[Update] Brave Wave has confirmed to SEGA Nerds that the Sonic Adventure 1&2 vinyls will be coming West – we did assume this was the case, but didn’t want to say for sure without confirmation. Still no word on release dates, so stay tuned!
[Original post] The Japanese music label, Brave Wave, has announced that it will be bringing both the Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2 soundtrack to vinyl this Winter!
Not much more was said on release date or pricing,
or whether or not it will be available in the West (as it is a Japanese-based label). However, I’d like to think that they will be available worldwide, because* the company promoted it, in English, through its Twitter feed and on its website. [*Vinyls confirmed for western release, see update above].
Both albums will feature two double-sided LPs and one thing they have announced is the full track-listing for both vinyls and more details in press release, below:
