We were tasked to promote Capcom’s Street Fighter IV to the music, style and fashion communities. To achieve this we focused on the cult of Street Fighter II the classic Super Nintendo video game by looking at it’s impact on youth culture.
We created a multi-tiered campaign that included the production of an exclusive limited edition DJ ‘battle’ vinyl which was sold and promoted via the UK’s leading independent record stores and fashion outlets. We also create a viral video mash up by AV legends Hexstatic (above) and a remix competition giving away the original 8-bit games hosted by the UK’s leading online MP3 store for dance music Trackitdown.net. This not only achieved tens of thousands of hits and excellent PR coverage but also saw the samples used by several underground artists in their official releases.
As part of the the launch for Bionic Commando Rearmed Capcom asked us to create a bespoke marketing campaign to target fans outside of their core audience.
Looking at the heritage of the game as an 8-bit classic we approached three artists to remix the original theme, these artists were either fans of the game or known for using 8-bit sounds in their production. After a bit of research we chose Rusko, Surkin and Clipz. As part of the promotion each artist was asked to promote the tracks to their contacts, blog and feature via their social networks in order to spread the tracks virally online.
Bionic Commando - Surkin Remix

Further to this the Rusko and Clipz mix were picked up by Radio 1 DJs Annie Mac and Grooverider respectively enjoying several Radio 1 plays around release and a licensing request for Annie Mac’s compilation.
