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:
