Ship To Shore PhonoCo. have opened up preorders for the vinyl soundtrack to the arcade shoot ’em up Darius II.
The release will be a single LP available in two variants – a red splatter colored vinyl variant (exclusive to Ship To Shore), and a clear vinyl variant. It will be housed in gatefold jacket with game art and will include liner notes by composer Hisayoshi Ogura and games journalist Anthony John Agnello.
A few days ago Ship To Shore PhonoCo. announced the third entry in their Arcade Classics series of Taito music by Zuntata. This new release will feature music from Bubble Bobble, Bubble Symphon, Gun Frontier, PuLiRuLa, and RayForce.
The release itself will be a single LP on clear vinyl with “Bub and Bob” blue and green splatter. It will be housed in a gatefold jacket and includes liner notes byJeremy Parish.
Ship To Shore PhonoCo. announced last year that Zuntata’s soundtrack to 1987 shoot-em-up Darius would be the second entry in their Taito Arcade Classics series.
The release will be a single LP housed in a gatefold jacket with liner notes by composer Hisayoshi Ogura and games write Anthony Agnello. The release will be available in two color variants – ‘Silver Hawk, Player 1’ red and ‘Silver Hawk, Player 2’ blue.
It had previously been announced that we’d be getting some Night Striker music on vinyl and it looks like this is the release for that. In addition, this compilation will also feature music from the games Metal Black and Elevator Action Returns.
There are no specifics on a tracklist (other than what can be seen on the mockup label) and it appears that a solid blue color variant will be available.
No specific news on a release date either, but the mockup image was followed by the words “Coming very, very soon”, so I suspect we’ll be hearing more soon. I’ll update this post when more is announced.
