Ship To Shore PhonoCo. have announced the release of several Konami titles this year, and now they’re ready with preorders for one of them – the legendary Gradius.
The release will feature the Famicom soundtrack on one side and the MSX soundtrack on the other.
The release will be a single LP in two color variants – blue vinyl with white splatter, and crystal clear. It comes in a single pocket jacket with new artwork by Ian Wilding. The artwork will interlock with the artwork for the upcoming Gradius II and III releases, so putting all three titles next to each other will reveal the full artwork.
Exclusive color variants from The Yetee and Vinyl Digital have also been confirmed, although no word on when those will be available to order.
The release is priced at $22 and is scheduled to release in mid-September 2018. It can be preordered from Ship To Shore PhonoCo.’s store here.
The Yetee have revealed that they are releasing the soundtracks to the two Tribute Games games Curses N’ Chaos and Wizorb on vinyl. Curses N’ Chaos is composed by Patrice Bourgeault and Wizorb by Jean Chan.
Both are single LP releases housed in standard record jackets. Curses N’ Chaos comes on black and red merge colored vinyl, the jacket features art by Ian, and the release is limited to 500 copies Wilding. Wizorb comes on a picture disc, features art by Drew Wise, and is limited to 250 copies.
And if that’s not enough they are also releasing a new variant of the Ninja Senki soundtrack – a DX classic shuriken picture disc. Also limited to 250 copies.
All 3 titles are priced and $25 and are ready to ship.
Curses N’ Chaos can be ordered here.
Wizorb can be ordered here.
Ninja Senki (both variants) can be ordered here.
We’ve known about this for a while and I think it’s safe to say that it’s one of the most anticipated releases to be announced this year – and now we can preorder it. Yes, the soundtrack to Hideo Kojima’s Snatcher is getting a vinyl release.
The release will be a 2LP pressed on 140g colored vinyl and features the Sega CD version of the soundtrack which is composed by Konami Kukeiha Club. It comes in a gatefold jacket with artwork by Ian Wilding. Also included are two prints of original game art from Konami’s archives.
Four different color variants will be available in total with some being exclusive to certain distributors (see below). The variants are on orange/white/red tri-color (Ship To Shore exclusive), green-in-grey (Ship To Shore exclusive), ultra clear (retail), and red translucent with black splatter (The Yetee exclusive).
The release is priced at $35 and is scheduled to release in Q1 2017. It can be preordered from the following sites:
- Ship To Shore PhonoCo. (tri-color, green-in-grey, and clear)
