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.
Wayô Records have just announced their next upcoming release, which is the soundtrack to the classic JRPG Grandia and accompanying arrangement album Vent together in one box set. Alongside this set they are also releasing a new Noriyuki Iwadare tribute arrangement album titled Twelve Doors.
The Grandia/Vent release will be a 180g 3LP box set. The box features new game art by Toshiaki Hontani and will include printed inner sleeves and a 20-page booklet featuring artwork and liner notes from the game’s development team.
It will be available in a standard edition on mint green vinyl as well as a limited edition on “Saturn” green marbled vinyl, which is limited to 500 copies and also includes a piano sheet music for the game’s main theme and a shikishi print with art by Toshiaki Hontani.
Twelve Doors will be a 180g 2LP set. It will include a 12-page booklet.
The Grandia standard set is priced at €60, the limited at €67.50 while Twelve Doors is €30. They are all scheduled to release in Summer, 2020.
Wayô Records will be releasing a selection of tracks from Benyamin Nuss’ piano arrangement album “Benyamin Nuss Plays Uematsu” for its 10th anniversary. The album features piano renditions of music from Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey and the Final Fantasy series as well as two tribute pieces that Nuss and Uematsu wrote for each other.
The album will be a single LP housed in a regular LP jacket. It will be available in two variants – a standard black variant, and a collector’s edition variant on black and white split colored vinyl. The collector’s edition will be limited to 300 copies and also comes with a photograph signed by Benyamin Nuss.
A few days ago Wayô Records announced that they would be releasing the soundtrack to the 2019 Samurai Shodown game on vinyl, and now preorders have opened.
The release will be a 2LP on red marbled vinyl. It comes in a gatefold jacket with game art and printed inner sleeves. The first print run is limited to 500 copies. In addition, the first 150 preorders will also include a shikishi art print signed by Saji Yumi and Hiroshi Yamasoe.
They’ve been teasing this campaign for a while, but now Wayô Records’ campaign for a release of both original and new arranged music from the Little Big Adventure games (known in the US and Asia as Relentless: Twinsen’s Adventure and Twinsen’s Odyssey) is live. And with vinyl options of course.
The release will contain original music from both Little Big Adventure games as well as a new symphonic suite arranged by original series composer Philippe Vachey.
The vinyl release will be a 140g 2LP on blue and gold vinyl. They will be housed in a gatefold jacket with original art by Didier Chanfray. It will also include a shikishi board with game artwork.
The vinyl tier starts at €49 and vinyl rewards are scheduled to begin shipping between December 2019 and March 2020 depending on manufacturing times.
Wayô Records announced a while back that they would be releasing a selection of music from the Skies Of Arcadia soundtrack on vinyl and now they’re taking preorders.
Outside of original music the release will also feature an extra LP with new piano arrangements of music from the game.
The release will be a 180g 3LP box set. The records will come in individual printed sleeves with artwork and the box set will feature new artwork by Itsuki Hoshi. The first limited print of the box set will feature 2 LPs on marbled blue vinyl (limited to 500 copies), while the regular print will feature 2LPs on opaque blue vinyl. The third LP for both sets will be on black vinyl.
The box set will also come with a 24-page booklet featuring artwork and comments from the original team behind the game.
The first 250 preorders will also receive an shikishima board with the cover art illustration.
