The Megaman Battle Network Legacy Collection was just announced for the Nintendo Switch, and I for one can’t wait to dive back into this nostalgic adventure. The collection includes all 10 games in the series which makes this bundle a steal for $60.
The game isn’t your typical Megaman game. Instead, it is a JRPG with card game elements. Build your decks and collect abilities in order to save the world against viruses and shady organizations. This collection will support online play where you can battle against your friends or random people. The trailer seems to suggest that there will a ladder of some sort. While I doubt my abilities, I will be trying my best to win.
I remember this game was my obsession when I used to have it for the Gameboy advanced. It was one of the few games that I no-lifed because I loved everything about it. The art was great, the story was amazing, and the combat was so satisfying. I have since sold my copy, but my love for this game still burns in my heart. I can only hope that the memory is as powerful as the actual experience. In preparation, I will be rewatching the anime and possibly cringing at its cheesiness.
I was about 10 when I played this game, so I wasn’t very strategic. I played whatever was cool and somehow brute forced my way through the ones I could afford for the Gameboy. Now that I am much older and wiser, I will probably do the same, but I have google handy for when I get stuck. The game collection is set to release on April 14, 2023, for the Switch, PS4, and steam. You can preorder your copy today!
