*'Lan, get our chips ready!'* Ship to Shore PhonoCo. Is proud to present the original Game Boy Advance soundtrack to CAPCOM's Mega Man Battle Network, available on vinyl for the first time! Debuting on the 32-bit GBA in 2001, Mega Man Battle Network was an innovative departure from the Mega Man franchise, taking inspiration from the popular wave of collectible card games at the time. Forgoing the traditional action platforming elements as was expected in a Mega Man title, Battle Network is instead a real time tactical RPG set in an alternate timeline to the main Mega Man games. The move of gameplay style proved so popular that Battle Network spawned it's own prominent series of video games throughout the decade, and is a franchise still beloved to this day. Composer Akari Kaida brings complex melodies and bombastic energy to the proceedings, brilliantly blending the intense action and playful antics of the Battle Network world. Now newly remastered, along with original artwork from the CAPCOM archives, Kaida's score to the very first Mega Man Battle Network entry is finally pressed on vinyl - a perfect piece of nostalgia for those who were there from the beginning and a fresh discovery for those new to the world of VGM!
