom Hearts Music Selection Blu-ray album that is to be included with the Japanese Collector’s edition of the game releasing on October 2.
The tracklist has been chosen by the series’ composer Yoko Shimomura and spans the two mainline entries in the series with one song from each world plus a few other iconic tracks such as “Dearly Beloved”. While there are only 32 songs in total, the Blu-ray album contains both the original version of the songs as well as the new version recorded with a live orchestra used the remastered games for a total of 64 tracks. The music for 1.5 ReMIX was recorded with gaQdan, while the music for 2.5 ReMIX has been recorded with the Video Game Orchestra.
Previous Square-Enix Blu-ray soundtrack albums have had high-quality 94kHz/24bit audio alongside downloadable 320kbps MP3 files from the disc, as well as visual aspects such as concept art and making-of videos. So far, it is unknown whether any of these will be included in Kingdom Hearts Music Selection. The album is currently only available for purchase within the Collector’s Edition of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, and there has been no hint of a standalone or overseas release. No further details have surfaced regarding the separate standalone soundtrack already announced for Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX or the soundtrack yet-to-be announced for 1.5 ReMIX.
