Genso Suikoden Tierkreis Soundtrack Announced… A Troubling Trend From Konami

Have I ever mentioned how much I love VGMdb?  I was browsing the release calendar as I often do, and happened across this new listing for the Genso Suikoden Tierkreis soundtrack, which we we found out last month will be scored by Norikazu Miura.  Well, he’s not the only one on board, as Yoshino Aoki (who we talked about in our Breath of Fire III review) and Basiscape’s Masaharu Iwata are also credited as contributors to the score.  I’m particularly curious about Iwata’s involvement.

So, what’s this troubling trend that I mentioned to grab your attention?  Well, just like the upcoming Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia soundtrack, this album is apparently being released as a part of a special edition set that comes with the game, an art book, bookmarks, drama albums, and other goodies.  While the soundtrack will definitely make an awesome bonus, I’m already hesitant about shelling out over $100 USD for a Japanese copy of the game to get the soundtrack.  Can we get some separate soundtrack releases, Konami?

How will this trend impact your ability to secure some of these sure-to-be-awesome soundtracks?  What are your thoughts regarding the involvement of Yoshino Aoki and Masaharu Iwata?
