Capcom have announced a vinyl release titled “Rockman 1-3 Sound Collection”. Rockman is the Japanese name for Mega Man, and the release will feature music from the first three entires in the series.
The release will be a single LP on black vinyl and appears to be housed in a single-pocket jacket with game art.
It is priced at ￥4,167 and will be sold at Capcom’s booth at Tokyo Game Show 2018 from September 20-23, 2018. It has also been available from several Japanese retailers online with a release date of October 24, 2018, but appears to have sold out most places now.
It was originally announced via an Indiegogo campaign from late last year, but now it’s gotten a proper announcement from Enjoy The Toons Records and a release date.
The 8-Bit Time Paradox is an arrangement album managed in large part by Giovanni Rotondo. It contains arrangements of music from Metroid, Breath Of The Wild, Final Fantasy VII, Ocarina Of Time, Mega Man, Titanfall 2, Shovel Knight, and Battlefield 1. The tracks are performed by several artists known for their video game music arrangements on Youtube and elsewhere on the internet.
The release will be a single LP housed in a GameBoy game-inspired single pocket jacket with art by Jeff Langevin. It will be available in three color variants – “cartridge” grey, “boss battle” purple-in-clear with white splatter, and “time paradox” purple smoke. The two former are limited to 200 copies each and the latter 100 copies.
The release is priced at $21 through Enjoy The Toons Records, and £23 through Giovanni Rotondo’s Bandcamp.
Orders open through Enjoy The Toons’ store here on May 5, 2018. It can already be ordered through Giovanni Rotondo’s Bandcamp here, which ships from the UK instead of the US.
Spacelab9’s delayed and long-awaited Mega Man picture disc can now be purchased through Hot Topic’s website and stores.
If you don’t like picture discs, Hot Topic, or both then you’re in luck as Spacelab9 has promised to release a standard vinyl version on their own site on a later undisclosed date.
Update: While I was writing this the release sold out. It might still be available in-store, though.
Update 2: In a comment on a reddit-post, Spacelab9 said that they hope to be able to ship the standard vinyl versions in late September/early October.
