In addition to announcing the release date at today’s Microsoft conference, Iam8bit and Studio MDHR also announced a special edition 4 LP vinyl set for the game’s soundtrack. Here’s the details straight from Iam8bit’s site:
Iam8bit is proud to collaborate with Studio MDHR to bring you this period-specific thrill ride of jazz jollies and big band boisterousness – an outrageously rare treat comprised of four jam-packed records featuring some of the coolest and smoothest tunes you’ve ever grooved along to.
This is a spectacular sensation of a vinyl set, comprised of so much delicious, fully-orchestral decadence that we couldn’t resist creating a ridiculously complex custom companion package, stripped straight from the 1930s. Designer Jango Snow spared no detail in collaborating with the maniacally brilliant Studio MDHR to create this beautiful folio design, affectionately inspired by record sets almost a century old.
This beautiful looking vinyl release is set to ship in Q3 of this year, likely right around the time the game itself is released.
