“Rockcan” is your first piece of Mega Man 25th Anniversary merch


It’s Mega Man’s 25th anniversary in December, and although Capcom is mostly focusing on the earlier Street Fighter series anniversary, they’re not leaving their most prolific character in the dark.

The first piece of merchandise for the anniversary to be revealed is the Rockcan, a 10 disc soundtrack bringing together the original tracks from Rockman/Mega Man 1 through 10, as well as the arranged tracks from the PlayStation Rockman Complete Works re-releases in the last 90s. It’s packaged together with a small booklet in a case that’s shaped like an energy tank.

The Rockcan will be out September 19 and will set you back 14,700 yen (~$AU184). You can order it here.

10 CD Dragon Quest soundtrack set coming


Dragon Quest fans are being spoiled for choice with new merchandise for the series upcoming 25th anniversary. Earlier today King Records revealed the Symphonic Suite Dragon Quest Scene-Separated I~IX CD-BOX, a 10 CD set containing music from every mainline Dragon Quest game released to date.

The set is a little unconventional. Rather than being grouped by game, the music on each CD is grouped by song type, so you’ll have one CD for all of the castle themes for the series, one for all of the battle themes, and so on.

The set is due out next year, and will set you back 15,750 yen.

Mega Man arrange soundtrack on the way

With the recent cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3, many fans feel like Capcom has abandoned the once iconic character. However, several members of the Capcom Sound Team recently banded together to start a band called “We Are ROCK-MEN” with the intention of creating a Mega Man arrange album.

The video posted above contains the first track that the group has released. It is from the Darkman level of Mega Man 5.

The group also revealed that the soundtrack will contain at least fifteen tracks from the Mega Man and Mega Man X series, and will be available for purchase from September 21st for the princely sum of 2,100 yen.

You know you want this 20th Anniversary Seiken Densetsu music collection


Seiken Densetsu, or the Mana series as we know it, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The first game in the series was released as Final Fantasy Adventure in America and as Mystic Quest in Europe, just to make the name confusion all the more fun.

In celebration of the milestone, Square-Enix is releasing this absolutely massive soundtrack box. Inside are twenty CDs of music from each game in the series, from Final Fantasy Adventure through to Heroes of Mana. It’ll set you back 21,000 yen.

If that’s not enough Mana series music for you, the album SQ Chips will also be released in September. This album will feature 8 bit arrangements of Square’s classics. A recently released preview album revealed that two of the tracks come from Secret of Mana.

On top of that, there is also the Re:Birth / Seiken Densetsu Kenji Ito Arrange Album, due to be released in October. It’s a tribute to the soundtrack of the first game in the series, Final Fantasy Adventure.
