In mid-December last year Brave Wave announced that they would be releasing a Panzer Dragoon Saga arrangement album titled “Resurrection: Panzer Dragoon Saga 20th Anniversary Arrangement“. Well, now it’s almost here!
What’s really interesting is that the arrangement is done by the original soundtrack’s composer Saori Kobayashi. In an interview with The Verge Kobayashi has stated that: “I was able to achieve the kind of music that I wanted to do 20 years ago“.
Also present on this new arrangement is Eri Ito, Triforce Quartet, and Maho Azuma.
The vinyl release will be a 2LP on lilac colored vinyl. It will be housed in a gatefold jacket with artwork by Katsumi Yokota with additional design by Cory Schmitz. The release will include a booklet with essays and liner notes by people who worked on the game as well as archival artwork.
It’s been confirmed that Brave Wave will be releasing the soundtracks to Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2 for some time, but now we can soon preorder them.
Both soundtracks will be released as a 180g 2LP sets. Sonic Adventure will come with one record on blue and the other on white vinyl, while Sonic Adventure 2 will come with one record on blue and the other on red vinyl.
Both sets will come in gatefold jackets and include printed inner sleeves, and a booklet featuring liner notes, character art and song lyrics. A download code will also be included for both.
The colored records are only for the first pressing of this release. All subsequent pressings will be on black vinyl.
In addition to the 2LP sets Brave Wave will also release a limited 4LP box set that include both soundtracks. The box set includes a card signed by the games’ lead composer Jun Senoue. The box set will be limited to 300 copies. There will not be a regular box set version.
