We’re delighted to announce the Virtua Fighter Original Video Game Soundtrack on vinyl for the very first time!

 Virtua Fighter, the inaugural installment in the renowned fighting game franchise, is credited with pioneering 3D fighting games. It achieved tremendous success in Japan and stands among the top-grossing arcade games of all time. Its release for the SEGA Saturn console was critical to its triumph in the Japanese market.

The latest remastered 2XLP release showcases two distinct VIRTUA FIGHTER soundtracks, featuring discs for both the arcade and SEGA Saturn versions. The gatefold packaging is adorned with vivid hues and consists of six pages of liner notes, which include hi-res renders and a fresh interview with the mastermind behind the franchise, Yu Suzuki.

Virtua Fighter 2xLP

Ready? The year is 1993, and SEGA AM2, the team known for releasing Virtua Racing the year prior, is about to unleash three-dimensional fury upon your local arcade. Virtua Fighter, the world's first fighting game presented entirely in 3D, was about to revolutionize arcades worldwide.

The game, directed by AM2 founder and series creator Yu Suzuki, featured eight iconic characters, never-before-seen 3D perspectives, and groundbreaking arcade action. The game was soon ported to the Sega Saturn, and its initial success launched a franchise now decades in the making.

Nearly 30 years later, the iconic soundtrack to that first game, composed by Takayuki Nakamura and Takenobu Mitsuyoshi, is now available on vinyl.
Nakamura-san first composed the music for the Model 1 arcade release, and Mitsuyoshi-san later arranged and diversified the music for the Sega Saturn release.

Experience the game's iconic soundtrack—with character themes and iconic sound effects—across two LPs, with large format artwork and newly remastered sound. The vinyl is a gorgeous translucent blue colour and it also comes with bonus sound effects tracks.

Comes with a 6 page liner notes with hi-res renders. Includes a new interview with series creator Yu Suzuki and is officially licensed by ©SEGA
