This is how Mega Man would sound on Sega Genesis

Fan re-arrangements of every numbered Mega Man game

I've professed my love for the Sega Genesis' music capabilities numerous times, but people still look at me like I'm taking crazy pills. I am dead serious! I love the grungy, metallic sound of FM synth! It was the dressing that gave Sega the harder edge in comparison to Nintendo way back in the day. So obviously I enjoy good FM arrangements of non-Sega games.

London-based MixerProductions has spent the last few months reworking the soundtracks for all the numbered Mega Man games in the Sega synth style. He's currently working on MM8, and I'm guessing he'll eventually tackle Mega Man & Bass, 9, and 10 as well. And yeah, I know that Genesis music for MM1-3 already exists in the form of The Wily Wars, but like RushJet1's MM3 tribute, I am fascinated by a fan's take on preexisting material.

These were produced back-to-back beginning in November, so some tracks may not be as strong as others. That's not say there aren't standouts, like the Mega Man 7 opening stage theme above. In other tracks, Mixer has added classic Sega sound bites, like the Ninja Turtle's "Cowabunga" at the start of Dive Man's theme! All in all, I'm mightily impressed!
