Similar to other retro compilations such as Capcom Fighting Collection and Capcom Arcade Stadium, Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection will also have a gallery that consists of over 1,000 illustrations and more than 150 songs from across the series to explore. The full collection will also be made available as separate digital volumes–Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection Vol. 1 and Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection Vol. 2–as well as physical PS4 and Switch editions.

Mega Man Battle Network Collection

If you’re unfamiliar with the series, Mega Man Battle Network is set in a near-future world where the internet has evolved into the Network Society. People carry with them PETs, mobile devices equipped with sentient programs called NetNavis, which they use to explore a network that has fallen prey to a new form of cyber-crime. As Lan Hikari and his NetNavi, MegaMan.EXE, players will have to solve cases and crimes in this digital landscape.

For this edition, Capcom says that it has used a high-resolution filter to remove the jaggy Game Boy Advance edges from the games, creating a smoother visual effect.

Today’s Nintendo Direct had a few other announcements that you can catch up on, as games such as Dragon Quest Treasures, Harvestella, and The Portal Collection were announced. Return to Monkey Island also had some new gameplay to show off, as well as confirmation that it’ll be a timed console-exclusive on Switch.
