P-Vine Records have announced that they will be releasing the soundtrack to 1991 Super Famicom JRPG Gdleen on vinyl. They describe the new release as follows:
“Taken from classic JRPG “Gdleen” (1991) is “All Sounds of Gdleen”, a brand-new compilation showcasing Gdleen’s breathtaking soundtrack. With Yoh Ooyama of progressive rock band ASTURIAS at the helm, this quickly became one of the most renowned video game soundtracks of the 90s. Quirky electronic beats and midi brass fanfare combine with that iconic chiptune tone to create lush soundscapes, from the pastoral melodies of “Luluta Forest” to the sinister arpeggios of “Ancient Ruins – Ruins of Grande”. With Ohyama himself returning to re-record lost tracks, this record is sure to be worthy of the Gdleen name. Don’t miss this first ever pressing of All Sounds of Gdleen on limited edition vinyl, exclusively from P-VINE Records!”
“Originally released in 1991, Gdleen, or Artificial Planet Gdleen, tells the story of Ryu, a spaceship captain who finds himself stuck on a mysterious, mechanical alien planet: Gdleen. Ryu quickly discovers that the planet is in the center of an intergalactic conflict between an invading tribe of superpowered aliens and Gdleen’s very creators! Together with the fairy Fana, Ryu must resolve a conflict that extends back millenia, to save himself and return to Earth. Along the way, he encounters more fairies, new friends, and plenty of foes in a classic Final Fantasy style JRPG.”
The release will be a single LP on black vinyl. It will be housed in single-pocket jacket with anime-style game artwork.
It is priced at ¥4400 and is scheduled to release on November 2, 2022. It can be preordered via CDJapan here and HMV Japan here.
