Choose your racer and head out on the tracks, and if you win, you'll get to steal parts off your opponent's cars, and eventually, you'll race against the mad Dr. Wily himself!
The U.S. was almost about to get Mega Man Battle & Chase. It was already being advertised in U.S. gaming magazines and had a firm release date set. Then Sony stepped in and denied them approval to release the game. Capcom had no choice but to cancel the whole thing.
Roll's theme song, Winds, Let Him Know, was first used in Rockman Battle & Chase, then spread out to Marvel Vs. Capcom and Rockman 6 for the PS1. It was again her theme in MvsC, and played during the ending of Rockman 6 (when the Wily Robots were showing off).
The Japanese version of Battle & Chase has much voice acting, most of which is running commentary by two reporter robots in the game. Almost all of it was removed from the English version.
