To celebrate the launch of Street Fighter IV, the latest instalment in one of the most successful fighting game series of all time, video games giant Capcom has made available for the first time the original, fully-mastered vocal, FX and music samples taken from the cult classic Street Fighter II, enabling DJs and producers access to cut, scratch, remix and re-edit these classic parts to their heart’s content.
Why Street Fighter II? Released in 1991 Street Fighter II became the must-have fighting game for the SNES, literally smashing all competition in its path with its two-player and arcade modes, making this one of the most successful games of all time. And it’s back for 2009 in a brand new manifestation, available on PS3 & Xbox 360.
Capcom team up with leading MP3 download portal Trackitdown.net to bring you this free exclusive remix competition. On Jan 19th the competition will go live offering DJs and producers across the globe access to download a full Street Fighter II sample pack featuring classic vocals such as Hadoken, Sonic Boom, Tiger Uppercut alongside hundreds of FX noises and music in lossless .wav format giving up coming and established producers the opportunity to remix these classic parts in whatever way they feel!
