Everyone’s favourite 8-bit post-hole digger (or Knight) is receiving the vinyl soundtrack treatment from Brave Wave, with pre-orders available later today. The 2 LP 12-inch soundtrack is encased in a gorgeous gatefold featuring exclusive art by Mega Man and Pokemon artist Hitoshi Ariga. The booklet contains an interview with co-composer Manami Matsumae, as well as art from the original game. Purchases include a download for the digital release. The Vinyl will be a bilingual release featuring the same content in English and Japanese.
If you don’t own a turntable, you can also grab the soundtrack on CD, as a digital download or stream it via Apple Music and Spotify. Brave Wave is also offering two poster designs featuring artwork by Hitoshi Ariga, modelled after the vinyl cover and inner-gatefold art. Both posters will come in A1 size. Brave Wave is expecting high demand so you may want to get in ASAP.
