Well it's week 3 in Japan and ZELDA is not in the Top 30.  I'm beginning to think we'll never see a soundtrack to this game at all.

Lord, you're just like me when I was expecting the composer/OST announcement for Kingdom Hearts II.

I'd wait until March or April before I lost All hope whatsoever. Hell, look at the way-after-the-fact ost releases fer Rockman, UN Squadron, Resident Evil Cubed/re Zero/re4, etc. True, those are all Capcom games but still..

Back in 1998, no one really thought the RE2 songs missing from the January release would ever get their own disc and lo & behold they did, half a year later.
(Not only that, but when you mentioned the possibility of a biohazard 4 COMPLETE TRACK release sometime ago, I was pretty skeptical myself that Suleputer would pull another CODE Veronica double-release, but sure enough they did). Suleputer must be swimming in yen to be able to release and rerelease albums with such wanton abandon. The head CEO of SillyPuter must 'suffer' from that Montgomery Burns complex "Sorry Homer, but it would seem at the moment that Smithers and I are.. strapped for cash.", heheh.

If worse comes to worst you could write to Suleputer and see if they'll do an ost release? After all, Capcom and the Big N are still on pretty good terms and I'm sure even stranger things have happened before in the Land of the Eccentric Rising Sun.

If nothing else it would make for an eye-catching PR stunt in the VGM community.. (IGN, 1Up, OCREmix, etc.)

True enough, and as I've said previously, there have been many games in Japan which haven't been so phenomenally successful, yet still got OST treatments.  (Another Capcom title, the awesome but too niche KILLER 7, comes to mind.)

So however well ZELDA TP does in Japan (and I'm hoping it at least will cross the half-million mark as more consoles are sold), it is hopeful that its music will get released.  ZELDA may not be what DRAGON QUEST and FINAL FANTASY are in Japan, but interest in the franchise in Japan is non-existant?  Some on various game boards say so, but I think not.

Back to the original topic of the NA CD release (trying to blissfully ignore the possibility of a cold, cruel future in which there is no full ost released for the game), now that I've finished the game I'm wondering just where the heck that orchestra piece #2 comes from, being that it's not really specifically an arranged track of music from the game.  It sounds like something that should've gone in somewhere but just didn't make the cut.  Did I just miss it somewhere?

No, I heard that song featured in a commercial for the GC version.  I've forgotten the link, but http://www.thehylia.com/ pinpointed it out.

Don't worry, let's not give up hope for a full-fledged release yet.
