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.

Dex (a non playable character from the series) has various Nintendo consoles lying in his room in various games in the series :

In MMB1, Dex has a Game Cube in his room, and you can jack in it.

In MMB2, he has two original GBA's, and you can jack in them too (via the link cable ?).

In MMBN3 White Version, Dex has a AV Famicom (the second revision of the Famicom) and there is Famicom cartridges lying on the floor.

In MMBN3 Blue version, he has a SNES with a blue cartridge in (was there any blue SNES game ?), and it looks like there is still Famicom cartridges lying on the floor. In both versions, it says old games can stay just as fun as they were.

In MMBN4 Red Sun, Dex has a gold Game Cube (it says it's the same color as Guts Man's) that you can jack into, and again a AV Famicom with colored Famicom cartridges lying on the floor.

In MMBN4 Blue Moon, Dex has a normal colored Game Cube where you can jack in, and a SNES (it says it looks like a memento from somewhere).

In MMBN5 team Protoman, he has a limited stripped Game Cube (does that even exist ?) and a gold-ish GBA SP.

In MMBN5 team Colonel, he has a plain gray Game Cube and a plain gray GBA SP.
