New Rockman Album from the ROCK-MEN

Another new Rockman arrange album has been announced by Ucchy-san on Rockman Unity today. This album will be fronted by a team of Capcom's own sound staff who puts on the "We are ROCK-MEN!" podcast on Capcom's Sound Sphere website this includes Masahiro "Asian Guitar Emperor" Aoki on guitar, whose work includes Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes, Yasumasa "Original Song Destroyer" Kitagawa on bass, whose work includes Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars, and Mitsuhiko "Bleep Bloop Maestro" Takano on drums, whose work includes Mega Man Xtreme. Guest musicians include Azusa Kato on keyboard and Reo Uratani on guitar (who is currently working on Mega Man Legends 3).

For now, little other details for the album are available, including a release date or what it will even be called. Ucchy-san's blog post contains a couple videos of a talk with Yasumasa Kitagawa, and he also advertises the latest ROCK-MEN! podcast which contains a version of the Mega Man X2 Opening Stage (although I don't know if this meant to be on the album). In fact, the crew seems to be interested in taking ideas from fans about the album, since there are so many Rockman soundtracks available these days (areas to fill in are the message title, your nickname, your age, your gender (male/female) and then your message). How such information will be used remains to be seen.

I'm always up for some more rockin' Rockman music! We'll keep you posted on the details as they develop.
