The Streetfighter Lady: Invisibility and Gender Role - Play in Game Composition Hillegonda C Rietveld Andrew Lemon Sonic Research Group & Games Research Group London South Bank University email@example.com The dimension of music is too often an oversight in general game studies, while gender politics are not sufficiently addressed in the currently developing study of game music. In addition, although there are exceptions within academic research (cf. Collins 2016), female game composers are too often rendered invisible within popular and populist game archaeological practices. As an example of gender role-play within theme-based composition practices, the presentation addresses Yoko Shimomura's original 1991 soundtrack of arcade fighting game "Streetfighter II: The World Warrior" (SF2) .
