Japanese record label Brave Wave is introducing the Generation Series, a series of vinyl and CD reissues of classic video game soundtracks. And the game soundtrack that’s earned the privilege of being Generation Series release #1 is none other than the Street Fighter II Official Arcade Soundtrack, coming soon to vinyl and CD.
Approved by the game’s original composer Yoko Shimomura, the Street Fighter II Official Arcade Soundtrack is a deluxe double album release with brightly colored translucent vinyl and liner notes by Shimomura. The recordings themselves were “extracted directly from the original arcade boards,” so listening will be just like playing the game as far as your ears are concerned (presumably minus sound effects).
The Brave Wave Generation Series #1 Street Fighter II Official Arcade Soundtrack is scheduled for release sometime later this year, but specific details are still to come. For more info, as well as to sign up for future updates, head over to the Generation Series site right here.
