Capcom has unearthed four previously unreleased tracks from the original Mega Man X. The four tunes were included as a bonus track on the 12th disc of the newly released Rockman X Sound Box collection. Because the set isn't particularly cheap, we've gone ahead and gutted 'em for you.
The first piece is, assumingly, an unused stage select theme. This is followed by alternate/early compositions of existing themes: Chill Penguin stage (00:48), Maverick encounter (2:21), and Sigma stage 3 (3:00).
So maybe not as earth shattering as we originally hoped. Still, it's neat Capcom held onto these pieces for so long. What do you make of the unused stage select? A little too upbeat for my tastes.
Thanks to SuperMega233 for the upload!
