Mega Man 25th Anniversary

If you read my last post about the 25th anniversary of Kirby then you know my love for anniversary collections. Now there's going to be a Mega Man 25th anniversary collection, but for now (hoping for more announcements) it's going to be a collection of the soundtracks to Mega Man one through ten.

Quoted from The Mega Man Network: "The “Rockcan” comes in a steel E-Tank tin, and includes a full color booklet. There will be 10 discs and they cover music from the Mega Man games 1 through 10. Rockman 1-6 has both the Famicom and Playstation tracks. Furthermore, according to Ucchy-san, the music is being remastered using the original sound sources. Curiously, Rockman 9 and 10 cite the Xbox Live Arcade versions as their sound source. And also a bummer, but to be expected, Rockman 8's source is the PS edition, so don’t look forward to Cut and Wood’s bonus themes."

If you couldn't figure it out, Rockman = Mega Man. It's just what Mega Man is called in Japan. Look at that casing though. It's beautiful! Plus the music from Mega Man is some of the best video game music of all time. So what's the price? Around $180! OUCH! The case is so beautiful though that it's a must-have for any hardcore Mega Man fan. I'm going to pass, but there is a possibility I won't have a choice since it hasn't been announced for an American release. With Capcom's history with not releasing things in America, there's a chance it's not coming here at all.... I'm still waiting for the Miles Edgeworth sequel.

If you're from Japan though, look forward to the release date, which is September 19th.
