Mega Man is getting a six-disc vinyl soundtrack collection

Trip the Light fantastic.

Mega Man, the bluest gent in all of gaming, is getting his own six-disc soundtrack compilation this December, taking the form of a very nicely presented vinyl collection from Laced Records.

The limited-edition compilation, officially titled Mega Man 1-11: The Collection, features 152 tracks, spanning over 30 years of game releases - squashed, as if by some sort of futuristic science magic, onto six discs presented in alternating Mega Man hues.

Each disc is sleeved with some very attractive artwork (and all delicately slithered into a "luxury ridged board slip case"), with the first three records featuring the complete remastered soundtracks of Mega Men 1-3.

The remaining discs consist of "a large selection of fan favourites" from Mega Man 4 through Mega Man 11. Those requiring track-listing specifics can find a complete run-down of included music on Laced Records' store page. It is a long list.

Mega Man 1-11: The Collection can be pre-ordered now for £90 if you're in the UK, and the set is scheduled to release in December.
