In collaboration with our pals at Materia Collective & composer/arranger Braxton Burks, iam8bit is proud to present the Johto Legends! 2xLP vinyl – a one-hour orchestral arrangement album featuring the timeless music of Pokémon Gold and Silver!

This pairing explores a young Pokémon Trainer’s epic journey across the scenic Johto region – meeting Pokémon friends, going head-to-head with the nefarious Team Rocket, and encountering the legendary guardians of Johto – all told through a stunning musical narrative.

Seven incredibly talented musicians with performance pedigrees including Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions and The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses — as well as game scores such as Destiny, Dragon Age, Tomb Raider and Minecraft — will bring this score to life.

Accentuating the journey is an epic package design by artist Ryan Brinkerhoff, chock-full of premium trappings like: Premium Foil-Stamped Jacket; Gold/Silver Foil Inner Sleeves; Half-and-Half Color Pokeball Vinyl Discs; and an Epic Gatefold Illustration to be revealed at a later date. The satisfaction of seeing these discs spin on a turntable is hard to pass up.

Below is a preview of tracks that will be re-recorded for Johto Legends! Please note that these are synthesized temp tracks and they will be re-recorded with LIVE orchestral instruments in a studio environment for the final record set.
