'Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection' Celebrates Impending Launch By Livestreaming MegaMan NT Warrior Anime Starting Tomorrow

by Rainier on March 20, 2023 @ 5:25 p.m. PDT

Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection will upload all 10 Mega Man Battle Network titles, including graphics filters and additional bonus content.

The story of Mega Man Battle Network takes place in the near-future interconnected world of Net Society, which depends upon computer programs known as Network Navigators (or NetNavi for short) to manage everything from their toasters to city power grids. While the networked age brings all manner of convenience, it has also imported a wave of cybercrime eroding all levels of society. In these games, players take on the role of Lan Hikari using their PErsonal Terminal (or PET) and his NetNavi, MegaMan.EXE, to confront the culprits behind these cybercrimes. Players control MegaMan.EXE as he explores the net, engages in grid-based combat, and uses Battle Chips to gain devastating abilities capable of deleting even the most sinister viruses.

Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection features optional high resolution filters that allow players to enjoy smoother, less pixelated visuals. Players can turn the filters off/on at any time if they would prefer to enjoy the original visuals of the Battle Network games. Network Navigators will also be able to access over 1,000 pieces of concept art, character sketches, and official illustrations in the collection’s Gallery. The “Mystery Data” section will contain exclusive illustrations from past events and images of licensed goods from this era of Mega Man titles.

If you’d like to rock out to some tunes while browsing all of the art, the Music Player includes more than 180 tracks from all 10 titles.

To celebrate Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection's upcoming release, Capcom will live stream seasons 1 & 2 of the Mega Man NT Warrior Anime on the official CUSA Twitch Channel!

Mega Man NT Warrior loosely follows the main storylines of Mega Man Battle Network 1 & 2, where Lan Hikari and his NetNavi MegaMan.EXE attempt to stop the evil crime organization World Three from destroying the world.
