Music publisher Data Discs announced that it has released the remastered soundtracks for the Streets of Rage series via Bandcamp. Previously, the company released the remastered soundtrack of the trilogy via physical records.
Each of the soundtracks will cost £6.00 to purchase, which translates to around $7.50 USD. The soundtracks for Streets of Rage and 2 are credited solely to Yuzo Koshiro on Data Discs’ site, while 3 is credited to both Koshiro and Motohiro Kawashima (Kawashima also composed some tracks on 2). Both artists are returning for the upcoming Streets of Rage 4, alongside Yoko Shimomura, Hideki Naganuma, and Keiji Yamagishi.
According to Data Discs, the audio for the remastered soundtrack was sourced from the original NEC PC-88 files. It was then recorded and provided by Yuzo Koshiro, in combination with a 32bit/96kHz capture from a Mega Drive console.
You can find Data Discs’ new Bandcamp digital soundtrack store here. (It currently only contains the Streets of Rage series soundtracks.) Meanwhile, the official store also has the soundtracks still available via record format, with the first game’s soundtrack now back in stock.
The Streets of Rage series released on the Sega Genesis. The upcoming fourth game will come to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in Spring 2020.
