Mega Man Battle Network 4.5: Real Operation English Translation Released!

Thanks to the tireless efforts of The Rockman EXE Zone, fans can finally enjoy Mega Man Battle Network 4.5: Real Operation in English. The English-translation is now complete, featuring a fully-realized localization that's practically indistinguishable from a would-be-official localization. This is the game that would have been in your hands 15-years-ago!

That's not all, though! The development team went the extra mile to include bug fixes and other goodies for the game:

  • North American and European patch, each with their own title screen and minor differences.
  • A fully localized Instruction Booklet in the same style as the other games!
  • A North American boxart for the game.
  • An Upgrade Patch for the Japanese version of the game, which backports all our bugfixes.
  • A translated interview with the development team from the Rockman EXE4.5 official strategy guide.
  • Starter save files for those who just want to play with their favorite NetNavi.

You can download the English translation and all of the above content exclusively at The Rockman EXE Zone here.

A big congratulations to team TREZ on their work!


  1. Last time I played it only battles were translated. Gonna have to go back now that it's fully playable!

  2. Is it just me, or did they miss the back side of the box? I only see the front side of the box.
    Anyways, they did an impressive job on this! :)

  3. I share it in case, it's the website of Rockman PM, it shows how to get the hp per netnavis.
    You can avoid the localization of buster UP and other spoil but i think, for HP, it could be necessary to know how to get it, if you want check:

    Awesome,i played the game 2 or 3 times and i have still a lot of fun by playing it again ^^ Especially when we can understand what happens in the story with netnavis even if it's not a huge thing in Exe 4.5!

  4. Awesome news! I did finish this game in the past with a faqs help, but I left behind so many Chips and items... For Megaman completionists, this game is probably the one with the highest replayability Feature ever due to the fact you have to open different routes with each character ... And Boy, there are so many of them! Finally I can go through each route with every character

  5. My old maps on GameFAQs should still be valid:

  6. I am ashamed to say that i did'nt even knew about this game. Well, better late than never, now that i discover its existence, i'm gonna play it.
    I have to see if i can import a copy of it.

  7. Do y'all know if it will be compatible with the real gameplay patch? (The one that allows you to control the Navi and have regular custom screen?

    1. It is. You can patch it after the translation is patched onto the ROM. I'm using it and so far, it's been great.

  8. If we ever get a Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection, I hope an English patch for this and for Rockman.EXE Operate Shooting Star are included as unlockables or hidden extras.
