Rockman EXE Transmission OST Announced! ... Wait, What?

We're getting soundtracks galore for Mega Man's 25th anniversary, so why not toss another into a mix? And while we're at it, how about make it an original soundtrack for a GameCube game released back in 2003? Yes, for whatever reason, Rockman EXE Transmission (Mega Man Network Transmission to us in the west) is getting its own soundtrack nine years after the fact.

Actually, the context might make this a little more understandable. The soundtrack (full name "Game Music Discovery Series: Rockman EXE Transmission Soundtrack") is being released by SuperSweep's own label. SuperSweep is the company Capcom contracted to compose the music for Transmission. The listing on SuperSweep's shop says that the album is the result of fans requesting an official soundtrack for a number of years. And heck, I won't lie, I really do love Transmission's soundtrack.

The 28 track album, containing the music by Shinji Hosoe, Ayako Saso and Kosuke Yasui, will release on November 2nd this year for ¥2,625 (roughly $33.50 US). As far as I can tell right now, SuperSweep's online store is the ONLY way to buy this soundtrack (which is seemingly being released with no connection to Capcom), so it may turn out to be a pretty rare item before long. Good luck to you music fans!
