If you liked it Demon’s Souls‘updated score on PlayStation 5 and will be able to listen to it with high fidelity, you’m in luck: Sony and Milan Records are working together to produce a two-disc vinyl set with 21 tracks from the restructured classic for release on June 18.
As you can see in the gallery below, Demon’s Souls Vinyl comes in several hues and patterns, depending on where you pre-order. But whatever the variation, the whole package is very pretty, with original artwork by Australian designers Ken Taylor.
