Wayô Records have just announced that they will be releasing the soundtrack to the SNES god sim / action platforming game ActRaiser on vinyl. It will feature the game’s original soundtrack on disc one and a 2018 symphonic suite on disc two.
The release will be a 2LP on “divine” blue translucent with black and white swirl colored vinyl. It will be housed in a jacket with printed inner sleeves featuring new illustrations by Ayano Koshiro. It will also include a booklet with liner notes by composer Yuzo Koshiro and the arrangement team.
The first 250 preorders will include a shikishi art print signed by Yuzo Koshiro.
Back in 2016 Brave Wave announced that they would release the soundtrack to Shovel Knight and all its upcoming expansions. Now more than 4 years later they are readying their final Shovel Knight release – the soundtrack to Shovel Knight: King Of Cards.
And it’s not just the King Of Cards, but it will also feature the music from Shovel Knight: Showdown as well as a selection of tracks from the original Shovel Knight, that was not included on the first vinyl release.
The release will be a 3LP with one record on gold, one on red and one on white colored vinyl. It appears to be housed in a gatefold jacket that will feature new artwork by Hitoshi Ariga with coloring by Ayano Koshiro. It will include a booklet with artwork and liner notes as well as a download card. As always there will also be a signed version available, which will come with an A4 poster signed by artists Hitoshi Ariga.
They are also releasing a Shovel Knight Treasure Trove box set, which includes all four Shovel Knight vinyl albums together in a box. If you already have the previous albums you can buy the box set separately as well.
The 3LP is priced at $50/€60 ($60/€60 for the signed version) and the box set is priced at €165. They are all scheduled to release in March, 2021.
The release will be a 2LP housed in a gatefold jacket with new artwork by Hitoshi Ariga and Ayano Koshiro. It will be available in two color variants – a standard with one disc on red and the other on black vinyl, and a limited edition with one record on gold and the other on silver vinyl. The limited edition is limited to 125 copies in the EU and an unannounced allocation for the US.
As usual it will also come with a booklet with liner notes by people involved with the game and the vinyl release, as well as a download code for a digital copy of the soundtrack.
