Songbook Locations

Jarrod Garripoli

One of the few actual collectibles in Ni no Kuni II, Songbooks don’t really have any relevance to anything in the game and are more of a bonus. Once you build up your kingdom enough, you will be able to construct the Symphonium, which is the first step in utilizing the Songbooks. It isn’t until you can recruit Nereus from finishing Sidequest 048 that you will be able to use the Symphonium. Basically, the Symphonium allows you to listen to the Songbooks, which are tracks from the game, as long as Nereus is assigned to it. You will be able to find Songbooks all over, usually in chests, as rewards from sidequests or for defeating Tainted Monsters. There’s a total of 31 Songbooks in the game, but you only need to obtain 30 for the Music Buff trophy.
