Rare has revealed that the original Battletoads soundtrack, composed by legendary video game composer David Wise, is getting an official release. To celebrate the recently announced Rare Replay for Xbox One, the Battletoads music is getting pressed to vinyl. The 180-gram LP is limited to a 300 copy run and is only being sold to fans at San Diego Comic-Con. The cover is illustrated by the artist Nick Gazin, who has previously produced the album artwork for the hip-hop group Run the Jewels. Along with cool art, the physical record itself features a mesmerizing blend of bright and dark greens and blues that swirl together. The Battletoads logo is prominently displayed at the center of the album.
Comic-Con goers will also have the opportunity to pick up another limited edition Rare item. The 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Print will be limited to a 400 copy run and features drawings of the most popular Rare characters. Conker, Joanna Dark, Banjo and Kazooie, and Fulgore are all present on this gorgeous print. Each copy is hand-signed and the artwork comes from artist iam8bit.
Both the vinyl record and the print will be available for purchase at the Xbox Lounge inside the Manchester Hyatt during the first three days of San Diego Comic-Con.
