Brave Wave’s Shovel Knight: King Of Cards 3LP now up for preorder

Back in 2016 Brave Wave announced that they would release the soundtrack to Shovel Knight and all its upcoming expansions. Now more than 4 years later they are readying their final Shovel Knight release – the soundtrack to Shovel Knight: King Of Cards.

And it’s not just the King Of Cards, but it will also feature the music from Shovel Knight: Showdown as well as a selection of tracks from the original Shovel Knight, that was not included on the first vinyl release.

The release will be a 3LP with one record on gold, one on red and one on white colored vinyl. It appears to be housed in a gatefold jacket that will feature new artwork by Hitoshi Ariga with coloring by Ayano Koshiro. It will include a booklet with artwork and liner notes as well as a download card.
As always there will also be a signed version available, which will come with an A4 poster signed by artists Hitoshi Ariga.

They are also releasing a Shovel Knight Treasure Trove box set, which includes all four Shovel Knight vinyl albums together in a box. If you already have the previous albums you can buy the box set separately as well.

The 3LP is priced at $50/€60 ($60/€60 for the signed version) and the box set is priced at €165. They are all scheduled to release in March, 2021.

The 3LP can be preordered from BigWax here now and the box set can be preordered here.

The 3LP signed version can also be preordered from Limited Run Games here and the standard version here. The box set here is not listed on Limited Run Games as of posting, but I will update with a link later. Limited Run Games will open preorders on 10AM ET today.

Brave Wave to release the Shovel Knight soundtrack on vinyl

Brave Wave have updated their Generation Series page to include a Shovel Knight: The Definitive Soundtrack release on 2LP black vinyl. The release have been done in cooperation with original composers Jake Kaufman and Manami Matsumae and is mastered specifically for vinyl.

The release will feature brand new artwork from Hitoshi Ariga who have previously done artwork for Pokémon and Mega Man. The artwork have not been announced yet, but Brave Wave have released a sketch on their announcement page.

There’s no preorder or release date yet, but Brave Wave encourages people to sign up to preorder news on their site.

UPDATE: Brave Wave have answered some questions regarding this release over on NeoGAF. The release will feature 43 tracks which have been chosen and adjusted by Jake Kaufman for this release.

In addition, they plan on sending out the release date two weeks prior to shipping. So there will not be a long wait between ordering and receiving the release.

UPDATE 2: Preorders have now opened for the soundtrack. The title will be on 2LP “armor blue” vinyl.
