Ship to Shore PhonoCo. is releasing the soundtrack to the 2008 shoot ’em up Gradius ReBirth on vinyl for the first time.

The game’s soundtrack is releasing as a double-vinyl album, pressed on two black and blue vinyl discs. The album comprises 34 tracks of music by Konami Kukeiha Club (Konami’s in-house sound team who also composed the soundtracks to games such as Policenauts and Castlevania: The Adventure ReBirth). The music in Gradius ReBirth features updated ‘remixes’ of the original Gradius score.

The Gradius ReBirth 2xLP soundtrack can be pre-ordered from the Ship to Shop PhonoCo. online store where it’s expected to ship in April.
