Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection Will Feature Online Battles And Chip Trading

More features have been announced for the upcoming Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection. First announced during June’s Nintendo Direct, the compilation of all 10 mainline Battle Network games will include online functionality allowing players to trade Battle Chips and engage in online battles.

Capcom dedicated a section of their Tokyo Game Show presentation to Mega Man Battle Network Legacy, even bringing out game director Masakazu Eguchi–better known as "Mr. Famous" to fans–to describe the new features in the compilation.

"We're currently working on online functions such as online battles and Chip trading for every series," said Mr. Famous. "We'll all still be connected in this game!"

In addition to the online functionality, the game’s title screen will feature a fully voiced MegaMan.EXE as your personal Navi. "He'll have various reactions based on your play and control style," noted Capcom in its TGS presentation. The title screen will be similar to the original series’ PET screen.

Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection combines all 10 mainline games from the series, including Mega Man Battle Network 1 and 2, Mega Man Battle Network 3 Blue & White, Mega Man Battle Network 4 Red Sun & Blue Moon, Mega Man Battle Network 5 Team Protoman & Team Colonel, and Mega Man Battle Network 6 Cybeast Gregar & Cybeast Falzar. Previously announced features include a gallery with over 1,000 images, a music player with over 180 songs, and an optional high-resolution filter that will make the game look a little less pixelated and a little more like some of Square Enix's modern remasters.

Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection is coming in 2023 to Switch, PS4, and Steam, and will be available in both physical and digital formats (except for Steam, where it's only digital). Capcom is also breaking the collection into two volumes, with Volume 1 containing Battle Networks 1 through 3, and Volume 2 containing Battle Networks 4 through 6.

Capcom promised more details to come in the future, so stay tuned.
