Altered Beast saw its originally release in the arcades in 1988. However once it was ported over to SEGA’s new Mega Drive console, it entered countless homes as a pack-in game and remains memorable for many people who experienced this with their brand new Mega Drive console.
The gameplay for Altered Beast may have become dated; but not so for its iconic soundtrack. Composed by Tohru “Master” Nakabayashi, the music of Altered Beast moves between intense battle themes and cavernous dirges; the perfect backdrop to traversing the netherworld, punching pigs and powering up.
Sourced from a Japanese Mega Drive and carefully mastered for vinyl, Altered Beast is presented as a 45RPM cut LP in a 400g matt varnished sleeve and printed inner sleeve, both of which feature hand-painted artwork from the SEGA archives. Also included is a foldout poster of the original painting used for the game’s box art.
