NieR Replicant 4LP box set now up for preorder from Square Enix

As teased recently Square Enix will be releasing a vinyl box set with music from their game NieR Replicant. The set will contain a mix of the newly arranged music from NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139, the piano collections, the orchestral albums, and some solo instrument arrangements. The release is titled “NieR Replicant -10+1 Years-“.

The release will be a black vinyl 4LP box set. Each record will be themed to a different character/set of characters and will feature various takes of music for these characters. Each record will be housed in its own single-pocket jacket and the set features illustrations by Shirow Miwa. The set will also include a download card.

Each individual record in the set is also available to purchase on its own.

The set is priced at ¥9900 and it is scheduled to release around September 15, 2021. It can be preordered from the Japanese Square Enix Store here.

It doesn’t appear that it is available from stores that ship outside of Japan yet, but I think it’s fair to assume that it will show up on other regional Square Enix stores soon.

Final Fantasy IV 30th anniversary vinyl release up for preorder

Square Enix have announced that they will be releasing a Final Fantasy IV vinyl release titled “Song of Heroes” for the game’s 30th anniversary. It will be in a similar concept format as the “Four Souls” release for Final Fantasy III’s anniversary from last year with four new arrangements on one side and four original tracks on the other.

The release will be a single black vinyl LP. It will be housed in a tip-on single-pocket jacket with artwork by Yoshitaka Amano. It will also include a download card for digital copies of the tracks.

The release is priced at ¥3850 and is scheduled to release on August 25, 2021. It can be preordered from the Japanese Square Enix store here.

It is also available to preorder outside of Japan from CDJapan here and Amazon Japan here, however I don’t think there’s any rush to import this from Japan as it will likely become available on both the EU and NA Square Enix stores later on.
