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

Anyone remember the days of copy protection on your computer games? For example, you may to have had the original disk in the drive while playing, or you had to enter info from the manual, or whatnot.

Guess what? Capcom brought that back!

If you attempt to play Battle Network using an emulator, you won't be able to proceed through the school networks to fight the Navi Boss, because the ID for the final door leading to him is generated by the cartridge itself! A ROM can't generate the password, so you're stuck if you try to play this game on an emulator.

What have we learned, kids? If you want to play the game so badly just BUY IT!! Piracy is bad! Very very bad!
