Laced Records of London has announced the publication of the limited edition Street Fighter Alpha 3 deluxe triple vinyl soundtrack. The three-disc set is also available for preorder at Light in the Attic in Seattle and Black Screen Records in Cologne.

Entitled Street Fighter Zero 3 in Japan, the CP System II arcade game takes place prior to the events of Street Fighter II. M. Bison of the criminal syndicate Shadaloo, aided by Elite Guards Juli and Juni, threatens to harness a doomsday weapon dubbed the Psycho Drive. Continuing the sub-series' tradition of incorporating characters from Capcom brawler Final Fight, Cody makes his franchise debut as an escaped convict.

The audiophile-quality 180-gram disc set features 44 remastered tracks from the 1998 fighting game, with mastering for vinyl by Joe Caithness. Original illustrations for the cover are by comic book artist Andie Tong. Utilizing the arcade QSound system, music for the game is composed by Takayuki Iwai, Yuki Iwai, Isao Abe (aka Oyaji), Hideki Okugawa and Tetsuya Shibata.

Street Fighter Alpha 3 is included in Street Fighter: 30th Anniversary Collection, available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and through Steam. The digital soundtrack is streaming on Spotify.
