Classic ‘Ninja Gaiden’ scores earn a deluxe remaster next year

by John_A

Say what you will about the trend of gaming soundtracks being released on vinyl (I’ve already chimed in), but the upside is that the business move can expose classic tracks to a new audience. Take the brutally difficult Ninja Gaiden, for example. The game originally came out in 1988, so there’s an entire generation of folks who have likely never heard the lauded chiptunes before. The same team responsible for last year’s Street Fighter II vinyl edition, Brave Wave, is at the helm for a remastered version of composer Keiji Yamagishi’s first-ever score, according to The Verge.

Ninja Gaiden: The Definitive Soundtrack includes music from the first three games, spread across two volumes. What’s more, they’ll contain music from the console and the arcade versions. Neither price nor pre-order date has been announced, but if you don’t own a turntable don’t fret: the soundtracks will be offered as digital releases and on CD. You can preview how it sounds just below.
