Mega Man X 1-8: The Collection Vinyl Soundtrack Boxset Announced


Last year, Laced Records released the Mega Man 1-11 Vinyl Soundtrack Boxset. And now, they're back with another vinyl boxset, this time for the Mega Man X Series. You can find all the details below!


Product Information:

– 210 remastered tracks from eight Mega Man X titles
– Limited Edition features eight yellow and purple LPs housed in deluxe box set
– Original artwork by illustrator ultimatemaverickx

CAPCOM and Laced Records continue their partnership to bring classic video game music to vinyl with Mega Man™ X 1-8: The Collection, a deluxe eight-disc box set featuring 210 tracks from the mainline titles in the Mega Man X series spanning 1993-2004. 
Launched on the Super NES® as the gaming world transitioned from 8-bit to 16-bit consoles, the Mega Man X series introduced more mobility to the action-platforming series, as well as new plotlines and characters including X, Zero, and Axl.
Composers include Setsuo Yamamoto (Mega Man X), Yuki “Sato” Iwai (Mega Man X & Mega Man X2), Yuko Takehara (Mega Man X), Makoto “Tomozou” Tomozawa (Mega Man X), Kinuyo Yamashita (Mega Man X3), Toshihiko Horiyama (Mega Man X4), Naoto Tanaka (Mega Man X5) and Akemi Kimura (Mega Man X6, Mega Man X7 & Mega Man X8); Yuko Komiyama, Shinya "Midnight" Okada and Seiko Kobuchi (Mega Man X7 & Mega Man X8 as ‘Capcom Sound Team’); Makoto Asai, Teruo Konishi, Shuichi Mizohata, Noriyuki Iwadare and Takuya Miyawaki (Mega Man X7 as ‘Valuewave’); and the music of Yasuaki “Bun Bun” Fujita and original Mega Man composer Manami Matsumae.
 
Every track has been remastered specifically for this release and will be pressed onto eight audiophile-quality, heavyweight 180g vinyl LPs. These come packaged in deluxe spined inner sleeves, housed in a luxury rigid board slip case. The box set features brand new original artwork by illustrator and Mega Man maven ultimatemaverickx.

The boxset is due in September 2020 for $145/130€/£115.00. (shipping not included) You can pre-order it here if you live in North America or here if you live in Europe.

  1. I have no use for Vinyl, but damn I may have to buy that just for the sweet artwork.

    2. I'm shocked that this article didn't link the artist's DeviantArt page; here it is:

      It's definitely worth a look, and I think you can even download some of the art.

  2. Both links for NA and Europe are the same. I can only see the price in £.

    1. Nope, it appears there's only the one link to order from, and it will charge you in £ nonetheless. Problem is, I am trying to pre-order right now but I get an error (card rejected) though the bank says the card is fine. Anyone getting the same error?

  3. I'd be okay if they ditched the entire X3 soundtrack for the Gyro Man theme.

    1. There's already a MM Classic box set, so Gyro man would have nothing to do here.

      Your obsessive love for Gyro Man is both the sign of a stupid troll and someone who is just plain disturbing.

  4. i really like this cover. seeing the navigators(layer & pallet especially as i love these 2.would be cool to see iris with them.:3),douglas(lifesaver 2 i guess.really odd these 2 disappeared really quickly when douglas was meant to be the x equivalent of auto who is used more comparatively.),signas and even dr. lights hologram/spirit with the maverick hunters is awesome alongside the other cover of sigma and all the reploid rival mid bosses under his control.(kinda would be a neat parallel if to go with dr. light it showed on sigma's side a vague silhouette of dr. wily in a puppetmaster pose.)

    it really looks like a cover for a new x game & would be sweet if we got a cover for x9 like that.
