Mega Man 2+3 and Mega Man X Soundtracks Get New Vinyl Release


It's December 17th in Japan. And that means we're celebrating the classic series' 34th anniversary and the X series' 28th anniversary. Laced Records are the first to join the celebration with the unveiling of two special vinyls: Mega Man 2 & 3 and Mega Man X.

Find all the details after the break!


The Mega Man 2 & Mega Man 3 Original Soundtrack will be available in a double vinyl featuring several brand new illustrations by fan-favorite artist ultimatemaverickx.

This deluxe double LP set features 49 tracks that have been remastered for vinyl, pressed onto heavyweight LPs.

The vinyl is due in August 2022 (estimated) for $35 or 38€. A limited edition featuring ‘Mega Buster Blue’ discs is exclusively available via Laced Records' online store.


The Mega Man X vinyl also features new art, remastered tracks and comes packed with 34 tracks. It'll set you back $28 or 28€. It's due in August 2022 too.

The limited edition features a ‘X-Blaster Blue’ effect disc.

For fans in North America, you can preorder both vinyl here. If you live in Europe, you can grab yours here. And don't forget -- the Mega Man Legends 2 vinyl is still available to preorder, too!

Laced Records is no stranger when it comes to release Mega Man music on vinyl. In 2019 they released a special boxset with the soundtracks of Mega Man 1 to 11 and later, in 2020 they did the same with a boxset containing the soundtracks of Mega Man X to X8.

Hopefully more to come!

    1. It's because it will be air-mail, and if you're in the US and consider what's happening with the West Coast ports: $20-$30 just isn't that bad to know you'll actually receive it in a timely and secure manner. I personally appreciate that a lot of the Japanese retailers are not offering (or encouraging) freight shipping.

  2. These sound wonderful. I just don't have anything to play them on.

    1. You and me both. I have the 1-11 collection and the X collection and ordered the Legends one but I dont have a vinyl player lol. Been hesitant on taking that plunge since the cheapo players apparently damage records.
