Available to pre-order this Saturday.
Video game music label Data Discs has announced the soundtrack to shoot ’em up game Radiant Silvergun is getting a double-vinyl release in a range of three colourways.
The game was developed by Treasure and originally released in Japan back in 1998 for arcade machines and subsequently ported to the Sega Saturn in the the same year. Radiant Silvergun was eventually ported to the Xbox 360 too in 2011.
The game’s soundtrack, composed by Hitoshi Sakimoto who’s known for the Final Fantasy Tactics and Valkyria Chronicles series, has been pressed on two 180g vinyl discs. The first disc contains the original compositions while the second includes the Sega Saturn versions.
This Radiant Silvergun 2xLP vinyl release comprises three variants: ‘Classic Black’, ‘Translucent Orange’, and an ‘Orange/Red/Clear’ split-and-splatter limited edition. Every colourway will, for a limited time, come with a sticker sheet.
The album includes a double-sided lithographic print, fold-out poster, and original Treasure artwork.
Pre-orders will be available from the Data Discs website from 19:00 GMT on 7th December. UK shipping is expected before Christmas but due to the holiday rush could be delayed until January 2020.
A couple of soundtrack previews have been posted to Data Discs’ Soundcloud. The tracks “Debris” and “There is Life Everywhere” have been embedded below.
