Tekken 5 & Tekken 6 Vinyl Gets a Release Date
Laced Records plans a 2022 release of coveted Tekken Soundtracks
LACED RECORDS x TEKKEN Strikes Again….
Laced Records (in collaboration with Bandai Namco) is scheduled to release the iconic Tekken 5 (2004) and Tekken 6’s (2007) soundtracks on wax in March 2022.
Tekken 5 and Tekken 6 both continued to innovate 3D fighting technology, and Tekken 5 is particularly known as a classic amongst the fighting game community.
As with previous installments of the Laced x Tekken vinyl releases, Esports Legend and Tekken mastermind Ryan Joseph Hart curate the tracklist for both T5 and T6, respectively.
It’s really awesome that Ryan Hart is continuing the legacy of Tekken through gameplay as well as art and music.
