Bandai Namco Entertainment have announced that they will be releasing a series of music releases titled Asobi no Oto. The first in the series will be Volume 0, which is now up for preorder.
There’s some contradiction between the tracklists from the announcement and the store pages, but the following games should at least be represented alongside a few others: Wonder Momo, Pac-Man, Xevious, New Rally-X, Genpei Tōma Den, Kotoba no Puzzle: Mojipittan Daijiten, Taiko no Tatsujin, Muscle March, and Pac-Mania.
The release will be a single LP on black vinyl. It will be housed in a regular LP jacket with new Pac-Man artwork. It will also include a digital download code.
Last year it was rumored that Mondo had announced the release of the Katamari Damacy soundtrack on vinyl at MondoCon. This was later confirmed by Mondo, and now they have properly announced its release!
The release will be a 180g 2LP with one disc on green & purple swirl and the other on red & white swirl colored vinyl. Each disc will be housed in a screen-printed poly-bag and the release will come in a gatefold jacket. Art is handled by WeBuyYourKids.
It will be limited to 3000 copies, but it sounds like retail copies might be available later.
Orders open on March 21, 2018 and it is scheduled to begin shipping early April 2018. It will be priced at $35.
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).
