Ship To Shore PhonoCo. just opened preorders for their previously announced vinyl releases of the Konami Kukeiha Club soundtracks to Rocket Knight Adventures and Kid Dracula.
Rocket Knight Adventures will be a single LP on “Rocket Flash” red and yellow colored vinyl. It will be housed in a regular LP jacket with artwork from the game.
Kid Dracula will be a 10″ on red vinyl with black splatter. It will be housed in a 10″ jacket with design by Drew Wise and it includes a poster with new art by Austin James and liner notes by Jeremy Parish. Kid Dracula will be the second entry in Ship To Shore’s “Konami Kukeiha Club Museum Series”.
Kid Dracula will be the Famicom version of the soundtrack.
Both releases are priced at $20 and are scheduled to release around December 9, 2017.
I’ve asked about EU distribution and Ship To Shore said that both titles will likely be available from an EU vendor, although there’s no ETA on when.
There’s also been some rumors on a possible exclusive Yetee variant for Rocket Knight Adventures, but no news on that one either. I’ll update this post when news are announced.
Rocket Knight Adventures can be preordered from Ship To Shore here, and Kid Dracula here.
Also available is Christa Lee’s “Welcome To The Fantasy Zone” album, which isn’t actual video game music, but rather a love letter to Sega game music, so it might be interesting to some of you Sega fans.
A few days ago – on November 3, 2017 – The Yetee announced that they will be releasing the first of R23X’s tracks for the game EarthCade on vinyl.
What is EarthCade exactly? It’s an in-development game worked on on and off as a passion project, so there’s no clear release date. It’s also a new brand from The Yetee consisting of clothing and accessories where 10% of all sales go to wildlife preservation charities.
The vinyl release will be a 7″ on green vinyl housed in a 7″ jacket with artwork by Drew Wise. It will be a pressing of 250 copies.
It is priced at $13 and is scheduled to release in December 2017. 10% of all sales go to the Wildlife Preservation Society.
It can be preordered from The Yetee here.
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.
