New Mega Man sound box features portable titles, numerous spinoffs

Capcom are preparing two box sets dedicated to the Mega Man series. Set for release on October 29, the Rockman Sound Box features the scores for Mega Man 1 to Mega Man 10 spread across ten discs; it is essentially a reprint of the Rockman Sound E Can released in 2012, but in different packaging.

Hardcore collectors will be far more interested in Rockman Sound Box 2, set for release on December 17. Another ten-disc behemoth, this album will feature the scores for handheld and other spinoffs for the main series, the majority of which have not been released before. The following will feature:

Disc 1
Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge (aka Rockman World) (Game Boy)
Mega Man II (aka Rockman World 2) (Game Boy)
Mega Man III (aka Rockman World 3) (Game Boy)

Disc 2
Mega Man IV (aka Rockman World 4) (Game Boy)
Mega Man V (aka Rockman World 5) (Game Boy)

Disc 3 & 4
Mega Man: The Wily Wars (aka Rockman Mega World) (Genesis)


Disc 5
Mega Man & Bass (aka Rockman & Forte) (SNES)
Mega Man & Bass (aka Rockman & Forte) (Game Boy Advance)

Disc 6
Mega Man & Bass: Challenger from the Future (aka Rockman & Forte: Challenger from the Future) (WonderSwan)
Mega Man Powered Up (aka Rockman Rockman) (PSP)

Disc 7
Mega Man: The Power Battle (aka Rockman: The Power Battle) (Arcade CPS-1)
Mega Man: Battle & Fighters (aka Rockman Battle & Fighters) (Neo Geo Pocket Colour)

Disc 8
Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters (aka Rockman 2: The Power Fighters) (Arcade CPS-2)

Disc 9
Mega Man: The Power Battle (aka Rockman: The Power Battle) (Arcade CPS-1)
Mega Man & Dr. Light’s MegaBoard: That’s Paradise (aka Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise) (NES)

Disc 10
Mega Man’s Soccer (aka Rockman Soccer) (SNES)
Mega Man: Battle & Chase (aka Rockman Battle & Chase) (PlayStation)

The album will also be published with special composer interviews and illustrations. The music has been specially recorded and mastered for this release. Retailing at 12960 JPY (approx. 120 USD), this set has a hefty pricetag, but features plenty of great scores never released before.
