Welcome to the Generation Series.

The Generation Series is a new label that stands for definitive editions of legendary video game soundtracks. Some of them previously unreleased, incomplete, out of print, hard to find, or not preserved in the best possible quality. For the first time ever, we are releasing your favorite soundtracks in comprehensive collector's editions: restored, remastered, often in unprecedented quality.

We are working with researchers, consultants and world class engineers to bring you the best possible versions of these soundtracks. We are also working closely with developers, license holders and original sound teams. All of our work will be overseen and approved by the respective composers or the person in charge of the sound team (wherever possible). On top of that, our physical releases will contain extras like interviews, art booklets and more.

Generation Series #001

Brave Wave is partnering with the visionary team at Capcom for the first Generation Series release this year, Street Fighter II The Definitive Soundtrack.

The soundtrack release includes new remasters of both CPS-1 and CPS-2 versions of the arcade game, extracted directly from the arcade boards and approved by original composer Yoko Shimomura.

Fans of physical media will be treated with a 3-disc album that features liner notes by Yoko Shimomura and Polygon.com writer Matt Leone. Additionally, and for the first time in the series history, we will present with Capcom a limited edition 4 LP box set, carefully and especially remastered in colored vinyl, with art prints sourced from the Capcom archive.
