Megaman Battle Network Legacy Collection featuring 10 classic games including different versions of the games in the series, from Mega Man Battle Network to Mega Man Battle Network 6, will release on 14 April 2023 and it is up for pre-order today
Mega Man Battle Network takes place in the Network Society, where advanced network technology has become the norm. People carry with them PETs, mobile devices equipped with sentient programs called NetNavis, which they use in order to enjoy the many benefits the network provides. But even though the network has improved their way of life, it has also brought with it new outlets for cybercrime. The protagonist, Lan Hikari, and his NetNavi, MegaMan.EXE, must work together to solve numerous incidents.
Follow Lan in the Real World, and MegaMan in the Cyber World, as they work together to resolve incidents surrounding them. Battles ensue when you encounter enemies in the Cyberworld. The player can move MegaMan.EXE freely within the red 3×3 grid while enemies attack from the blue area. Use Battle Chips to your advantage! Battle Chips have several uses including recovering HP, striking damage on enemies in diverse ways, and much more. Enjoy the action in the game and strategize your battles by figuring out when and how to use the diverse Battle Chips available.
