    Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection To Include Patch Cards, Buster MAX Mode

    Breeze through all ten games with a boosted Buster, or try out previously Japan-exclusive Patch Cards.

    During today’s “Capcom Spotlight“, Director Masakazu “Mr. Famous” Eguchi announced Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection will include all 499 previously released Patch Cards and a brand new Buster MAX Mode. “Patch Cards” were Japan-exclusive physical cards released for the original Battle Network games. These previously had to be scanned into the games with separate hardware. Their inclusion in this collection means this is the first time North American and European players will have access to these cards, albeit in a digital form. These cards can be used from Battle Network 4 onwards.

    The new Buster MAX Mode has been added to help players solely interested in the story make swift progress through the 10 titles included in Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection. In this mode, MegaMan.EXE’s standard attack gets its damage multiplied by 100. With this much power, every enemy in the game should be defeated in no time. This quality of life addition might also be appreciated by players who’ve already beaten these games and are revisiting them. However, this mode is exclusive to single-player, so network battles will remain fair.
