‘Shadow of the Colossus’ soundtrack gets pressed

News / Preorders / January 25, 2018

The Kow Otani-penned soundtrack to Shadow of the Colossus is being released on vinyl through iam8bit. The 2xLP set is on white and blue translucent vinyl. Album art is by Nimit Malavia and the packaging is a tri-fold (inner gatefold shown above).

The view from atop a colossus is nothing short of majestic. A visual feast, sure – but its composer Kow Otani’s score that fully embodies the emotion felt whilst ascending each epic creature. Sweeping, transcendent and awe-inspiring, the music of Shadow of the Colossus makes it clear that our dear hero, Wander, isn’t slaying these mega-beasts as though they are villains, but instead is unlocking ancient magic for the greater good of our world. At long last, the legendary soundtrack to one of the most adored games in PlayStation history – enhanced with additional orchestral accompaniment AND remastered – is available on vinyl for the FIRST. TIME. EVER!

The records will ship out sometime in the second quarter of 2018.
