Kirby: Triple Deluxe Soundtrack
Kirby: Triple Deluxe Soundtrack is an official soundtrack CD for Kirby: Triple Deluxe that was available through Club Nintendo. It was released in Japan on February 26th, 2014 for the exchange of 400 Stars (250 if the game was registered), and in Europe and Australia on September 23rd, 2014 for 2,000 Stars. This was the last Kirby soundtrack to be released through Club Nintendo, with all later albums being standard retail releases.
The CD includes 46 tracks from the game and 3 bonus tracks. The songs are higher quality than the in-game Jukebox, and some are mixed differently, such as "Sullied Grace" including the in-game sound effects of Queen Sectonia's boss fight. It is one of the few Kirby soundtrack CDs that was released outside of Japan, and thus, it is the source of many official music titles in English.
The following table lists all the tracks in the Kirby: Triple Deluxe Soundtrack CD, with their English and Japanese titles.
