Ship to Shore PhonoCo has announced that they will release a vinyl edition of the original soundtrack for the beloved JRPG Suikoden. The records will be printed on two marble discs in ocean blue or marble colouring with original Japanese artwork of the game printed on the outer sleeves. The announcement came via the company’s official Twitter account, accompanied by a sliver of the music listeners can expect. Check out below!

Suikoden was originally released for the Sony PlayStation in 1995 and acts as the first entry in a longstanding JRPG series. Its story focuses on conflict and intrigue rife in a realm known as the Northern Continent, framed alongside a series-spanning game conceit known as the 108 Stars of Destiny. In Suikoden and its four sequels, each of the Stars of Destiny is a recruitable character.

If your curiosity for the series is piqued, Konami has recently announced that the first and second games are set to be fully remastered in the form of Suikoden I & II HD Remaster: Gate Rune and Dunan Unification Wars and released in 2023 at an unspecified date. If you’re curious about what RPGFan thinks of the series, feel free to check out our extensive primer penned by Wes Iliff.

The record is available now to pre-order with Ship to Shore PhonoCo handling US distribution ($40 USD), Black Screen Records handling European distribution (€42 EUR), Vinyl Guru handling UK distribution (£42.99 GBP), and Very OK Vinyl handing Canadian distribution ($58 CAD). Ship to Shore expects orders to ship in Q3 2023.
