Laced Records, in partnership with Capcom, has announced the limited edition Mega Man 1-11: The Collection vinyl set.
The collection consists of 152 tracks pressed onto six ‘Mega Man blue’ 180g vinyl LPs, packaged in deluxe spined inner sleeves, and housed in a luxury ridged board slip case. Music includes the full soundtracks to Mega Man, Mega Man 2 and Mega Man 3, as well as a large selection of fan favourites from Mega Man 4 through to Mega Man 11. All of it is taken straight from the Mega Man Classic game line, and between the music and the gorgeous sleeve artwork by illustrator ultimatemaverickx, this is a collection fans won’t want to miss.
Across 32 years and tons of games, the Mega Man (aka Rockman in Japan) series has sold over 35 million units. For the first time, you can hear the rock-inspired tunes on wax, with tracks drawn from across the entire franchise’s history. Relive the essential Famicom/NES chiptune scores in full, as we present the entire tracklist from Manami Matsumae’s Mega Man OST, Takashi Tateishi’s legendary music for Mega Man 2, and Yasuaki Fujita and Harumi Fujita’s fan favourite Mega Man 3 OST.
The composer list also includes Minae Fujii (MM4), Mari Yamaguchi (MM5), Yuko Takehara (MM6, MM7), Makoto Tomozawa (MM7, MM10), Toshihiko Horiyama (MM7), Shusaku Uchiyama (MM8), Ryo Kawakami (MM9, MM10), Yu Shimoda (MM9), Ippo Yamada (MM9, MM10), Hiroki Isogai (MM9), Akari Kaida (MM10), Hiroki Isogai (MM10), and Marika Suzuki (MM11). The track list is freakishly huge, so we encourage you to read it for yourself.
