I honestly wasn't expecting more than KHIII and Re Mind, but I'm so happy it's DDD, 0.2 and the χ series as well.

We can finally properly listen to that manic piano in the Master's theme

Great. Looking forward to the collection even though I felt KH3 had one of the weaker soundtracks in the series.

Weaker relative to KH1/KH2? Maybe. But even KH3 had a ton of banger tracks that I would LOVE to be isolated from in game sounds. Its rendition of Afternoon Streets, easily

I mean a good chunk of the songs were just remixes outside of world themes and a few boss tracks. Not terrible of course but I would have appreciated a couple more original songs.

Especially for the final fight with Xehanort

You'd have to wait until import sites set up their order pages. I'm sure Aitai Kuji will have it up shortly.

The digital version will release simultaneously worldwide.

However, if you'd like the physical version, you'll need to wait for import sites to set up their order pages and go through them. I imagine they'll start rolling out in the coming days. SE may also stock it in their overseas stores, but in that event, I don't think they'll be released until much after November 11th.

Look, I am not some KH3 loving person and KH3’s OST is not my favorite of the series, but KH3 is on a completely different level to the rest of the series. They composed unique songs for a ton of scenes. They took a cinematic approach to composing this game, and it created a more cohesive, unified product with a lot of callbacks.

KH3 does not have a weak OST.

This is a part of this game's ost that seems to go very unnoticed by people. I guess fans are used to have a theme repeat during certain scenes always exactly the same, but the way this game uses it's ost and character themes in different parts of the game elevates the ost of this game for me.

I mean in any other game, when xion appeared you would have this play out for sure:


And I mean...fuck it's such a great song I love it 😭 but it would just play out on the background no matter what was happening on screen. In KH3 you have this:


A song that evolves and changes depending on what happens during the scene, it's much more cinematic like you said, and the ammount of work that went into this must have been incredible. So I think it's unfair when people judge KH3's ost just because it didn't have more original themes (even though the ones we have are bangers and some of the best world music in the series for me).

WOWZA 8 DISCS that's awesome. Hope they leave NOTHING out. Just really want a tracklist now.

We already have a DDD soundtrack lol there's literally no need for it to be included here.

Yeah I don't know how people can say it was weak when you take this into account. And so help me, they've gotta include these cutscenes tracks in the OST. They're honestly some of my most anticipated. That theme from right before the final round against Xehanort? So epic--quite frankly more epic than the final battle score itself. The remix of Case of Foretellers for the Luxu reveal scene. All the many, many rearrangements of Another Side we heard for various cutscenes, especially the Xigbar 3/4 time version. To name a few.
