Brave Wave Productions is pleased to present Shovel Knight The Definitive Soundtrack in limited edition CD and vinyl formats. The release marks the second entry into their acclaimed Generation Series, which began in 2015 with the smash hit Street Fighter II The Definitive Soundtrack. The series continues the tradition of enriching some of the best music videogames have to offer, with beautiful custom artwork by Mega Man and Pokémon illustrator Hitoshi Ariga, composer commentary from Jake "virt" Kaufman and Manami Matsumae, and of course, the brilliant award-winning soundtrack from the beloved Yacht Club Games title, Shovel Knight.
Shovel Knight The Definitive Soundtrack is currently available for pre-order on Bandcamp:
"We've been working on a number of retro game soundtracks since the release of our Street Fighter II restoration," notes Mohammed Taher, Creative Director at Brave Wave Productions, "But it was important for us to follow up that iconic soundtrack with a more contemporary one. Our intent is to emphasize the importance of promoting quality game music, and not just retro game music. Twenty years from now, we will look back and wonder how Jake Kaufman was able to flex the ancient VRC6 chip to its furthest limit."
In addition to to the two-disc compact disc and double-LP releases, Brave Wave Productions is offering two exclusive posters by Hitoshi Ariga, also available on their Bandcamp store. To create his custom artwork for the soundtrack collection and posters, Ariga followed on his tradition when drawing Mega Man by playing the Shovel Knight game in full beforehand, paying close attention to the game's world and characters.
