Download Street Fighter II samples, remix them, win Xbox 360

Street Fighter II: we still remember the special moves.
Street Fighter II: we still remember the special moves.

For men of a certain age, the mere mention of phrases such as 'Yoga Flame', 'Sonic Boom' and 'Spinning Bird Kick' is enough to make them go misty-eyed.

For the benefit of those who actually had a life in the early-to-mid 90s, we should say that these are all taken from Street Fighter II, the granddaddy of one-on-one fighting games.

In its youth, MusicRadar spent an obscene amount of time playing the aforementioned scrapper and, as of 20 February, Street Fighter IV will be on sale in the UK.

To celebrate, software developer Capcom and MP3 download portal are giving away all the fully-mastered samples from its predecessor-but-one and running a remix competition.


The Street Fighter II samples can be downloaded in a zip file, and are supplied in WAV format. The idea is that you use these as the basis for a remix, post an MP3 of it online then send a link to it to

The creators of the four remixes judged to be the best will each win an Xbox 360 and a copy of Street Fighter IV.

If you think you have what it takes to Tiger Uppercut the opposition into submission, go to the Street Fighter IV Remix Competition page now and download the samples.

Now, if you'll excuse us, we're going up to the loft to dig out our SNES…
