Featuring the music of game composer Austin Wintory (flOw, Journey, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate) with performances by a very talented group of musicians, the Banner Saga 2 soundtrack is getting a 2LP vinyl release, and is available for pre-order now. The vinyl release features exclusive artwork by Banner Saga series art director Arnie Jorgensen. The audio has also been optimized for vinyl release by Telegraph Mastering Studio.
iam8bit will have the 2LP, 180-gram vinyl release available for $40.00, and is already taking pre-orders ahead of the release’s Q3 2016 ship date. Alternately, you can head to Wintory’s Bandcamp page to purchase the entire soundtrack now for $6 or more – more would certainly be appreciated – or even his entire Bandcamp discography for as low as under $45!
Known in Japan and Europe as the “Fortissimo Edition,” the Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Special Edition will launch alongside the standalone release of the game on June 24 and will be available via GameStop and Amazon.com. Shown above, the special edition comes with the Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE game for Wii U, a 5″x8″ color artbook, a six-song soundtrack CD, six song cards, a sticker sheet, and DLC codes for all five planned sets of DLC – which would cost $1.99 each if purchased separately.
The game will be making its playable debut at PAX East in Boston this weekend, as will the Nintendo 3DS titles Kirby: Planet Robobot and Monster Hunter Generations. Be sure to check out the full press release after the break for more information. Will you be heading to PAX?
On this week’s episode of The Post Game Zone, Lehew takes a look at a remaster of a game no one has heard of. It is made by Double Fine, though, so it’s going to be crazy. Time for Lehew to explain Day Of The Tentacle Remastered!
Day Of The Tentacle Remastered is now available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, PC, and Mac.
Be sure to check out new episodes of The Post Game Zone every Monday!
You are a lone individual heading to Kholat Syakhl (which translates to “dead mountain” in English). Your job is to investigate the disappearance and deaths of nine Russian college students who were found in random locations over the spawn of three to four months, all with little to no physical damage to their bodies. You are dropped off in a desolate town at the edge of the mountain outside of the Dyatlov Pass. Cold and with no clear direction on where to start, you head off into the snowy mountains hoping to find any clue or shelter before nightfall.
From now through Halloween, players of Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire can log into Pokémon Bank to obtain the legendary trio of Regirock, Regice, and Registeel. Not only will the Regi trio arrive at level 50, but they’ll come with their Hidden Abilities: Regirock withStury, Regice with Ice Body, and Registeel with Light Metal.
You’ll receive them one at a time through Pokémon Bank, so you’ll need to sign in and out a few times. You’ll also only be able to receive them once, so cross your fingers for some good natures and IVs. Once you’ve received the Regis in Pokémon Bank, you can use the Pokémon Link feature in your copy of X/Y/OR/AS to transfer the legendary trio into your games.
Again, these Bank-exclusive event distributions will be going on through October 31st, but don’t delay or you might forget – like I did with the evolved Unova starters. Be sure to check out the full press release after the break for more information!
Heard yesterday’s announcement of the massive 8-disc soundtrack for Fire Emblem Fates releasing in Japan next month and just can’t wait to order it? You’re in luck! Online retailers Amazon Japan (link) and CDJapan (link) have begun taking pre-orders of the highly coveted music collection. CDJapan offers it for a cheaper ¥6,296 (about $56), but shipping will be over $20 if you don’t want to wait several weeks. Amazon Japan offers it for ¥6,800 but offers much cheaper – yet still quite protective – shipping.
As a reminder, the 8 discs include 7 music CDs containing 134 tracks and 14 hours of audio, while an additional DVD contains HD versions of the games’ video cutscenes. The soundtrack also includes a 24-page booklet containing artwork and production notes. If that wasn’t enough incentive to pre-order, know that all first press copies of the soundtrack will come with can badges featuring Corrin.
