No other details were revealed at this time. Whether players can change their soundtrack during gameplay, or they will need to do so before loading a save file, remains to be seen.
In addition, the new epilogue chapter- Xenoblade Chronicles: Future Connected- was revealed to be playable whenever the player wishes, even if they had not beaten the main adventure.
You can find the rundown (via Nintendo) below.
