Rare Announces Vinyl Soundtracks for Conker, Viva Piñata, and Battlemaniacs

Rare Studios is producing three more vinyl soundtracks in partnership with iam8bit studios for Conker, Battletoads, and Viva Piñata.

Vinyl is in. Well, it’s been in but video game releases are getting churned out for turn tables more and more often. Rare, the company behind cult classics such as the Conker and Viva Piñata series has announced that they are going to be printing three new vinyl soundtracks.

The soundtracks are being released in partnership with iam8bit, who helped the studio to collaborate on sold-out prints of Battletoads, Banjo-Kazooie, and Perfect Dark. Now, in preparation for the holiday gift season, the duo are releasing Battletoads Battlemaniacs, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, and Viva Piñata.

Battletoads Battlemaniacs, composed by David Wise, is being released as a soundtrack for the first time 25 years after the game’s release. This print will run you $28 USD.

Conker’s Bad Fur Day provides a double-LP, rife with our favorite squirrels stumbling adventures, and features notable songs such as Rock Solid and Sloprano. Since you’re getting two discs, the set is priced at $35 USD.

And finally, for $35 USD and providing a relaxing listening experience is Viva Piñata, another two-disc LP set filled with orchestral overtones.

You can check out iam8bit’s site, where the soundtracks are available alongside commemorative pins and posters. The previous prints’ releases are still sold out.
