David Wise’s Battletoads soundtrack will have very similar artwork and the same vinyl color as the SDCC Comic Con exclusive version, but will not have an embossed cover or a sound chip. It will also feature different gatefold artwork.
Grant Kirkhope’s Banjo Kazooie soundtrack will be on 2LP and come one brown and one red vinyl record. Grant Kirkhope, Graeme Norgate and David Clynick’s Perfect Dark soundtrack will also be a 2LP and come on red and blue splatter vinyl.
Update: All three are scheduled to be released in November.
All three releases will be limited to 3000 copies each. See artwork and vinyl colors below.
Now you might be wondering why I don’t cite the Tweet directly as the source and why I’ve tagged this as a rumored release. This is simply because I can’t find the tweet. It might have been taken down (or I’m an idiot with Twitter, which is just as likely), so I’m counting this as a rumor for now.
Furthermore we got some extra info on the set. It will be a 4LP slipcase on good ol’ black vinyl – no color options. Artwork is done by Olly Moss and Jay Shaw (see pictures below) and the soundtrack will include music from the “Left Behind” DLC. As rumored the price have also been confirmed to be $75.
No word on any limitations, so I’m gonna guess that there will be plenty of these bad boys.
The initial pressing will be limited to 300 copies available exclusively at this years San Diego Comic-Con with exclusive artwork by Nick Gazin (known for doing the artwork to Run The Jewels’ releases) and with light green-in-green vinyl color effect . The whole shabang is being handled by iam8bit, who have said that there will be a release available for the general public later on, which will feature different artwork.
Not only have the release been confirmed, but there’s also more versions than what was originally reported. There are two colors – black and green translucent – and then there’s two types of covers – a standard and a lenticular one.
The lenticular cover and green vinyl combo has sold out, but all others remain ready to preorder. The release date is set to August 21.
