Brave Wave brings us the Street Fighter II The Definitive Soundtrack
Street Fighter music fans, rejoice! Street Fighter II The Definitive Soundtrack is now available, brought to you by Brave Wave Productions!
This collection features all of the music from Street Fighter II (+ some sound effects !) and it is available digitally and in a 3-Disc CD set. The crazy part is it's also available on Vinyl, but as of writing this blog post, all Vinyl sets are already sold out!
Now I know what you're all thinking "does this set include Guile's theme?" and the answer is an ominous " Yes, yes! " Being the definitive release of this soundtrack, the set includes all the music from the both CPS-1 and CPS-2 boards. As a matter of fact, you can listen to a couple of tracks from each of them, including--you guessed it--Guile's theme:
Guile's Theme (CPS-1)
Guile's Theme (CPS-2)
If you want to read a little more about the creation process of this definitive soundtrack and the people involved, Brave Wave has an insightful page just for you. Here's a quote that caught my eye:
" [...] our release of Street Fighter II The Definitive Soundtrack has been restored and remastered with great attention to detail, under supervision and with final approval from original composer Yoko Shimomura. "
Again, you can pick this up right now on their store page , and even listen to a couple more sample tracks while you wait for your download to finish or order to ship (CD sets ship on December 12). Enjoy!

Street Fighter V Character Theme Previews
One of the key components of what makes a game or its characters memorable is its music. As we all know, the character themes established throughout the various Street Fighter titles have been regarded as classics by Street Fighter fans and music fans alike. Today Id like to give you all a preview of some of the character themes that we are working on for Street Fighter V.
Many of these songs are extremely iconic and weve done our best to remix them and update them for a new generation to enjoy. Without further ado, here they are!
- The guitars and violins really bring out the passion in this tune.
- The lighter tune goes with Birdies more goofy personality this time around.
- A modern take on a classic theme.
- I feel like training in some misty mountains after hearing this.
- This version sounds like it could be played at the party in Karins stage.
- I can totally see Mika coming down to the ring with this song playing.
- A grand theme for a grand warrior! Easily my favorite.
- This song is as fast and fun as Rashid is!
What did you all think? Which ones your favorite? Look forward to hearing more songs from the game as we get close to the Feb 16 release date!
