Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection features optional high resolution filters that allow players to enjoy smoother, less pixelated visuals. Players can turn the filters off/on at any time if they would prefer to enjoy the original visuals of the Battle Network games. Network Navigators will also be able to access over 1,000 pieces of concept art, character sketches, and official illustrations in the collection’s Gallery. The “Mystery Data” section will contain exclusive illustrations from past events and images of licensed goods from this era of Mega Man™ titles. If you’d like to rock out to some tunes while browsing all of the art, the Music Player includes more than 180 tracks from all 10 titles.
These games have had a big renaissance in the last couple years with a competitive scene popping up. One Step From Eden really scratch the BN itch, but it’s so great to see them brought to modern life. I hope this does well and we might see a seventh soon.
It was only a matter of time I guess. Oh well, I've already played them all but it'll fit right into my collection.
I'm hoping 5 includes the DS version, but I won't be surprised if it doesnt.
