Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number Being Released on… Vinyl?
Only ask your DJ to throw Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number on the turntable when you know there's a masked vigilante on the loose -- it's not like DJs actually spin vinyl nowadays anyway.
Joystiq reports that Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number is coming to vinyl. This information was actually leaked by Graeme Strutthers of Devolver Digital on Joystiq's podcast from Gamescom 2014. At first, Joystiq entertained the idea of literally putting a game on a vinyl record and how tossing around the idea of how impossible it would be to actually play. We know Hotline Miami has retro graphics, but that idea was just a little bit too far-fetched to consider.
Now, we have learned that Devolver may release part of the sequel's soundtrack on a vinyl and to have a download key for the game included with the record. This is great news for those of us who have murderous inclinations towards mafiosos and a collection of animal masks hanging in our rooms above our vinyl record players. Or for Hotline Miami fans who have taken the hipster route to listening to music and bought a $150+ record player when thrift stores sell used ones for $10 that work equally as well (you just wanted an iPod dock on yours).
"There are plans to release some of the music from Hotline Miami 2 on vinyl and that package would most likely include a download key for the game." a representative from Devolver told Joystiq. "We announced it kind of by accident but not really because it's not announced so it's not wrong but it's still not an official thing yet maybe."
Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number will launch later this year for PC, PlayStation 4 and PS Vita with cross-buy compatibility.
