PULSTAR The Definitive Soundtrack comes to CD & Vinyl in June 2019! Pre-orders begin in mid-May!

SNK AND BRAVE WAVE CONTINUE THEIR EXCITING PARTNERSHIP TO BRING CLASSIC NEO GEO SOUNDTRACKS TO CD AND VINYL

SNK and Brave Wave Productions are proud to reveal their third collaboration, Generation Series 009: PULSTAR for CD and vinyl. Originally released for NEO GEO in 1995, 2D shooter PULSTAR became a cult classic among SNK fans, featuring fast-paced gameplay, graphics and music. The soundtrack is composed by ex-SNK composer Harumi Fujita.

PULSTAR The Definitive Soundtrack features the entirety of the original music remastered and restored to the highest possible quality, in collaboration and consultation with SNK and original composer Harumi Fujita. This re-release features both the Neo Geo AES and Neo Geo CD versions of the PULSTAR soundtrack, giving fans a choice of which arrangements to listen to.

PULSTAR The Definitive Soundtrack on CD and vinyl will feature a booklet containing artwork from the SNK archives, in addition to in-depth track-by-track liner notes written by composer Fujita herself. Fujita recalls her feelings on each song, detailing the methodology in which they were created and what inspired their direction, which includes historical events that occurred in Japan during the mid-1990s.

PULSTAR The Definitive Soundtrack features an exclusive cover drawn during the game’s development but has never been publicly revealed until now. Fans of the original package design will find it reproduced faithfully in the center gatefold.

The vinyl release will come on 2 LPs, with Disc 1 (Sides A and B) dedicated to the Neo Geo AES version and Disc 2 (Sides C and D) dedicated to the Neo Geo CD version. The following variants will be available in North America, Australia and Europe:

2-LP Vinyl

  • 2-LP Signed Limited Edition (limited to 150 copies) - US $35 / €35

  • 2-LP Standard Edition - US$35 / €35

CD Edition

  • 1-CD Set: Standard Edition - US$15 / €15

NOTE: Euro (€) prices include VAT. US Dollar (US$) prices DO NOT include any applicable sales tax.

SNK and Brave Wave plan to continue their partnership through 2019 and beyond. Neo Geo fans can expect many of their favorite classic soundtracks to make their way to CD and vinyl in new and unprecedented quality, under the same award-winning team at Brave Wave who previously worked on the Billboard-charted Street Fighter II The Definitive Soundtrack and the two-volume Ninja Gaiden The Definitive Soundtrack.
