London, 3rd September 2020 –

Capcom and Laced Records have teamed up to bring the music of the Street Fighter™ III and Street Fighter™ Alpha series to vinyl.

The Street Fighter™ III: The Collection four disc box set will include 72 tracks from Street Fighter III: New Generation, Street Fighter™ III 2nd Impact: Giant Attack, and Street Fighter™ III 3rd Strike: Fight For The Future.

Street Fighter III first hit arcades in 1997 with New Generation, retaining only Ryu and Ken while introducing an otherwise brand new cast of characters. The third and final iteration, 3rd Strike, is widely recognised as one of the greatest fighting games of all time, and generated perhaps the most indelible competitive moment in gaming, with Daigo’s comeback again Justin Wong aka “Evo Moment #37.”

Composers Hideki Okugawa and Yuki Iwai explored a range of high energy dance styles across the three titles, leaning most heavily on jazzy house, jungle and drum’n’bass — with some samba rhythms thrown in for good measure.

Tracks have been specially remastered for vinyl and will be pressed onto four audiophile-quality, heavyweight 180g ‘Hadouken blue and white’ discs. These will be housed in individual spined sleeves, contained within a rigid board outer slipcase.

Original sleeve art is by comic book artist Andie Tong (deemonproductions.com).

Additionally, all three games in the Street Fighter™ Alpha series will receive separate vinyl soundtrack releases in the coming months, starting with Street Fighter™ Alpha: Warriors’ Dreams.

The Street Fighter III: The Collection vinyl box set can be pre-ordered now via www.lacedrecords.com (www.lacedrecords.co outside of the USA) and will ship in November 2020.
Price: GBP £70 / USD $80
