Limited Run Games had prepared to release the soundtracks to action RPG Dust: An Elysian Tail and beat ’em up Phantom Breaker: Battle Grounds Overdrive on vinyl for Record Store Day back in April. The pandemic happened and pushed the date multiple times until now – the first RSD Drop of 2020 where these will finally be available to order.
Both releases will be 2LP set on 180g vinyl. Dust will be housed in a gatefold jacket and it’s not yet clear if Phantom Breaker will as well. Both are limited to 400 copies each.
They are both priced at $35 and are in-hand and ready to ship. They will go up today at 9AM ET alongside leftovers copies of past releases and variants and some new distributed titles.
Limited Run Games have opened up preorders for the vinyl soundtrack to action game Neon City Riders.
The release will be a 2LP with one record on clear with black splatter and the other on purple with black splatter colored vinyl. It will be housed in a gatefold jacket with game art and is limited to 400 copies.
Brave Wave announced a partnership with Sunsoft late last month and now we are seeing the fruits of that as they are opening preorders for the vinyl soundtracks to Blaster Master Zero and Blaster Master Zero 2. Both of these will be part of their Generation Series.
Both soundtracks will be available individually on 180g 2LP sets housed in gatefold jackets with game art. Additionally they will also be made available together in a 4LP box set housing both gatefold sets. The box set will come in two variants – a standard black variant as well as a limited edition variant on pink, red, blue and purple colored vinyl. The limited edition will be signed by composer Ippo Yamada and will be limited to 550 copies total.
All variants of these releases will include a booklet with artwork and liner notes from people involved with the game. A download card for a digital copy of the soundtrack will also be included.
The standard editions will be priced at $38/€36 each, while the standard box will be $90 and the limited box set $100/€90. They are available to preorder now from BigWax from these links:

Both releases will include a digital download code for the full digital soundtracks to their respective game.
