(PHOENIX, AZ) After finishing up a successful Kickstarter campaign in which he achieved 300% of his original $5,000 goal, teacher, rapper and gamer MEGA RAN is prepared to release the first of many unique stretch goals, a full album of Mega Man-sampled tracks, done by commission, aptly titled Mega Ran Com:Mission.
The title is a play on the Command Mission title, released in 2004 on the PS2 and GameCube systems. The new album samples from classic titles from Mega Man 2 all the way up to Mega Man & Bass.
“I’m excited to return to my roots,” Ran says from the studio. “I tossed out the idea of returning to Mega Man and the fam was down. I got back into the lab and we made some really fun jams.”
