Ikaruga Soundtrack to Release on Vinyl Through Data Discs | Merchandise

Thursday, October 22nd, 2020

Data Discs return with another Treasure shoot-em-up classic as they gear up to give a vinyl release to the Ikaruga soundtrack.

Originally released in arcades in 2001 and then the Dreamcast in 2002, Ikaruga is a legendary, vertically-scrolling shoot-em-up famed for its use of a colour-shifting gimmick. This allows the player to absorb enemy fire of the opposite colour to your ship, but enemy fire of the same colour can damage you. The game has subsequently released for GameCube, Xbox 360, PC, Switch and PS4.

The vinyl release of the game’s soundtrack comes on three colourways: a clear with black and white splatter special edition record, a white record and a black record. Also bundled with the release are 4 lithographic prints of artwork by Yasushi Suzuki. Pre-orders go live for the release via Data Discs’ website on Saturday 24th of October 2020. The records are expected to ship around the 20th of November.

Data Discs Release Digital Remasters of Streets of Rage Series Soundtracks, £6 Each On Bandcamp

Monday, March 9th, 2020

If you’ve ever wanted to indulge in Data Discs’ sublime work, but lack the vinyl player to do so, good news; they’ve digitally remastered the Streets of Rage trilogy’s soundtracks, and you can now  download them from Bandcamp! Of note, these are masters made specifically for digital playback, as opposed to the analogue format of the vinyl releases.

From Data Discs themselves:

Continuing our partnership with legendary composer Yuzo Koshiro, and just in time to coincide with our label’s fifth anniversary, it’s with great pleasure that we can finally announce our digital remasters of the iconic STREETS OF RAGE trilogy.

Over the past year we’ve been back in the studio, revisiting our previous work and remastering the trilogy for digital distribution. As with our vinyl releases, all three albums were sourced using a combination of the original NEC-PC88 files (captured and supplied by Koshiro-san himself) and a range of Japanese Mega Drive consoles. We are honoured to be distributing these classic albums on digital platforms, so they can reach an ever wider audience and maintain their rightful place as some of the most important and influential game scores ever made.

All three albums are available to purchase today from our new BANDCAMP store, priced at 6.00 GBP each (in a range of lossy and lossless formats). They will also be available on other digital platforms at a later date.

That last bit gives us a little bit of hope that we might see these legendary soundtracks join streaming services at some point – time will tell!
