Okay, whether you loved or hated the ground combat in Kid Icarus: Uprising, I think we can all agree that the soundtrack was fantastic. Masahiro Sakurai took away an important lesson from Super Smash Bros. Brawl by recruiting some of the top names in Japan including Motoi Sakuraba (Tales series, Star Ocean series, Dark Souls), Yuzo Koshiro (Streets of Rage, Etrian Odyssey), Masafumi Takada (No More Heroes), Noriyuki Iwadare (Grandia series, Lunar series, Ace Attorney series), and Yasunori Mitsuda (Chrono Trigger, Xenogears).

Nintendo apparently recognizes the quality of the soundtrack and is offering a 25-track selection of music to Club Nintendo members in Japan. The CD will be available for 400 points or 250 to those who purchase the game. If you haven't heard the soundtrack in-game, I recommend heading over to the official website where you can hear nine samples.

As a fan of a lot of the music from Nintendo's titles over the years, these constant soundtrack releases from Club Nintendo in Japan make me really envious. Anyone with me in wishing they'd distribute these in other regions?
