Akiko Kimura, the voice actress of Rockman in the Rockman EXE anime, will be on-hand to share memories of her work from the anime series. Battle Network 4 will be showcased during this program; the game itself is not available to play on the showroom floor. That stream will be here.

Both segments have an approximate duration of 1 hour and they will be available only in Japanese.


Mega Man Battle Network 1 through 3 will be available to demo on the TGS showroom floor. Capcom are giving players a chance to learn the controls ahead of time. Check them out above.

It's pretty much what you'd come to expect from the original games' controls, not to mention how previous Legacy Collections used the "-" and "+" buttons on Nintendo Switch or the "touch panel" and "options" button on PlayStation 4.

We're one week away from the showcase. Look forward to it!


  1. The fact that this is not on Xbox is a crime.

    1. iirc the xbox hasnt sold very well in japan so no reason to even waste money porting it to that and iirc everywhere else the xbox is the third option so again no worth it cost wise.

    2. Plenty of JRPGs have suddenly found their way onto Xbox in recent years with no logic behind their releases. Heck, even Square Enix has been putting games on Xboxes again even though they already know it's a dumb idea....

    3. Xbox is gaining ground, from what I hear. Sony lost a lot of native support and Nintendo is kicking butt.
