New Pressing: Mother 2 OST

News / September 6, 2017

The soundtrack to Mother 2 (Earthbound in the U.S.) is getting repressed through Ship To Shore Phono Co. The pressing in 2016 has sold out, but a new variant of “Meteor Splatter” will go on sale Thursday, at noon. Records will then ship out in the fourth quarter of this year, so there will be a shipping wait.

MOTHER 2, released as EarthBound in the West, is revered as one of the most offbeat and memorable RPGs. Citing influence from artists such as Brian Wilson, Frank Zappa and John Lennon, Suzuki and Tanaka created a diverse soundscape quite unlike anything that came before it.

Remastered specifically for vinyl and released outside of Japan for the first time ever, MOTHER 2 is a must have for video game music and soundtrack fans.
