Official Okami Vinyl Box Set Revealed, Now Available For Pre-Order
Many gamers, when asked, would very quickly list Capcom’s ‘Okami’ as one of their favorite video games of all time, and for good reason: the blend of its unique art style, thrilling celestial brush mechanics, and thought-provoking story cemented itself into easily our hearts when it released back in 2006 for the PlayStation 2. With the recent re-release for modern consoles, fans once again had a reason to pick up the celestial brush and paint their way through the game. Now, Data Discs is celebrating the timeless classic by releasing an official Okami vinyl box set for the game’s stellar soundtrack.
Revealed over on the official Data Discs website, the Okami 4LP vinyl box set comes in three different versions, all of which retail for £64.99. Each version of the box set comes with a 40-page artbook, as well as a double-sided lithograph containing illustrations from Capcom. Additionally, each purchase comes with a download code to download the soundtrack online. Check out the contents of the vinyl box set below:
Here’s the breakdown of the box set, courtesy of the retailer:
“Originally released in 2006 and composed by Masami Ueda, Hiroshi Yamaguchi, Rei Kondoh and Akari Groves, the music of OKAMI perfectly embodies the creative beauty of the game and its recurring themes of restoration and resolve. Using traditional Japanese instruments and inspired by distant folklore, the score moves between peacefulness and danger, colour and darkness, echoing the dualities of the natural world and transporting the listener to an ancient Nippon that never existed, yet feels like a half-remembered dream. OKAMI is one of the most contemplative, unique and unequivocally beautiful game scores ever made.”
