Mana Wave have opened orders for the vinyl release of Malcolm Robinson’s Final Fantasy IV arrangement “Tales From The Spoony Bard / Hymn Of The Crystals”. It was previously released digitally under the title “Final Fantasy IV Orchestral Selections”.
The release will be a single 180g LP available in two color variants – a “Tales From The Spoony Bard” green, white and orange tricolor variant, and a “Hymn Of The Crystals” blue and black swirl variant. It will be housed in a single-pocket jacket with new artwork by Cathy Kwan. The release is limited to 500 copies of each variant.
Square Enix have announced yet another Final Fantasy vinyl release. This time it’s an album titled “Modulation – Final Fantasy Arrangement Album” and will feature new arrangements of a track from each main series game through FFI-X arranged by original composer Nobuo Uematsu.
The release will be a single LP. So far there are no details on the packaging. It will include a download code for a digital copy of the tracks.
The arrangement album “Contigo En La Distancia Social” by Mariachi Entertainment System is getting released on vinyl by Troggo Studio. It features arrangements of music from the games Halo, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Final Fantasy IV, Sonic The Hedgehog, Donkey Kong Country, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Sayonara Wild Hearts, Shovel Knight, Undertale, Final Fantasy VII, and Street Fighter II.
The release will be a single LP on purple and blue split colored vinyl. It will be housed in a regular LP jacket.
Square Enix are releasing a series of four compilation LPs with character and battle themes from all 15 Final Fantasy main series titles.
Each release will be a single black vinyl LP. They will be housed in tip-on single-pocket jackets with character illustrations by Tetsuya Nomura and will all include a download card. There is also an option for a version which has all four releases together in a clear plastic slipcase
Please note that if you order from Square Enix Japan you will have to buy all four standalone titles in order to qualify for the slipcase, while the Western stores has the 4LP set as a standalone listing.
It is also available to preorder outside of Japan from CDJapan here and Amazon Japan here, however I don’t think there’s any rush to import this from Japan as it will likely become available on both the EU and NA Square Enix stores later on.
