X5 Music Group is releasing the classical arrangement album The Greatest Video Game Music on vinyl for the first time. It was originally released in 2011 on CD and digital and is performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
It includes music from the games Advent Rising, Angry Birds, Battlefield 2, BioShock, Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Final Fantasy, Final Fantasy VII, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Fallout 3, Grand Theft Auto IV, Halo 3, The Legend Of Zelda, Mass Effect 2, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Galaxy, Tetris, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, and World Of Warcraft.
The release will be a 2LP, but there is not a lot of information available about the packaging. It seems it will use the same artwork that was on the CD version, though.
It was announced a little while ago now that Square Enix would be releasing a selection of tracks from the original Final Fantasy VII as well as from Final Fantasy VII Remake together on vinyl. Now official orders open in a few days (and some distributors have already opened up preorders).
The release will be a 2LP picture disc – with art on one disc from the original Final Fantasy VII and art on the other from Remake. It appears to be housed in a triple gatefold jacket.
It’s being advertised as a “limited made-to-order printing”, and it appears they will try to take as many preorders as they can within the production limits of their pressing plant.
Previously we’ve been treated to both Distant Worlds and Distant Worlds II on vinyl, so naturally it had been rumored for a while that we would get more in the series. And we are, as Distant Worlds III: More Music From Final Fantasy have just opened up for preorders.
Distant Worlds III features arrangements of tracks from Final Fantasy VI, VIII, IX, X, XII, XIII, and XIV as well as some medleys spanning the majority of the series.
The release will be a 2LP on blue vinyl and will presumably come in a gatefold jacket like the previous titles.
It was originally released late last year and only sold in the merch booth at Distant Worlds concerts – until today!
Distant Worlds: Music From Final Fantasy is an album of arranged music from the Final Fantasy series performed by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. It contains tracks from Final Fantasy I-IV, VI-IX, and XI.
The music was originally recorded at the Stockholm Concert Hall in 2007.
The release is a 2LP on black vinyl and is housed in a gatefold jacket.
The Yetee have just begun taking orders for their release of R23X’s Katamari Fantasy, which features mashups of Katamari Damacy and Final Fantasy music. The release was first sold at this year’s MAGfest.
The release is a flexi disc that comes in a cover featuring artwork by Drew Wise. As something special this will be a timed release and will only be available between February 13 to 15 (ending at 11:23PM CST).
