Sega is announcing a whole host of official Sonic the Hedgehog memorabilia in time for the series’ 26th anniversary. If Sonic the Hedgehog-branded shoes aren’t your thing, now the company has announced an official vinyl soundtrack release for Sonic Mania.
The new set of two vinyl records includes select tracks from the game’s soundtrack by composer Tee Lopes. Featured above, you can view the exclusive new gatefold art featuring Sonic, Tails, & Knuckles.
Here’s some more shots of the vinyl, plus the inner artwork:
The soundtrack will come in three variations: Sonic Blue, Classic Black, and a Limited Edition version, and is going up for pre-order sometime mid-July, for $19.99.
Sonic Mania is launching across PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One on August 15th.
