Sweet-Looking Battletoads Vinyl, 30th Anniversary Rare Print Announced

Microsoft announces new collector's items at Comic-Con.


Rare is not only celebrating its 30th anniversary this year with an achievement-stuffed Xbox One collection called Rare Replay, but also a special print and even a limited-edition Battletoads vinyl soundtrack.

Both were announced this week at San Diego Comic-Con. The 18" x 24" print features all 30 games from the upcoming Rare Replay collection, including Banjo-Kazooie, Battletoads, and Perfect Dark. It was created in partnership with iam8bit.

As for the Battletoads vinyl, the awesome-looking cover illustration was designed by Brooklyn-based artist Nick Gazin, who previously worked with hip-hop group Run the Jewels. The 180-gram vinyl features a "Dark Queen" gatefold variant and a "Sound Chip" jacket exclusive to this version.

The music, of course, was composed by David Wise.

The Rare print and Battletoads vinyl are sure to become collector's items, as the print is limited to just 400 units, while only 300 copies of the soundtrack are being produced. Both will be available to buy only at the Xbox Lounge at Comic-Con this week, so you'll have to visit San Diego to get one.

Comic-Con runs through Sunday. To stay in the loop with all the big news, be sure to visit GameSpot's dedicated Comic-Con hub.
