Alongside ROCKMAN HOLIC, We are ROCK-MEN! 2 releases in Japan this month on the 19th. And now thanks to Famitsu, we have the full track list plus some other details:
01. METAMORPHOSE （Original） 02. THEME OF ROCKMAN Xover （from Rockman Xover） 03. NAPALMMAN STAGE （from Rockman 5） 04. SKULLMAN STAGE （from Rockman 4） 05. Dr. WILY STAGE 2 （from Rockman 3） 06. EXPLOSE HORNECK STAGE （from Rockman X3） 07. DOPPLER STAGE 1 （from Rockman X3） 08. X vs ZERO （from Rockman X5） 09. Dr. WILY STAGE 1 -OMEGAMAN MIX- （from Rockman 2） 10. SNAKEMAN STAGE （from Rockman 3） 11. THEME OF ROCKMAN EXE （from Rockman EXE） 12. SKY WAVE （from Ryuusei no Rockman 2） 13. FLUTTER VS. GAZEL SHAFT （from Rockman DASH） 14. TIME AGAIN feat. DIMENSION （Original） 15. TIME AGAIN ROCK ver. （Original） 16. METAMORPHOSE feat. DIMENSION （Original）
First of all, yes, it appears we have some original tracks. This include METAMORPHOSE (perhaps the new ROCK-MEN theme song), and TIME AGAIN. TIME AGAIN is written by original Mega Man and Mega Man 2 composer Takashi Tateishi, aka Ogeretsu Kun. Meanwhile, the ad nauseum FLUTTER VS. GAZEL SHAFT [sic] track is performed by Makoto Tomozawa, who was behind the Mega Man Legends soundtrack, and also worked on Mega Man 7, Mega Man X and Mega Man 10.
Additionally, two of the albums tracks (including TIME AGAIN) are collaborations with Japanese fusion band DIMENSION. I'm not sure what connection DIMENSION has ever had with Mega Man, but it appears they are celebrating their 25th anniversary as well. Finally, as no real surprise, this album also comes with an exclusive Rockman Xover special card; this one being 8-bit Rockman.
Overall, some tracks I'm pretty excited about! It's disappointing that Flutter Vs. Gesellschaft seems to be the only Legends song in existence anymore, and I also wish the album had something from Zero and ZX. However, Napalm Man, Skull Man and MM3 Wily 2 are tracks that I'm really happy to get arrangements of. Hopefully samples will be coming along soon!
By way of PRC.
