There seems to be a trend these days in which the soundtrack for video games are being released on vinyl. For those who have enjoyed playing and listening to the music from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, you’ll be pleased to learn that the game’s soundtrack will also be released on vinyl in a rather beautiful packaging that you can see above.
This is thanks to a collaboration between iam8bit and Materia Collective, both of whom have worked together in the past on an Undertale soundtrack. The music will be recorded by the 64-piece Slovak National Symphony Orchestra live at Studio 1 in Bratislava, Slovakia. It will also have its music arranged and composed by Eric Buchhol based on the original soundtrack composed by Koji Kondo.
The artwork of the album is created by Ryan Brinkerhoff that features a gold foil-stamped triforce design on the back. The vinyl is priced at $40 and will be available for pre-order this coming Friday, so fans of the game/franchise, or just vinyl collectors in general, will want to keep an eye out for it.
Like we said, more video games are turning to vinyl releases these days. It is not surprising as based on reports, vinyl sales appear to be on rise. Recently we heard how in the UK, revenue from vinyl sales actually surpassed that of digital album downloads, making it a first.
