Save the date: Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection is out on April 14

Save the date Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection is out on April 14

Pre-orders are up now, too

By way of a new trailer, Capcom has confirmed that Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection is out on April 14.

Amazingly, the extent of the collection’s online play has been revealed (Netbattle), with support for private and public matches. This is in addition to chip, style, and program trading (which will only be supported in Mega Man Battle Network 3 “and beyond”). As previously confirmed, the collection series will also have “over 180 songs” to listen to, as well as “over 1,000 images” to peruse in a gallery.

You can pre-order it now on PS4, PC (Steam) and Switch, via a $60 bundle that includes both collections (the physical version has “one game card” if you were wondering). Individual collections will be available “separately at launch” for $39.99 each. In the meantime, here’s some more info, and a recap of what each collection actually entails.

When this was announced it was completely unexpected, but I’m stoked this happened. My original copies of every game are readily available in every collection, but this series deserves to live on through a new generation. While Capcom is no stranger to pushing out Mega Man collections instead of new releases: it’s good enough for me, so long as said collections actually have a good amount of love and care put into them. So far, this packed Legacy Collection seems to be heading down the right path.

Here’s a look at the online systems revealed this week
