This week, Xbox One owners will be treated to Rare Replay, a digital collection of 30 games produced by Nintendo’s former second party developer. While Wii U owners will, understandably, find themselves left out on that particular package, the game is getting some very neat merchandise that nostalgic Nintendo fans can also enjoy. That is, if they can get to them, first!

A trio of vinyl soundtracks for Banjo-Kazooie, BattleToads and Perfect Dark are on the way, courtesy of Microsoft and iam8bit. The soundtracks are presented on LP 180 gram vinyl records. Each release will be limited to 3000 copies and feature breathtaking art by some of iam8bit’s finest artists. Seriously, these are stunning!
