Fictional and Futuristic
In December of 2007 Capcom put out a duo of arranged soundtrack albums for Rockman’s 20th anniversary.

The times, they are a-changin’
Time for more answers from The Answer, this time talking about the classic-to-X time interval and the disappearance of Rock’s charge and slide abilities in 9 and 10.
