Novu Records to release the soundtracks to Kingdom Hearts I & II as well as Metal Gear Solid 1 on vinyl?

I received a tweet today informing me of a new vgm vinyl label called Novu Records along with a link to their site. Now the site itself may not reveal much at first glance, but after signing up for their newsletter you’re greeted with this message:

This is all there is to it at the moment, hence the question mark in the title. As there is no other information about this new label and these releases I’m considering this a rumor for now. But I’ll be following up on these news as more is revealed.

New label announces Street Fighter II Arcade OST on vinyl

A new label dedicated to releasing video game music on physical media called Generation Series have announced that it’s releasing the soundtrack to Street Fighter II Arcade on vinyl and CD.

Generation series appears to be a sublabel to Brave Wave, which is a label run by VGM fans and have previously released alternate versions and “inspired by”-VGM soundtracks on CD and digital.

The release info notes:

The soundtrack release will include new remasters of both CPS-1 and CPS-2 versions of the arcade game, extracted directly from the arcade boards and approved by original composer Yoko Shimomura.

The vinyl will be on translucent red and will feature art prints from Capcom’s archives as well as liner notes from Yoko Shimomura. See the artwork below:
