Can’t Afford Importing VGM? Capcom’s Got You Covered!

Anyone who is an avid VGM collector like myself knows that importing soundtracks can get pretty pricey. Not only is music more expensive overseas, but factor in shipping costs, and you have quite a conundrum if you’re short on cash! Fortunately, Sumthing Else Music has partnered with Capcom to release some recent and upcoming albums both digitally and physically outside of Japan.

Joining the ranks of Devil May Cry 4 and Bionic Commando Rearmed, which were released last year, are a variety of soundtracks for recently released and upcoming games that hadn’t even had soundtrack announcements yet. These include Street Fighter IV Original Soundtrack, Resident Evil 5 Original Soundtrack, Bionic Commando and Dark Void.

As of this posting, the pricing for these albums are not known, but according to Sumthing Distribution, both the Street Fighter IV Original Soundtrack and Resident Evil 5 Original Soundtrack will be released on May 26th of this year.

Are you excited about any of the upcoming soundtracks? Are you happy to see that game soundtracks are finally making their way to the West? I know I am! It’ll definitely help put less strain on my wallet, although I do hope that it becomes more encompassing than just Capcom in the future.
