Debug Records announced yesterday that they are releasing the downtempo Secret of Mana arrangement album Manawave on vinyl and now orders are live.
The release is a single LP available in three color variants – “Mana Tree” green translucent with white swirl colored vinyl (limited to 100 copies), “Upper Land” pink-in-clear colored vinyl, and clear vinyl (exclusive to One Run Records). It will be housed in a single-pocket Japanese-style tip-on jacket with licensed artwork by Secret of Mana-illustrator Hiroo Isono. It will include an obi strip and an insert with liner notes by original composer Hiroki Kikuta.
Square Enix Music in Japan have just announced a Final Fantasy III vinyl release in celebration of the game’s 30th anniversary. It will feature 8 tracks – four arrangements and the original versions of those same four tracks.
It will be a single LP, but there are currently no details on the packaging or how the record will look. It will include a download card for a digital copy of the release.
Materia Collective have just announced that they will be releasing Conspiravision: Deus Ex Remixed on vinyl. It is an album where original Deus Ex composers Alexander Brandon and Michiel van den Bos returns to remix the soundtrack 20 years later.
The release will be a 2LP with one record on pink/purple/black swirl and the other on clear vinyl. It will be housed in a “holographic” gatefold jacket with artwork by Lukasz Sienkiewicz and product design by Rozen.
Wayô Records have launched a Kickstarter campaign for the recording of a new Chrono Cross piano collection album titled “Across The Worlds”.
The album will be arranged by Masashi Hamauzu, Mariam Abounassr, and Akio Noguchi and performed by Benyamin Nuss.
The vinyl release of the album will be a 2LP on 180g dark blue colored vinyl. It will be housed in a gatefold jacket with new art by Kiyoshi Arai. It will come with a booklet with liner notes and comments by the team involved with the project.
The campaign runs from June 7, 2020 and ends on July 7, 2020 and is looking to raise €25,000. The cheapest vinyl tier is priced at €50. If the campaign is successful they are expecting to release the album in December, 2020.
Yetee Records are teaming up with Materia Collective once again. This time to release an arrangement EP with new takes on the music of classic JRPG Chrono Trigger. This new release titled Guardia: The X-Strike Sessions will be the second in their X-series following their Star Fox EP from last year.
The EP will feature music from R23X, Lena Raine, Smooth McGroove, Joel Corelitz, Equip, Slim Girls, and bryface.
It will be a 10″ on yellow vinyl with red splatter. It comes in a 10″ jacket with lenticular artwork by Drew Wise. The release is limited to 500 copies.
It was announced a little while ago now that Square Enix would be releasing a selection of tracks from the original Final Fantasy VII as well as from Final Fantasy VII Remake together on vinyl. Now official orders open in a few days (and some distributors have already opened up preorders).
The release will be a 2LP picture disc – with art on one disc from the original Final Fantasy VII and art on the other from Remake. It appears to be housed in a triple gatefold jacket.
It’s being advertised as a “limited made-to-order printing”, and it appears they will try to take as many preorders as they can within the production limits of their pressing plant.
