Capcom has announced Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection. The game was announced during the June 28 Nintendo Direct, but will be releasing on multiple platforms.
The Mega Man Battle Network series follows the boy Lan and his NetNavi Mega Man. Rather than robots, the rogues gallery from the Mega Man franchise are reimagined as internet avatars and artificial intelligence programs called NetNavi.
Players fight on a 6×3 grid and build a “deck” of chips. These chips represent a wide variety of attacks, each with their own range, power, and area of effect.
You can find the trailer for Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection below.
2001 saw the birth of a brand-new Mega Man series with the release of the first Mega Man Battle Network game.
Set in a near-future world where advanced network technology has become the norm, the game captured the hearts of young children as they embarked on an adventure alongside the relatable protagonist. Complete with engaging game systems that combined elements of card battle and action games, the unique Data Action RPG went on to spawn a hit series.
Accompanying comics and cartoons went even further to cement the legacy of the series.
