Street Fighter Series :: Discography
Due to the sheer number of Final Fantasy albums, we have separated their albums by mini-series on this page. We provide descriptions of each mini-series for guidance since Street Fighter's discography is somewhat confusing.

Created in 1991, Street Fighter II: The World Warrior was a hugely popular Arcade 'versus fighting' game from Capcom. The game's music, scored by Yoko Shimomura and Isao Abe, was noted for its character themes that since appeared in numerous soundtracks and arranged albums related to the franchise.

1994's Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers was an enhanced version of Street Fighter II. The music from the initial game was carried over, but Isao Abe and Syun Nishigaki created some new compositions, notably for the four new characters. They have featured in various albums.
