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.

As of March 2002, an anime series based on RockmanEXE began running on the Japanese television station TV Tokyo. The animation for the series was done by Capcom's own in-house animation studio, Xebec, along with several members of Capcom's staff (as well as the author/illustrator for a RockmanEXE manga series that ran in the Japanese manga magazine Koro Koro) writing the stories for each episode. That being said, the series is excellent, with some great stories and often hilarious moments. It's highly recommended, and is said that Capcom U.S.A. will translate it and run it on U.S. TV networks if the demand is high enough.
