There's a Limited Edition Vinyl Version of the Dark Souls Trilogy Soundtrack on the Way

By Matt Wales on at

Hey, you! Yes, you! Do you like your games hard and called Dark Souls and also, preferably in the form of a trilogy? And do you like your new-fangled video game soundtracks pressed and pumped out as old-fangled listening technology? Well then, have I got a proposition for you! Because Bandai Namco (or whatever it's calling itself this week) has just announced the Dark Souls Vinyl Trilogy.

As its name suggests, the Dark Souls Vinyl Trilogy features all three Dark Souls soundtracks presented as a multi-multi-disc vinyl recording that you can pop out and place on your gramophone when guests come round for tea. Each album even comes printed on different coloured vinyl, as you can see in the announcement video below.

The soundtracks, composed by Motoi Sakuraba and Yuka Kitamura, sound fab anyway, but Badamco is promising that the limited edition vinyls (of which there will be 2,000 copies made in total) will be "captured in a premium sound" and "will give the listener a truly immersive experience". Oh and also, "This high quality trilogy box should be treasured and treated like a collector's piece", at which point, I started to suspect that the press release had better things to do with its time and just wanted to get it over with as fast as possible.

The 9-disc Dark Souls Vinyl Trilogy will set you back £109, and will be available to purchase this autumn. You'll be able to get it from Bandai Namco's online store, which doesn't actually exist yet, so don't expect a link.
