Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection, which contains all 10 mainline Mega Man Battle Network games, will be released on April 14, 2023.

Capcom announced the Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection earlier this year during its Nintendo Direct Mini. While it was announced for the Switch, it will also be released on PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam as well.

The Legacy Collection will include all the previously exclusive Battle Chips as well as NetBattles for online play. Pre-orders for the full bundle can be purchased for $59.99 while the digital version will be split into Volumes 1 and 2 which can be purchased separately for $39.99 each.

The Legacy Collection includes:

  • Mega Man Battle Network
  • Mega Man Battle Network 2
  • Mega Man Battle Network 3 White
  • Mega Man Battle Network 3 Blue
  • Mega Man Battle Network 4 Red Sun
  • Mega Man Battle Network 4 Blue Moon
  • Mega Man Battle Network 5 Team Protoman
  • Mega Man Battle Network 5 Team Colonel
  • Mega Man Battle Network 6 Cybeast Gregar
  • Mega Man Battle Network 6 Cybeast Falzar

Additionally, the Collection includes a built-in music library with over 180 tracks, an art gallery, a high-resolution visual filter that can be turned on or off depending on your preference, online Chip trading, and online PvP and Ranked matches.

Mega Man Battle Network was a spinoff series released during the Game Boy Advance and Game Boy DS era. Unlike the 2D platforming of Mega Man games, the Battle Network games turned battles into strategy games set on a 3×6 grid where players used a collection of Battle Chips to fight enemies in grid combat. They were pretty awesome.

To celebrate, Capcom is planning on releasing the Mega Man NT Warrior anime series on its YouTube and Twitch place sometime in 2023.
