Mega Man Battle Network 2 Now Available For Virtual Console
Remember when there used to be too many Mega Man games? Those were good times...

The original Mega Man Battle Network came out on Virtual Console last summer, so it's nice (and not particularly surprising) to see Capcom follow suit with the 2002 sequel, appropriately titled Mega Man Battle Network 2. Part 2 of this Mega Man action-RPG spin-off series introduced several new game mechanics and continued the story of Lan and his partner, MegaMan.EXE. Check out the brief trailer and brief plot synopsis from Nintendo below!

Lan and his NetNavi MegaMan.EXE return in this second chapter of the Battle Network universe! Three months have passed since World Three disbanded, but a new Net crime organization has flooded the network with a virus that is fast gaining momentum. Aided by other fellow Net-Battlers, Lan and MegaMan.EXE must travel across the world in their quest to become stronger. Purchase supplies and exchange information in local NetSquares, battle an assortment of enemy viruses in real time, and collect Battle Chips as rewards to equip new abilities. Get ready for a new adventure in cyberspace as you stop this latest virus from spreading!

Whether you're a long-time fan looking to play the games again or a wet-behind-the-ears neophyte fresh off the Virtual Console train, Mega Man Battle Network 2 is now available on the Wii U Virtual Console for $7.99 US. So hop to it!
