Description

In the future, a young net-battler named Lan, boots his 'personal information terminal'(PET) and prepares to hack into the network to battle net crime. Lan's PET is no ordinary network navigator. It is Mega Man.EXE, the cyber-identity, which infiltrates the crime-ridden network to battle destructive computer viruses. Defeat viruses in real time and collect Battle Chips program data, containing valuable weapons data and critical system info. Collect over 175 Battle Chips to help Netto and Mega Man.EXE restore peace and order to the network.

Trivia

So where did most of the bases for the Net Navis in the game come from? A little history lesson (note that when I say "classic series" I mean the original eight games that began on the NES):

Rockman/MegaMan.EXE: As if we can't tell...^_^

Roll.EXE: In the classic Mega Man series, Roll was Mega Man's little sister. In the Legends/Dash series, that Roll is Rock's best friend.

GutsMan.EXE: Modeled after Guts Man from the classic series (MM1 and MM7).

Blues/ProtoMan.EXE: Modeled after Mega Man's brother from the classic series, right down to the visor! (MM3 onward).

Glyde.EXE: Glyde's name was taken from the pirate captain Glyde from Mega Man Legends 2/Rockman Dash 2.

SharkMan.EXE: Taken from the extremely obscure Mega Man 3 for the PC (which is NOT the same game as its NES counterpart!).

MagicMan.EXE: Taken from Rockman & Forte/Mega Man & Bass (SNES/GBA).

Forte/Bass.EXE: Modeled (a bit TOO much) after Mega Man's fiercest rival from the classic series.

Wily: Hmmm...who DOES he look like...? ^_^
