Hey there, you audiophile with your fancy new retro turntable, pay attention. Bandai Namco has announced that the Dark Souls Vinyl Trilogy is coming soon. Watch and listen:
Dark Souls Vinyl Trilogy
Bring the Age of Fire to your turntable this Fall 2017 with the exclusive DARK SOULS, THE VINYL TRILOGY, a 9-vinyl collector box that includes all the Dark Souls orchestral themes composed by Motoi Sakuraba and Yuka Kitamura!
There will only be 2000 of these available and will go for £109 and for now will be available in the EU (but that may hopefully change). The boxed set consists of 9 differently colored albums that collect every one of those signature score pieces that made our hair stand up on edge, as well as functioned as the soundtrack to our death. There is no release date and the set can’t be purchased yet, but will be available directly from Bandai Namco at some point in the future.
The music of the Dark Souls series is possibly its most underrated element, and tends to be overlooked in favor of the game’s signature combat and cryptic lore hunting. Upon closer listen, the franchise’s score holds its own as a modern classic.
Thoughts on the Dark Souls Vinyl Trilogy? Many of us own the soundtracks digitally, but this is one collector’s item that may be worth having especially if you’re of the camp that believes Analog>Digital. Prepare to Unwind.
