Strider Hiryu Sound Chronicle (ストライダー飛竜 Sound Chronicle -サウンド クロニクル-) is a soundtrack compilation of the Strider series, a 3-CD set compiling the entire soundtrack from the Arcade Strider, Strider 2 and Strider (2014). It was released at the same time as the 2014 game in February, as part of the Strider Hiryu Special-A Class Limited Edition package, alongside other goods.

It comes with an 8-page booklet with commentary and a brief interview with the 2014 Strider's producer, Andrew Szymanski.


Disc 1Edit

Disc 1 includes the entire soundtrack from the original Arcade Strider. It's a brand-new compilation, taken from the fixed sound board of an Arcade revision known as the "Resale Version" (再販版). It includes a few tracks that had never been part of previous soundtracks, such as Grandmaster Meio's speech from the final stage and an unused extra Amazon introduction fanfare. It also corrects the inverted stage numbering that called the Balrog stage medley "Stage 4" and the Amazon stage medley "Stage 3".

The disc also includes an extra bonus track with themes from the game's Sharp X68000 port that were touched-up from the originals.

Disc 2Edit

Disc 2 contains the entire soundtrack of Strider 2. It's mostly a reprint of Disc 1 from the Strider Hiryu 2 Original Soundtrack, albeit apparently missing track #28, the Voice Collection, for unknown reasons.

For the track listing, check the page for the original soundtrack release.
