Resident Evil 2 originally launched in 1998 and is considered a cult classic. The title features tense exploration and puzzle-solving gameplay that are staples in the series even to this day. For those unfamiliar with the story, players join rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City. The illness transforms the population into deadly zombies who just want to kill.
Aside from the gameplay, the soundtrack is widely regarded as one of the best in early games. While you can purchase it through a number of retailers like iTunes, it's coming to vinyl this year. Today, Capcom and Laced Records announced that the Resident Evil Original Soundtrack and the Resident Evil 2 Original Soundtrack will make their "spine-chilling debut" as a double vinyl collection in 2019.
Each soundtrack has been remastered for this release so it sounds exceptional. If you're an audiophile, you'll be pleased to know that each vinyl has been pressed onto heavyweight records. This should guarantee longevity and superior sound quality.
Even to this day, there's something about owning and playing a vinyl that makes it a magical experience. If you want to purchase a record player, they're going for roughly $50 on Amazon at the moment. The Resident Evil soundtracks should be available for preorder soon, too.
