The Battle Network series began in 2001 with the first game Mega Man Battle Network, set in a near-future world where advanced network technology has become the norm. The Game Boy Advance games trade off platforming for grid-based battles.

“The game captured the hearts of young children as they embarked on an adventure alongside the relatable protagonist,” the official blog post reads.

The series featured combined elements of card battles and action games, and the Switch ports are set to include a high-resolution filter as well. This filter option was used in the Mega Man x Legacy Collection, but it’s making comeback, allowing players to enjoy games free of jagged edges. The filter can be turned on and off to the players liking.

The Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection will also feature an art gallery with more than 1,000 illustrations, as well as a music collection with 150 songs. The games will only be available digitally upon release.

In other news, Square Enix has unveiled its life sim RPG Harvestella, which is set to come to Nintendo Switch and PC in November.
