SNK and Brave Wave Productions are proud to reveal their fourth collaboration, Generation Series 010: Samurai Shodown for both CD and vinyl. Known as Samurai Spirits in Japan and originally released for NEOGEO in 1993, Samurai Shodown is one of SNK’s most classic and timeless 2D fighting games, featuring fast-paced gameplay, beautiful graphics and catchy music.

The soundtrack, composed by Norio Tate, achieves the difficult task of producing traditional Japanese sound comprised of instruments such as the shamisen and shachihata while maintaining a distinct NEOGEO vibe. The result is a beloved soundtrack that is simultaneous timeless, yet historical.

There are two variations of the soundtrack: an AES version and a NEOGEO CD arranged version. Samurai Shodown The Definitive Soundtrack will include both versions, featuring the entirety of the original soundtracks remastered and restored to the highest possible quality, in collaboration and consultation with SNK.

The CD and vinyl editions will feature a booklet containing artwork from the SNK archives, in addition to in-depth liner notes written by some of the original creators of the game, including series creator Yasushi Adachi, as well as Tate. In addition, the booklet will feature an in-depth essay by Greg Kasavin of Supergiant Games on the impact of Samurai Shodown on video game culture and history.

As Brave Wave’s first 3-LP vinyl set, Samurai Shodown The Definitive Soundtrack will come in a box set featuring three LP sleeves decorated with artwork from the game, with the box set featuring the original iconic Japanese cover drawn by famed illustrator Shinkiro.


SNK et Brave Wave Productions sont fiers de dévoiler leur quatrième collaboration, Generation Series 010: Samurai Shodown pour CD et vinyle. Connu sous le nom de Samurai Spirits au Japon et sorti à l'origine pour NEOGEO en 1993, Samurai Shodown est l'un des jeux de combat 2D les plus classiques et intemporels de SNK, avec un gameplay rapide, de beaux graphismes et une musique entraînante.

La bande sonore, composée par Norio Tate, accomplit la tâche difficile de produire un son japonais traditionnel composé d'instruments tels que le shamisen et le shachihata tout en conservant une ambiance NEOGEO distincte. Le résultat est une bande-son bien-aimée à la fois intemporelle et historique.

Il existe deux variantes de la bande originale: une version AES et une version NEOGEO sur CD. Samurai Shodown The Definitive Soundtrack comprendra les deux versions, reprenant l'intégralité des bandes sonores originales remasterisées et restaurées à la plus haute qualité possible, en collaboration et en consultation avec SNK.

Les éditions de CD et de vinyle comporteront un livret contenant des illustrations des archives SNK, en plus de notes de fond détaillées écrites par certains des créateurs originaux du jeu, y compris le créateur de la série Yasushi Adachi, ainsi que Tate. De plus, le livret contiendra un essai approfondi de Greg Kasavin de Supergiant Games sur l'impact de Samurai Shodown sur la culture et l'histoire du jeu vidéo.
