A group of different VGM artists have grouped together to release new arrangements of music from Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy X, Metal Gear 2, Persona 4, Secret Of Mana, Shadow Dancer, Sonic The Hedgehog, Streets Of Rage 2 and Super Castlevania IV on the album “VGM Jams Mixtape Vol. 1”. It is being released through a campaign currently up on Qrates.
If the campaign is successful the release will be a single LP on black vinyl. It will be housed in a regular LP jacket featuring new artwork made for this project.
It is priced at $34.29 and the campaign runs from now and until June 18, 2021. It is scheduled to release 2-3 months after the campaign ends if it reaches its goal of 100 preorders.
The release will be a 2LP cut at 45 RPM and comes in two different color variants – gold & bronze split and silver with red splatter. The split variant will be limited to 1000 copies. It will come in a jacket with new artwork by Jenolab.
Alongside this new release, Mondo will also have black vinyl copies of the sold out Castlevania III vinyl soundtrack for sale. Both releases will be priced at $30 and will go up for sale on July 21, 2017 at noon CST.
So far it’s just been announced that the first release will be Castlevania, which will be available at the San Diego Comic-Con in July. This likely means that a release for the general public will be available online shortly after (which is what they did with their The Last Of Us release).
But this is not today’s only announcement. iam8bit also announced that they will be releasing Petri Alanko’s Quantum Break soundtrack on vinyl. The release will be on 180g white with colored splatter vinyl and will feature new artwork by Christina Mrozik.
The release is limited to 3000 copies and is set for a Q3 2016 release.
