In celebration of this year’s Capcom Winter Update and Prize Fighter event, Steve Aoki is proud to announce a triple knock-out collaboration, featuring an apparel drop “Dim Mak x Street Fighter,” a limited edition counter-cade in partnership with Arcade1Up, and an official remix of Ryu’s iconic theme song. The Dim Mak x Street Fighter apparel and counter-cade collaboration releases today, February 11th, 2021, and will be available at dimmakcollection.com and NTWRK.
Growing up, Steve Aoki would pop into the local pizzeria arcade every day after school with a pocket full of quarters to play Street Fighter. The rules were simple – play until you lose – and that understanding brought together friends and strangers alike. Kids from all ages and backgrounds would gather in front of the single Street Fighter arcade machine, bonding over combination moves and cheering one another on for the ultimate prize: bragging rights! Fast forward to today, Street Fighter remains one of the most beloved games worldwide, bringing fans together to challenge one another on bigger, more competitive stages.
Working closely with Capcom’s creative team, DJ and fashion designer Steve Aoki reinterprets iconic Street Fighter artwork through the aesthetic vibes of his streetwear fashion label, Dim Mak. The Dim Mak x Street Fighter apparel drop, retailing for $38-$75, showcases twelve styles ranging from t-shirts, long sleeves tees, and hoodies, complete with bold graphics and colorways inspired by the arcade classic.
Accompanying the apparel drop is the Street Fighter 2 Player Counter-Cade – a limited-edition, 4-in-1 arcade system made in partnership with Arcade1Up. With only 30 units available, the exclusive counter-cade features collaborative artwork and designs including side art by Steve Aoki and a Dim Mak-inspired marquee. As the first ever 2 player counter-cade to be released by Arcade1Up, the Street Fighter 2 Player Counter-Cade is equipped with 4 Capcom games – Street Fighter™ II: World Warriors, Street Fighter™ II: Champion Edition, Super Street Fighter™ II: Turbo, Final Fight®. Each counter-cade is personally signed by Steve Aoki, and will be available for $199.
“I am so excited to be combining my style and the classic 16-bit aesthetic. I can’t wait for you guys to see it, it’s a Hadouken Banger!” – Steve Aoki
In addition to the Dim Mak x Street Fighter apparel and Counter-Cade drop, Steve Aoki celebrates the 30th anniversary of Street Fighter II with a festive remix of Capcom Sound Team’s iconic “Ryu’s Theme.” Aoki honors Ryu’s legacy with an uptempo epic, inspired by his childhood spent Street Fighting at the local pizzeria arcade. Aoki’s “Ryu’s Theme (The Moe’s Pizzeria Steve Aoki Remix)” comes out through Dim Mak Records on February 19th, 2021 and is available to pre-save now: https://ffm.to/ryustheme.
The Dim Mak x Street Fighter apparel and counter-cade collaboration releases today, February 11th, 2021 at 9AM PST, and will be available at dimmakcollection.com and NTWRK.
