Ship To Shore PhonoCo. is now ready with preorders for their next Konami title – the soundtrack to Castelvania: The Adventure ReBirth. You cannot buy the game, but you can get its soundtrack on vinyl!
The release will be a single LP available in four different variants. A crystal clear retail variant, a red with black splatter variant exclusive to Ship To Shore, a clear with black smoke variant exclusive to Debug Records (and limited to 125 copies), and a red and black split variant exclusive to Black Screen Records. It will be housed in a regular LP jacket with new artwork by Drew Wise. It also includes a heavy card stock insert with the cover artwork and liner notes by Jeremy Parish.
Earlier this week Mondo finally announced that they will be taking orders for the vinyl soundtracks to Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night and Castlevania: Rondo Of Blood/Dracula X.
Symphony Of The Night will be a 180g 2LP available in three different color variants – a limited edition of 1000 copies on bone white, gold, and black tricolor vinyl variant, a bone and silver swirl with white splatter vinyl variant, and a red translucent vinyl variant. It will come in a gatefold jacket with new artwork by Jasmin Darnell.
Symphony Of The Night will include 41 tracks from the game including 7 tracks from the Sega Saturn version.
Rondo Of Blood/Dracula X will be a 180g 2LP with one record on red translucent with black splatter and the other on blue translucent with black splatter colored vinyl. It will come in a gatefold jacket with new artwork by Oliver Barrett.
A limited edition of 250 red/blue split colored copies of this was previously sold at Mondo’s booth at San Diego Comic-Con, but sold out during the event.
The titles are priced at $35 each and are both expected to begin shipping in early November, 2018. They will be available from Mondo’s store on October 24, 2018 at noon CT.
The release will be a 2LP cut at 45 RPM and comes in two different color variants – gold & bronze split and silver with red splatter. The split variant will be limited to 1000 copies. It will come in a jacket with new artwork by Jenolab.
Alongside this new release, Mondo will also have black vinyl copies of the sold out Castlevania III vinyl soundtrack for sale. Both releases will be priced at $30 and will go up for sale on July 21, 2017 at noon CST.
The release will be a 2LP on 180g colored vinyl. It comes in a gatefold cover with brand new artwork done by Sachin Teng. There will be two color variants – a split variant with colors based on game characters (limited to 1000 copies) and an orange translucent with black and white splatter (limited to 2500 copies).
Disc 1 on the album will feature the NES soundtrack, while Disc 2 features the Famicom (VRC6 chip) soundtrack. Both will be newly mastered for this vinyl release by James Plotkin.
Like the first one, this will be a 10″ release. This time on blue vinyl with green splatter and brand new artwork by Eric Powell (see below). Side A will contain the NES version of the soundtrack while Side B will contain the Famicom version of the soundtrack.
This will be the second in their Castlevania series where Castlevania III, Super Castlevania IV, and Castlevania: Symphony Of The Night have also been confirmed.
It will be priced at $20 and will be available from Mondo’s store this Wednesday noon CST (January 11, 2017).
So far it’s just been announced that the first release will be Castlevania, which will be available at the San Diego Comic-Con in July. This likely means that a release for the general public will be available online shortly after (which is what they did with their The Last Of Us release).
But this is not today’s only announcement. iam8bit also announced that they will be releasing Petri Alanko’s Quantum Break soundtrack on vinyl. The release will be on 180g white with colored splatter vinyl and will feature new artwork by Christina Mrozik.
The release is limited to 3000 copies and is set for a Q3 2016 release.
