Mega Man Battle Network is an iconic series from Capcom that combines classic RPG elements with a unique tactical combat system.

Despite not being designed with esports in mind, Mega Man Battle Network has withstood the test of time and even cultivated it’s own competitive grassroots community that’s going strong to this day.

This is the story of Mega Man Battle Network esports and the people behind it.

  1. Binge watching MMBN videos after the switch bundle trailer dropped. The fact that people literally made their own version of the game to run Esports, based on an old GBA game I played as a kid is wild. Great video man!

  2. In the end, the Battle Network fan gets the W. Let's goooooo

  3. 1 year later announcement of MMBN "remaster" on steam, switch and PS

  4. Don't mind me, just passing by after the Legacy Collection announcement. Hype!

  5. I come from the future to say that Megaman Battle Network Legacy Collection will be a thing in 2023! Dreams do come true!

  6. finally coming to the switch let's gooooo! 🙂

  7. Megamna NT warrior was one of my childhood shows. Im 28 now and just started playing the battle network games. So much niceness from childhood 😭

  8. Let's hope this announced collection had WIFI Battles!!!

  9. Man they better have rollback online for this legacy collection. If they go all out (surely for a 2023 release) it’ll pay off big time.

  10. MMBN Collection coming to PC let's fucking goooo!

  11. Hey 2022 here, were getting ports…. Can we NICELY request capcom attempt to add online play? There hasnt been any word on network/pvp…. I wish I knew there was a scene behind the game a LONG time ago!

  12. yayyyyy we will now have a legacy collection .

  13. The collection coming to switch! Hopefully this kicks back off

  14. Writing this comment after the trailer dropped and what made BN so successful was the lack of information out there for everything. I started at BN3 and I was a kid but the only resource we had was game FAQs no YT or anything so the best combos and what not was discovered by your friends or yourself running into it. I loved and hated that but looking back on it grinding all 7 stars in BN3 by myself was such a damn achievement

  15. Mega man battle network legacy collection let's fucking gooooooo

  16. Imagine they implement roll back online battles on the switch. I would play this game forever lmao

  17. Now with the announcement of the MMBN Legacy Collection, this scene will exponentially grow. Especially if the collection has the ability to play online.

  18. It took a year but N1GP was able to get MMBN6 with rollback

  19. Mega man battle network white version I could never beat it

  20. Battle network got rollback but smash still dont 💀

  21. Battle Network Legacy Collection, Persona 3 and 4! Welp, looks like I'm set for 2023

  22. this game isn't even fun regularly, why would you wanna play it competitively

  23. Nice to see some pokemon slander right on the video title lmao

    Jokes aside, no, pokemon is the esports game on gba.
    Megaman was designed with SINGLE-player in mind, its not a esports game by any degree

  24. This is one series I can’t wait to get into. It’s so unique and up my alley and I’m glad to know there’s a competitive scene. I heard there is rumored to be an online mode in the new collection coming up so that will be sweet!

  25. Thanks for this! Definitely gonna look into this as this was one of my favorite franchises👌🏿🙌🏿

  26. I was a beast at this game back in the day, particularly Battle Network 3 for me.

  27. this is so awesome! i remember finding out and seeing it was being held tournament wise etc years ago i was like "its about time!"

  28. Advance Wars also has a grassroot competitive scene

  29. And now, we have a release next year of the complete series haha, as so many say…LET’S GOOOOOO!!!

  30. i use to own the physical device where you had to put physical chips but the game was so bad that i gave up on it. was too poor for a GBA at the time so i never got to own this game.
