Today Ghost Ramp announced via Twitter that they will be releasing the soundtrack to Vlambeer’s top-down rogue-like Nuclear Throne. The soundtrack is done by Jukio Kallio (also known as Kozilek).
Not much else about the release has been revealed and no indication on a release date, so for now we’ll have to make do with the digital version of the soundtrack which can be streamed via Jukio Kallio’s Bandcamp.
In a Kickstarter update today Super Systems Softworks (the people behind Drift Stage) detailed upcoming merchandise plans in collaboration with Ghost Ramp. And that included a lot of good news for VGM vinyl fans.
It was revealed that the full soundtrack by Myrone will receive a vinyl pressing, it was also revealed that a second car-shaped 7″ with new music and design (the Keizai model), and finally it was revealed that the first car-shaped 7″, which sold out in pre-order, will be re-pressed.
There are no ETA’s on any of these, but the updated noted that the Keizai-shaped 7″ is being pressed right now, so I imagine we will hear more about it soon. The Keizai-release was also previously teased by Ghost Ramp who uploaded the cover art for it (see below).
UPDATE: Somehow I overlooked that Super Systems uploaded a mockup of the record – so feast your eyes on this:
UPDATE 2: The 7″ can now be pre-ordered via Ghost Ramp’s store. It’s limited to 500 copies and is scheduled to release on July 11.
It was teased via a small YouTube-clip from The Yetee back in January, but now it’s up on their website and it is set to release on Saturday – April 16th (Record Store Day 2016).
Black Materia is a rap/hiphop album by Mega Ran & Lost Perception in which they use background music and samples from Final Fantasy VII.

The album will come out on a 140g 2LP via Yetee Records. It’s marketed as a limited edition, but there’s no word on how limited it is.
