Austin, Texas-based publisher Mondo is shipping the vinyl release of the Metal Gear NES soundtrack, composed by the Konami Kukeiha Club sound team in 1998.

A departure from the MSX2 edition, the 8-bit console port for the military stealth game was developed without the involvement of series designer Hideo Kojima. Solid Snake of the high-tech special forces unit Foxhound is tasked with infiltrating a fortified nationstate named Outer Heaven to destroy a mechanized bipedal weapon armed with nuclear weaponry, dubbed "Metal Gear."

A port of Metal Gear for Windows launched this week through, as part of the distributor's showcase of classic Konami titles. From the Mondo product page:
This premiere physical release of the soundtrack is cut at 45RPM, and features all new original artwork by Paul Mann, this limited edition release is pressed on heavyweight split colored vinyl, and strictly limited to 1,000 copies.
