▍About MegaMan Battle Network Series
Mega Man Battle Network is a tactical role-playing video game series created by Masahiro Yasuma and developed and published by Capcom as a spin-off of the Mega Man series.
The story is set in a near-future world where advanced network technology has become the norm, and the game captured the hearts of young children as they embarked on an adventure alongside the relatable protagonist.
The first game premiered in 2001 on the Game Boy Advance and takes place in an alternate continuity where computers and networking technology were the main focus on scientific advancement, rather than robotics.
There is a total of six mainline games, alongside several spin-offs. It also inspired an anime in Japan, called Rockman.EXE, with an adapted story.
