- Wayô Records brings the classic soundtrack to cassette.
- This limited release contains composer-commentary and a brand new “megamix.”
- CD copies are also available, with digital downloads planned for a later date.
If you were hoping to crank your nostalgia level up to Maximum Hipster, Wayô Records has got you covered with a limited cassette release of Streets of Rage II‘s soundtrack, composed by Yuzo Koshiro. For those living in the 21st Century, digital downloads will be available at a later date. CD copies are also available, though those things we’re still a few years out from those being en vogue.
This new release is the Perfect Soundtrack version, featuring commentary from Koshiro and a 17-minute long “megamix.”
Wayô Records released the following statement celebrating the release:
“We are excited to work again with composer Yuzo Koshiro to release the Streets of Rage II Perfect Soundtrack featuring an exclusive brand new mix by Shinji Hosoe,” comments Wayô Records producer Jonathan Khersis. “For the very first time, we will also release a tape edition of both soundtracks. This is undoubtedly the ultimate retro format as many of us likely have childhood memories of recording our favorite game music on cassette tapes given how hard game soundtracks were to come by. This game series is a perfect fit for this format and we hope it inspires as much nostalgia in fans as it does in us.”Wayô Records
