Too good 2B true

Japan will see stunning vinyl releases for the soundtracks to Cavia's sombre action-RPG NieR and its PlatinumGames sequel NieR: Automata.

Each game gets a double vinyl set. The NieR Automata set features 15 tracks, while the NieR (or NieR Gestalt & RepliCant, to give its Japanese title) features 20 tracks. All the tracks were selected by series composer Keiichi Okabe.

The vinyls are stored within classy sleeves featuring beautiful, watercolour-style artwork by Tokyo Ghoul illustrator Sui Ishida. A box set of both releases will also be available, featuring the ever-grinning face of Emil, staring back at you.

These look like really classy collector's pieces for die-hard NieR fans. They are scheduled for release in Japan this December at ¥3,600 each, or ¥7,200 for the box set. Pre-orders will go live on September 25.

Alternately, the vinyl sets will also be available to purchase direct from the Square Enix booth at the Tokyo Game Show later this month.
