Following their recent Mega Man X Vinyl Set, Laced Records are bringing music from Street Fighter III to vinyl. This 4 LP “Deluxe” vinyl set will feature 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. This $80 release will be available in Black and a limited “Hadouken” blue and white variant.

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).

In addition to this release, Laced Records have announced that they will be releasing separate vinyl soundtracks for the Street Fighter Alpha games in the coming months.Street Fighter III | Vinyl set
