The PS4 and Vita versions of the game are also getting an exclusive remix of the soundtrack. It'll be playable in the game, and it's done in chiptunes style by the composer of Shovel Knight. If you don't want to play with either the original or remixed soundtrack, you can use your own MP3s as backing tracks to the levels.
