The Yetee have announced that they will be releasing the Timeline EP on vinyl. The Timeline EP is a collaborative effort between VGM cover band Marshall Art and VGM cover musician Cory Johnson.
The release features prog/post-rock style chiptune and guitar arrangements of tracks from The Legend Of Zelda series, Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, and Undertale.
Followers of the artists might recognize the songs, but it’s worth noting that they have been completely re-recorded for this EP (except for MGLV from Undertale, which have instead been remixed and remastered for this release).
The release will be 45RPM 10″ on black vinyl with multicolor splatter. It comes in a single 10″ jacket and features new art by Drew Wise on the front and photography by Ami Moregore on the back.
The release is priced at $20 and can be ordered from The Yetee here now. It is not a preorder, so it should be ready to ship out to buyers very soon.
Laced Records teased some upcoming releases a few days ago and today they had quite the announcement – they will be releasing the London Symphony Orchestra’s Final Symphony AND Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra’s Symphonic Fantasies Tokyo on vinyl.

Square Enix have put up a listing on their Japanese store for the vinyl album “To Far Away Times: Chrono Trigger & Chrono Cross Arrangement Album”.

It’s set to release on December 16, 2015 for 4,860 yen (~$41/~€36).
