Earlier today during the Nintendo Direct Mini, it was announced that Capcom will be releasing the Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection on Nintendo Switch. Capcom’s press release however, says it’s not only headed to Nintendo Switch, but also PS4 and PC via Steam. The collection is scheduled to launch sometime in 2023. They state that it will contain all 10 Mega Man Battle Network titles and will include filters and additional content. Also, the collection will be sold together as one set and be available as two separate digital volumes as well. If you’re interested in buying the complete set for either Switch or PS4, you might be excited to hear that yes, there will be a physical edition.

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 Mantitles. 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.
