The internet is ablaze with buzz this week as news broke out that Data Discs will be releases new Shenmue & Streets of Rage vinyl LP albums. The audio has been remastered for these new albums and they go on sale on May 30th, 2015 when the company’s website opens for business.

These two albums will be the companies’ initial offerings, and the company states on their Facebook page that they have obtained the rights to “develop their back catalogue on vinyl.” That means even more releases are possibly on the way!

Both of the albums will have multiple editions available. You can read their notes on each release below!
