A little while back, we caught wind of retail listings for a Rockman 25th Anniversary Rock Arrange Soundtrack, and a Rockman 25th Anniversary Techno Arrange Soundtrack. Today we have some tiny new details on both.
First off, both albums are seeing a delay. They're now anticipated to release on October 10th instead of August 29. Not too bad of a delay, but a delay nonetheless.
The Rock Arrange album will include the the handiwork of Kenji Ito (Mana, SaGa), Kazuki Ohta (FFXII, Valkyria Chronicles 3), Mitsuhiro Kandea (Odin Sphere, Tekken 6), Yoshimi Kudo (Tekken 6), Tetsuro Sato (Psyvariar), Hitoshi Sakimoto (Tactics Ogre, Breath of Fire V), Hiroshi Tanabe (The Prince of Tennis), Azusa Chiba (Let’s TAP), Yoshitaka Hirota (Chrono Trigger), and LivestRow. Meanwhile the Techno Arrange album has Masahiro Iwata (Mushihimesama), Mitsuhiro Kaneda, Yoshimi Kudo, Hitoshi Sakimoto, Denji Sano (Love Synthesizer!), Yuto Takei (Gran Turismo 5), Azusa Chiba, Takeshi Hama (Devil May Cry), Far East Recording and Shinji Hosoe (Mega Man Network Transmission).
TEAM Entertainment have yet to reveal the official track listing, but the covers for each album may hold a hint. You see, the jackets feature the sprites of a very specific set of Robot Masters. The Rock Arrange album has Heat Man, Bubble Man, Wood Man, Air Man, Crash Man, Metal Man and Elec Man, and the Techno Arrange album has Heat Man, Skull Man, Pharaoh Man, Hard Man, Quick Man, Snake Man and Flash Man. So yeah, LOTS of Rockman 2 Robot Masters. That would seem to imply the focus here is, you guessed it, Rockman 2.
All speculation, of course. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
