The highly anticipated Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection is now available. If you are wondering where to start, here is our pick for the best game in the collection.
Mega Man Battle Network is a game series released for the first time in 2001 and published by Capcom. It is a spin-off of Mega Man, taking place in an alternate reality where people create digital personas to navigate the Net. The story follows Lan Hikari, a fifth grader who adopted MegaMan as his Net persona.
The first game in the mainline came out for the Game Boy Advance in 2001. The sixth and final game came out in 2006 for the same console.
What is the best game in the Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection?
All six games in the series were developed for the Game Boy Advance. This means that on a graphic level, all six games were close. The main differences came from the changes and improvements in gameplay each version introduced.
According to fans of the series, the best game is Mega Man Battle Network 3: Blue and White version. WWW, the game’s main villain, returns with plans to resurrect its Internet prototype. Lan and Megan Man take it upon themselves to stop WWW once again and prevent the corruption from spreading.
The third installment in the series added the Navi Customizer feature, which allows the players to collect parts and create unique builds. Players can prioritize different abilities depending on their preferences. This feature became a standard for the games to come. Overall, the interface of the game improves, making it more player friendly.
Mega Man Battle Network 3 had what many considered to be the best soundtrack in the series. The story in the game takes a sadder turn, making it a title that is both exciting and moving.
The Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection is now available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC. Volume One goes for $39.99 and includes the first three games in the series.
