Capcom has been doing a very good job in making old entries of the Mega Man series available on modern hardware. Earlier this month Mega Man Battle Network 5 has been made available on the European Wii U eShop and the next entry of the Battle Network series will be made available on the Japanese eShop in just a week
The new entry of the Mega Man series launching next week in Japan is Mega Man Battle Network 6, the final entry of the series to get released on Gameboy Advance. Both versions of the game, Cybeast Gregar and Cybeast Falzar, will be available for purchase for the price of 702 yen each. We currently have no news on a possible Western release at the moment but chances are pretty high, considering other Mega Man Battle Network games such as the already mentioned Mega Man Battle Network 5 have been released outside Japan.
Mega Man Battle Network 6 is the final entry of the series and comes with several new gameplay features. One of these new features is the chip limiting system, which limits how many of the same chip players can keep in a folder. The Tag Chip System is another of the new gameplay mechanics introduced in Mega Man Battle Network 6, allowing players to tag 2 chips together to access chip combos and more. The Soul Unison system included in Mega Man Battle Network 4 and 5 also received a major overhaul in Mega Man Battle Network 6, with the Cross System taking its place. Even with all the additions, Mega Man Battle Network 6 doesn’t play all that differently from previous entries, making fans of the series feel right at home.
Mega Man Battle Network 6 will be released on November 18th on the Japanese Wii U eShop. There are currently no news on a possible Western release but we will let you know more about the matter as soon as possible.
