Data Discs has done a tremendous job re-releasing classic soundtracks on vinyl, including Out Run, Shenmue, Streets of Rage, and Gunstar Heroes. Today, the vinyl blacksmiths announced Shenmue II for pre-order, with an official release window of January 2021.
Following on from our 2015 release of the original Shenmue score, we are proud to finally announce the debut vinyl release of its much-loved sequel, Shenmue II. A selection of beautiful and varied compositions, sourced and selected by SEGA’s Sound Team in Japan, that richly convey protagonist Ryo Hazuki’s journey across Hong Kong and beyond.
Shenmue II is presented as a 180g vinyl edition, carefully remastered in collaboration with SEGA of Japan, packaged in the original cover art and accompanied by two lithographic prints of archival artwork and an obi strip. It has been designed to complement and sit alongside our previous Shenmue release. It is available in the following editions:
– 180g Light Translucent Green and Orange (Limited Edition)
– 180g Light Translucent Green
– 180g Classic Black
If you’re an avid Shenmue collector, you can also purchase an official slipcase that can house both Shenmue I and II vinyl for £12.50.
A limited edition of the Shenmue II vinyl, which features a translucent green with orange color, is only available until Monday September 21st.
