Nintendo’s impressive, wide-reaching catalog includes plenty of excellent musical scores. A great soundtrack can elevate a game and punctuate its most incredible moments. There are several examples of this throughout Nintendo’s library – I’m sure some are coming to mind for you as you read this. So, today I’m asking: out of all of Nintendo’s soundtracks, which is your favorite?
This is a very hard decision for me. Many of my favorite Nintendo soundtracks come from some of my favorite games of all time – The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Star Fox 64, and more. Ultimately, however, I have to give this one to Xenoblade Chronicles. The sights and sounds of this game are truly astounding. I vividly remember so many pieces from the game’s score, as well as the intense story moments that they brought to life. The moving, sweeping arrangements of Xenoblade Chronicles are fantastic enough to be my favorite out of any Nintendo game, placing it at the top of some very steep competition from all sorts of renowned franchises.
