Some different takes that still suit the mood of the Mayor of Metro City.

Daniel Lindholm has contributed some of the most enjoyable new music in the Street Fighter series with his compositions for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, including Zeku’s theme, Menat’s theme, and more. Cody’s new theme is also part of Lindholm’s work, and if you want¬†some insight into how it developed, check out these earlier drafts:

The use of Cody’s theme from Super Street Fighter IV as a basis to build on was clearly in the plan from the start, but it’s certainly interesting to hear how different these tunes are from the end result — and yet, pieces of the (slightly more upbeat) final theme music are still in there.
