Capcom have announced a vinyl release titled “Rockman 1-3 Sound Collection”. Rockman is the Japanese name for Mega Man, and the release will feature music from the first three entires in the series.
The release will be a single LP on black vinyl and appears to be housed in a single-pocket jacket with game art.
It is priced at ￥4,167 and will be sold at Capcom’s booth at Tokyo Game Show 2018 from September 20-23, 2018. It has also been available from several Japanese retailers online with a release date of October 24, 2018, but appears to have sold out most places now.
Data Discs announced a partnership with Capcom a few months ago and today they announced their first title – the newly remastered Ōkami soundtrack.
The release will be a 4LP box set in three different 180g color variants – a limited edition clear with pink and white splatter, a frosted clear translucent, and a classic black vinyl. The box set will include a 40-page artbook and a double-sided lithograph with illustrations from Capcom’s archives. It will also includes a download card for a digital copy of the soundtrack.
The limited edition for this is an open preorder and will be available from now and until August 15, 2018 at 10pm UK time.
It is priced at £65 and is scheduled to release in October, 2018. It is available to preorder now via Data Discs store.
Spacelab9’s delayed and long-awaited Mega Man picture disc can now be purchased through Hot Topic’s website and stores.
If you don’t like picture discs, Hot Topic, or both then you’re in luck as Spacelab9 has promised to release a standard vinyl version on their own site on a later undisclosed date.
Update: While I was writing this the release sold out. It might still be available in-store, though.
Update 2: In a comment on a reddit-post, Spacelab9 said that they hope to be able to ship the standard vinyl versions in late September/early October.
A new label dedicated to releasing video game music on physical media called Generation Series have announced that it’s releasing the soundtrack to Street Fighter II Arcade on vinyl and CD.
Generation series appears to be a sublabel to Brave Wave, which is a label run by VGM fans and have previously released alternate versions and “inspired by”-VGM soundtracks on CD and digital.
The release info notes:
The soundtrack release will include new remasters of both CPS-1 and CPS-2 versions of the arcade game, extracted directly from the arcade boards and approved by original composer Yoko Shimomura.
The vinyl will be on translucent red and will feature art prints from Capcom’s archives as well as liner notes from Yoko Shimomura. See the artwork below:
