Savor the international flavor of the Mega Man 6 OST

Fighting robots 'round the world

["Rockman Rockman 6" by Kinniku]

After being denied a release on Wii's Virtual Console, the final NES Mega Man has at long last made it to the American 3DS eShop. Before we graduate to the synth goodness of the SNES, let's enjoy one last serving of native NES chiptunes with the Mega Man 6 OST. For $8.95, you will score both the classic and PS1 Complete Works soundtracks, the latter which also includes "Kaze yo Tsutaete," Roll's vocal theme from Mega Man Battle & Chase.

This is the big one, guys. I may consider MM2 my favorite Mega Man game purely out of a sense of nostalgia, but by every other measure, MM6 is my favorite of the Classic series -- and here's the proof. It's such a shame that franchise fatigue prevented most players from truly appreciating how polished the last NES outing was.

Among MM6's many triumphs was its soundtrack, rich in international flavor. Each of the Robot Masters hailed from a different country, and their theme songs reflected their homelands -- the Middle Eastern sound of Flame Man's domain, the imperial rhythm of Yamato Man's castle, and even the steady horse clopping on Tomahawk Man's reservation. Much, much, MUCH improved over MM5's rather sleepy tunes.

So yeah, this release gets my seal of approval big time.
