Recreated Secret Of Mana soundtrack available to preorder on vinyl via Mana Wave

Mana Wave Media have opened up preorders for a vinyl release of the arrangement album “Mana (Secret Of Mana Recreated)”. The album recreates the original soundtrack using uncompressed samples.

The release will be a 2LP available in three color variants – a “Waterfall” green and blue marbled variant, a “Mana Sword” silver and gold nugget variant, and a “Sword In The Stone” bronze and grey swirl variant.
It will be housed in a gatefold jacket with new outer gatefold art by Cathy Kwan and licensed original artwork by Hiroo Isono in the inner gatefold. Each variant will be limited to up to 500 copies.

It is priced at $47 and is available as an open preorder until August 4, 2023. It is scheduled to release in Q4 2023 and can be preordered from Mana Wave here.

Canadians can also preorder via Very Ok Vinyl here. EU folks had the option to preorder via Black Screen Records here, however this has sold out as of this post going live. I’m leaving the link in case they restock.
