Capcom has revealed more Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection features at Tokyo Game Show 2022, including online functionality. The director, Masakazu “Mr. Famous” Eguchi, did not go into full details, but he noted that online battles and chip trading will be available across all ten titles in the collection. Fans of the original games will adore this feature at this age because it makes it easier to connect with other players without having to use a Game Boy Advance link cable during the old days.
The Capcom stream also shared and reconfirmed additional features such as the Personal Terminal (PET) screen, a voiced 3D avatar of Mega Man as the player’s Navi in the selection screens, an art gallery boasting over 1,000 character and concept design illustrations across the franchise, the option to toggle a high-quality image filter, and a music player that includes 188 songs from the games’ soundtracks. Isn’t Capcom being very generous?
