Capcom and Laced Records team up for a Resident Evil 4 soundtrack release on vinyl

Evil sounds

I can't say that I remember much of the music in Resident Evil 4, but I certainly remember the game! For those who look back on the game's tunes fondly, today's announcement is for you.

Capcom and Laced Records are teaming up for a Resident Evil 4 vinyl soundtrack release, which comes in both standard and limited edition. The best part is that both versions are priced the same, but bad part is that they're $80. Check out full details on the limited edition below.

Product Information:

4x LP vinyl available with Limited Edition ‘muddy gold’ discs
Features the score from the 2005 Nintendo GameCube™ title

Laced Records and Capcom team up once again to bring fans Resident Evil™ soundtracks on audiophile-quality vinyl. Pre-orders are now open for the Resident Evil™ 4 soundtrack on four LPs, featuring remastered audio from the 2005 Nintendo GameCube™ title, and brand new vinyl sleeve artwork by Boris Moncel.

Resident Evil 4 fundamentally changed the survival horror series by injecting action gameplay moving to a more action-packed over-the-shoulder camera. The gaming world continues to celebrate it as one of the most tightly designed and inventive video games ever made — a true classic that inspired many other games across several genres. For the music score, composers Shusaku Uchiyama and Misao Senbongi ratcheted up the tension with layers of unsettling electronic sounds and percussion loops; and also created fan favourite tracks “Serenity” and “Save Theme” suffused with anxious, atmospheric synths.

Mortal Kombat 11 is the first third party game in fourteen years to take the #1 software spot on Nintendo hardware

Hasn't happened since the GameCube days

Mortal Kombat 11 was the best-selling game on the Switch in the United States for April 2019. Seeing a third party title top the Switch list was pretty damn fantastic! Hell, seeing any third party title top the software list for Nintendo hardware is something that rarely happens. As a matter of fact, its been 14 years since it last happened!

NPD's Mat Piscatella revealed that the last time a third party title took the #1 software spot for Nintendo hardware was back in Feb. 2005, which is when Resident Evil 4 took that honor on the GameCube.

Play Resident Evil 4 on Switch with a GameCube controller

The Cube lives on

You might not be able to get the motion control experience that was on Wii, but you can go back to the original way the game was played! If you've got a GameCube controller and an adapter for Switch, you can plug that in and pretend you're playing back in the GameCube days!

Resident Evil 4 on Switch doesn't include motion controls

What a bummer

Well, I think we have some insight into just how much Capcom cares about the Switch port of Resident Evil 4. This version of the game is a straight port of the other HD re-releases, which means it doesn't include motion controls. Many were hoping some of the features from the Wii version of Resident Evil 4 would be included, but sadly, that's not the case.

Did You Know Gaming - Resident Evil 4

In this video, Did You Know Gaming takes a look at some facts, secrets and Easter eggs surrounding Capcom's RE4 for the GameCube, PlayStation 2 (PS2) and... everything else.

Fan game explores the dating side of Resident Evil with "Resident Evil 4: Otome Edition"

2004. It was the year when millions of players assumed the role of rookie cop-turned-secret agent Leon S. Kennedy as he traveled to rural Spain in pursuit of Ashley Graham, the president's missing daughter. A watershed moment in gaming, Resident Evil 4 was a reinvention of both its series and its genre - not to mention one hell of a party.

More importantly, Leon had amazing hair. Oh, and he flipped over lasers. For many, he entered the hallowed halls of video game heartthrobs in the same way he crashed through two-story windows: suddenly and with swag.

But we all know Leon's story. What about Ashley's? For the players of Resident Evil 4, she is, at best, an objective; at worst, a liability. A human cog in a well-oiled gameplay machine. But what if she was more than that? What if she was an interesting person, thrust into a crazy world with crazier men who run the gamut from hottie to hellspawn? How would she narrate this nightmare and who would she actually fall for?

Wonder no more. This is her story. This is Resident Evil 4: Otome Edition.

Relive the events of Resident Evil 4, faithfully recreated from Ashley's perspective - and with exactly as much absurdity as that entails!
Kindle your relationship with a host of eligible bachelors, including the stoic Leon, the mysterious Luis, the evasive Merchant, or perhaps even the conniving Lord Saddler!*
Discover what happened to Ashley in the scenes you never saw, such as her initial kidnapping.
Make fake decisions that reveal the illusory nature of choice!
Demo Length: 30-45 minutes (based on reading speed)
Gameplay Style: Kinetic Visual Novel

Now this is one hell of an idea for a parody game. I think I might have to check this one out. I mean, you can date the merchant! Check out the fan game here.
