Music is an important aspect of video games, so much so that many franchises are known by some of their audio choices and themes. Take for example the Sonic the Hedgehog series, the games have posted fun and upbeat tracks that have kept people engaged for decades. And for some, the Sonic Adventure games had some of the best soundtracks ever. So, one company is going to take that soundtrack and make it into a very special thing…a vinyl soundtrack.
So, get your record players out, cause Brave Wave is teaming up with SEGA to officially release Sonic Adventure Official Soundtrack Vinyl Edition and Sonic Adventure 2 Official Soundtrack Vinyl Edition. Both of these will release this winter. And yes, it’ll be an actual LP of these legendary soundtracks. However, the original songs will be remastered so that they perfectly fit their new setting.
If you’re still worried, take heart in knowing that the Lead Composer and Sound Director for those games, Jun Senoue, helped pick the songs on both records. And the rest of Sonic Team helped out too!
Both SEGA and Brave Wave are really going all-out with this. Even the records themselves are going to be decorated to fit the Sonic theme. The first record will be blue and white to match the blue blur himself. Then, the second will be blue and red to mimic Sonic and Shadow.
As if the soundtrack wasn’t enough, every single copy of the record will also contain an interview with Jun Senoue, and the head of Sonic Team Takashi Iizuka! Through in a lyrics sheet, character art, and some extra other goodies and this is a must have for an Sonic the Hedgehog fan.
Brave Wave will keep interested people posted on when the official date for the release will be, as well as when you can pre-order the records.
