Both variants will be priced at $25 and are available on July 19, 2017 at 8PM CST.

It was teased on social media some time ago, but today Mondo announced the vinyl release of the Contra III: The Alien Wars soundtrack. The soundtrack is by Konami Kukeiha Club and this will be Mondo’s first Contra release (with more to follow later).
The release will be a single 180g LP and comes in a jacket with new artwork from Paul Mann. The release will be available in two color variants – clear with red splatter and blue/red split with white splatter. The former will be limited to 500 copies.
Orders will open on Wednesday (March 1, 2017) from Mondo’s store and are expected to ship shortly afterwards.
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.
