NIS America dropped a surprise earlier today with the announcement of a vinyl box set featuring music from the long-running shoot ’em up franchise R-Type.
The release will be a black vinyl 5LP. It will be housed in individual jackets in a slipcase box set and will also include a booklet with the tracklist as well as a download card for 370 (!) tracks from 25 games in the series.
It is priced at $125 and is scheduled to release around June 29, 2021. It can be preordered from NIS America’s store here.
Please note that they only ship to North America and as of this post have not replied to my questions about availability on their European storefront.
UPDATE May 5, 2021: I have received e-mail confirmation from NISA Europe that it is estimated to go up for preorder from their store “within a couple of weeks”.
