Released back in August 2007, ZXA Tunes was the physical release of Rockman ZX Advent remastered soundtrack. The album came on two CDs and even featured the 8-bit soundtrack from "Rockman a (antique)" mini-game as a bonus. Despite Inti Creates' tradition of including drama tracks with their Rockman soundtracks, the second album in the ZX series doesn't – instead, it comes with four vocal tracks.

Released back in October, 2006, ZX Tunes is the physical release of the Rockman ZX remastered soundtrack divided into two discs, one for each hero of the game: an Aile disc and a Vent disc. The soundtrack also includes the game's image song "Innocence" sung by the Japanese lyricist and vocalist CAO (Kaori Nakamura). One of the peculiarities of this album is that it comes with eight different CD covers by artists that worked on the Rockman series from Hitoshi Ariga to Toru Nakayama, among other well known names.
You can see their respective covers after the break along with the fully translated booklet - which contains plenty of interesting information - courtesy once again to Sidier.

Mega Man series producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya has announced via video message that Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection has been delayed to February 25th, 2020 (originally slated for January 21st, 2020).
In the video message, Tsuchiya says he and his team are working hard to deliver the best game possible. He is deeply sorry for the inconvenience and appreciates your continued support of the Mega Man series.
Although we won't be playing the game as soon as we thought, this admittedly small delay can only bring about good things. More time means a better quality product. Look forward to it!

Publisher Spike Chunsoft will delist Mighty No.9 from the Japanese PlayStation Store tomorrow, November 15th. Users who already own the game will still be able to redownload it at any time after November 15th.
Spike Chunsoft did not disclose why the game will be removed from the Japanese storefront. However, it's worth noting that a couple of other Spike Chunsoft/Deep Silver published games are being delisted tomorrow as well. These include Homefront: The Revolution and Saints Row IV. Pending official word from Spike Chunsoft, it's presumed that the publishing deal with Deep Silver has expired. If that is the case, it is unlikely that Mighty No.9 will be pulled from other regions.
If something happens to change, well, we'll let you know.

Hot on the heel's of yesterdays' news that Mega Man 11 sold a million copies, Mega Man franchise producer Kazuhiro Tsuchiya took to Twitter to share updated sales figures for Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1&2 and Mega Man Legacy Collection 1&2.
"Mega Man 11 shipped 1 million units worldwide," declared Tsuchiya. "And ... MMX Legacy Collection 1&2 total reached 1.4M units, MM Legacy Collection 1&2 total shipment is 2M units. Thanks for your awesome support! May the Blue Bomber be with you."
As one can expect, support and words of congratulations from fans and Capcom staff poured in. The whole thread is worth a read. It'll make your blue bomber heartstrings sing!
Now, it is worth pointing out that, at the time of this writing, Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1+2 and Mega Man Legacy Collection 1+2 do not appear on Capcom's Platinum Titles despite moving 1.4 million units and 2 million units, respectively. Tsuchiya hasn't commented on it yet, but speculations suggests that the collections are being considered separate SKUs.
The X Legacy Collection was sold separately in some territories (as Rockman X Collection 1 and Rockman X Collection 2) and therefore the 1.4 million units is a *combination* of the two. It's a similar situation with Mega Man Legacy Collection 1+2. We know for a fact that, as of September 2019, Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 sold 1.1 million units. Legacy Collection 2, meanwhile, didn't come close but together with MMLC1, the cumulative figure is 2 million units.
Phew! Okay. That was a lot of numbers. tl;dr, Mega Man is doing very, very well and all of this bodes well for the future. Good job everyone!
Capcom Japan announced the final set list for the Rockman Live 2020 concerts and revealed the exclusive goods and guests that will be on hand at the concert venues. By the looks of things, most of the songs will be played in pairs so we can expect a lot of medleys. What's more, a new song composed for the Rockman Zero & ZX Double Hero Collection by the band "Captune"will be played, too. All the info after the break!

With a little over a month before we start celebrating Mega Man's 32nd anniversary, we just got the best early present possible. Capcom updated their Platinum Titles list (games that sold a million or more units) and, finally, Mega Man 11 has reached the one million units sold milestone! Mega Man 11 was released on October 2nd, 2018 and it took a little over a year to join the exclusive Platinum list.
Mega Man 11 joins other games in the franchise that have sold a million or more units: Mega Man 2, Mega Man Battle Network 4, Mega Man X1, Mega Man Legacy Collection and Mega Man 3. Sales of Mega Man 11 helped push the franchise to a total of 35 million units back in May 2019. Overall, the franchise has seen a growth of 2-3 million units between June 2018 and November 2019.
Back in February of this year, we reported that Mega Man 11 sold approximately 870,000 units and the Mega Man X Legacy Collection sold a total of 920,000 units since the later launched in July 2018. Surprisingly enough, it was Mega Man 11 who reached the one million units sold milestone first. We can only hope the Mega Man X Legacy Collection joins it soon!
