Animal Crossing: New Horizons is getting a nice second soundtrack this June
That animal crossing series has some of the most relaxing and downright lovely music in the entire video game industry. From soft, chilled music that helps you study to upbeat music that just gets you in the best mood, there’s something for everyone. Last year, for the 20th anniversary of the series, we got a beautiful 7-disc soundtrack to celebrate, and we’re getting a sequel now.
On June 22nd, Nintendo is releasing Animal Crossing: New Horizons Original Soundtrack 2. This release includes some of the music from last year’s collection as well as numerous new additions up to the 2.0 patch. That means the music from Happy Home Paradise isn’t included, but at least there are plenty of other cozy tunes to sit back and relax to.
The price is 7,480 yen, which is just over £45.00 or $57.00. The soundtrack contains five CDs with over 140 tracks. Some of the music is from last year’s original release, but CD 5 contains all the music added in the updates.
There is also a DVD containing a KK Slider promotional video along with some aerobic exercises based on those you can do outside of City Hall. How cute! There is also a small stamp card that you can mark as an aerobics participant and 12 postcards that you can send to your friends. Or keep and frame.
This isn’t Animal Crossing’s only music release, however. On November 23rd, last year’s KK Slider Music: Instrumental Collection will receive a vinyl re-release which will cost 4,620 yen – around £28.00 or $35.00. This keeps all 18 tracks from the original release while adding a brand new bonus track for die-hard KK Slider fans. You can hear a sample of this fresh new beat from the dog himself in the Nintendo Japan press release.
These are currently only available in Japan through the My Nintendo Store, Nintendo TOKYO and many CD stores across the country. Last year’s capsule was eventually added to Amazon US, however, and given New Horizon’s popularity, it’s hard to imagine that it won’t be available overseas at some point.
