Mega Man Network Transmission - GC - Preview
E3 2003 - First Look
Mega Man is celebrating his 15th birthday this year by releasing his first game on the Gamecube called Mega Man Network Transmission. Mega Man Network Transmissions takes place between Mega Man Battle Network and Mega Man Battle Network 2. A month after Mega Man Battle Network a new threat known as the “Zero Virus” is introduced, and it’s Mega Man and Lan’s duty to stop it.
Mega Man Network Transmission once again uses the chip technology to upgrade abilities and weapons, and offers over 100 chips to fully customize your character. You’ll also be required to use some strategy to solve puzzles that keep you from moving along. There are even some secret characters hidden within the network.
The cel-shaded look of Network Transmission is crisp, clean, and colorful. The backgrounds are beautiful and fun to look at, and the characters and enemies on screen look straight out of a comic book.
Mega Man Network Transmission looks to please fans of the Mega Man Network series as it tells more of the story. No word on if it will be linkable with the Gameboy Mega Man Network titles yet, but keep looking for more on Network Transmissions. Right now it’s scheduled to come out in June.
