Data Discs is about to open up pre-orders for the Streets of Rage 2 Double LP Vinyl, which is likely to sell out on it’s first day.
It almost goes without saying, as Streets of Rage 2 is one of the most popular soundtracks ever to grace a Sega game and Data Discs releases have a history of selling out fast.
