Mega Man Legends Singer Rearranges Theme Songs For 15th Anniversary

By Spencer . September 11, 2012 . 10:50am

Reika Morishita gave "Your Wind is Blowing" and "another sun" to Capcom for Rockman Dash, better known as Mega Man Legends in the West. This year is Mega Man Legends’ 15th anniversary and Morishita is celebrating by releasing rearranged versions of the both songs.

The two rearranged tracks are available now for 250 yen. Here is Morishita’s rearranged version of Your Wind is Blowing…

 

 

… and the original song.

 

 

Amazon.jp has a preview of "another sun" on their site.

    Finally! I had been waiting for this for a while now since I originaly hear that she was doing this.

    Anyone else got this reaction at reading the title:

    “Mega Man Legends…”  =D

    “…Singer Rearranges Theme Songs For 15th Anniversary” D=

    ?

    The second song you linked is Another Sun, which was also rearranged alongisde Your wind is blowing.
    And the first link isn’t even the rearranged version, it’s just a new upload with a video they made for it to promote the new release a few months ago. Oh well.

    Nothing quite like ruining a good old song with terrible unfitting disco beats.

    Got a little TOO happy seeing that picture and seeing 15th anniversary, thinking the world must really be ending this year if Capcom was actually going to give me what I want most (knowing it was impossible), and then I read the title :(

  • kevinposta

    Exactly why is this on PSP? I mean, sure, they ported the MML games to PSP but I see really no connection other than that.
    Shouldn’t it just be “Article”?
    (I thought it was an actual PSP announcement : <<<)

       Probably because the latest and most available version of the game is the one on PSP. And also on PSN, which makes it possible for Vita users to grab it for around $10.

      You are not alone~.

    If this marks a new ray of hope on the development of Megaman Legends or other Megaman properties, count me in. I really don’t care about the rearranged songs.

    Edit: Yes, another angry Megaman fan.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    None of these songs were in the English versions.

    • Anime10121

       Yeah and honestly, I LOVE the US closing theme to Legends 1.  All the quotes through the ending just makes you remember how awesome your journey was and all the characters you met and loved over the duration of the game.

      Oh and it helps that the instrumental played BEHIND the quotes is one of the best Megaman songs I’ve ever heard :)

    This year is Mega Man’s 15th anniversary!

    Capcom: “who’s Mega Man”

      That guy you left to rot on the moon. Don’t act like you don’t know who I am talking about. You even cancelled the project to get him off said moon.

      The Mega Man celebrations will kick off in December in the U.S., not before that.

      What @Ishaan:disqus says is true, as Capcom didnt actually start announcing serious plans for SF’s anniversary until about 3 months before (SF’s ann. is in August, they started announcing plans in May).  So technically, the earliest we should be hearing about Mega’s anniversary plans are next month in October, which would be 3 months before Mega’s anniversary.  Though we likely wont be seeing anything until December as Ishaan mentioned.  SF as a franchise brings in far more revenue than Megaman does, so I’m sure much more effort will be going into SF’s (although it sucks cuz I like Megaman a lot more).

    I’m already worried which label Reika Morishita/this rearrangement will be printed by.  (I seriously hope it’s not avex.)

    Just to support the megaman cause in anyway possible i’m gonna buy this… RIP megman…you will forever have a place in my heart…

    Megaman Legends 3 !! hahaha

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      Don’t play with my emotions Capcom. I may have grown up after playing Legends 2, but deep inside I’m still a brat who dreams of playing Legends 3 to see if MegaMan will leave the Moon.

    Rubbing salt on our wounds, Capcom?

  • Vigaman

    As David B. has mentioned, the 1st link you posted for “Morishita’s rearranged version of Your Wind is Blowing…” is actually just her old version of Your Wind is Blowing but with real life video. And the 2nd link you posted is her original “Another Sun” track. The actual rearranged tracks sounded a little more techno-ish. You can sample them both on Amazon. I’m totally lovin’ them!

  • Etopen

    Just reminding you that supporting any further attempts to milk the franchise from capcom (that´s all they´ll do with megaman from now on) means supporting their way of doing things and canceling Legends.
    In my case, just like they said they ¨Didn´t need¨ to release Legends 3, I don´t need capcom games anymore.
