A Mega Man tribute album from Capcom's own sound team is set for release later this month.
If you like Mega Man then you're really going to dig We Are ROCK-MEN!, a tribute album created by the Rock-Men, a "Mega Man tribute band" made up of member's of Capcom's own sound staff. The 17-track album features remixes of music from various Mega Man games, with exciting titles like "Opening Stage," "Ending," "Boss" and "Stage Select."

2. Game Start (Mega Man)

Based on the new promotional video marking the looming launch of the album, it promises to be a must-have for Mega Man fans and videogame music lovers in general. There's just one problem: the album comes out in Japan on September 21 and can be ordered here, but you're going to have to be fluent in Japanese if you want to have any realistic hope of making it happen. No word yet if something a little more English-language-friendly is planned but we'll keep you posted.
