ROCKMAN HOLIC promo has a kickass X vs. Zero battle


9:00 PM on 10.26.2012



A few weeks ago, I shared news of five upcoming Mega Man albums. Among those is ROCKMAN HOLIC, a 16-track vocal arrange album by the Japanese music label SOUND HOLIC. I really enjoyed the previous Mega Man-themed arrange album, Rockman Kai, so I'm looking forward to more cheesy, Japanese-y, anime-fueled fun.

This new promotional trailer features the track "X-Buster," which predominantly sources the "X vs. Zero" theme from Mega Man X5. Accompanying the sample is a badass animation inspired by the X5 showdown between X and the corrupted Zero. Blows are exchanged, X dons a "SOUND HOLIC" armor to turn the tide, then Sigma drops in ready for business. Makes me mad that there isn't a full-fledged X anime -- excluding "The Day of Sigma" OVA in Maverick Hunter X.

But the best part happens at the very end when the spokesperson announces release details. Does that voice sound familiar? It ought to! That's Masako Nozawa, the legendary VA who voices Goku and his sons in all incarnations of Dragon Ball! And according to the track list found at either of the links below, she'll also be contributing vocals to the song "Cutman Blues."

I am totally geeking out right now. I will definitely be buying ROCKMAN HOLIC when it arrives on December 19 for ¥1980 (about $25) faster than you can say "Kamehameha!"
