In 2023, Capcom plans to release the “Rockman EXE Advanced Collection”, which contains all the numbered titles of the legendary work “Rockman EXE” that captured the hearts of boys in the past. Not only can you play again on different platforms, but you can play all the multiple versions that exist according to the dial, and it has been revealed that the long-awaited online functions of Net Battler and token trading are in development course, for players who were children at that time. It is truly a dream work. I was able to test this work on the Capcom booth at TGS2022, which is currently being held, so I’ll report that experience this time. In this trial, you can play the beginning of the 4-track story from “Battle Network Rockman EXE” to “Battle Network Rockman EXE 3 BLACK”, which is the first half of the numbering work. “EXE” series has a big difference in picture touch and adding system etc. between “4” and later, but this time you can experience the nostalgic title from the first half. This time, the author chose “Rockman EXE 3 BLACK”, which was particularly popular among the series and was probably the most involved at the time, and let me try it. This time I was able to try the Nintendo Switch version. Before touching it, I thought it would be different from the Game Boy Advance of the time, but that was not the case at all, and I was able to play with the feelings I had inside. era. If you think about it, the layout of the controller buttons hasn’t changed much since then. In addition to the normal direction buttons, it is also possible to operate with a stick, so this is a small but nice point that is easier to move diagonally than before. On the other hand, I personally think that the directional buttons are better because delicate forward, backward, left and right operations are needed during the battle. You can enjoy it in a style that suits everyone, such as using the directional buttons during battle and the stick during exploration. And, after all, the true intention of the author is that the combat system of this work can only be found by the word “God”. The trial and error on how to choose combat chips and remove viruses on a compact 3×6 square is always interesting without fading away. Create your own strongest case and enjoy combos like card game, puzzles that think how to conquer enemies and use Rockman to avoid opponent’s attacks. The action of hitting your own attack, these three elements flow together exquisitely. In addition to not having all the first tokens, I was able to appreciate the style changes and Soul Unison, which are the hallmarks of each series, even before they were released. I haven’t been able to play this time for a long time, but I could strongly feel that the fun of the “EXE” series is still very much alive. I unwittingly enjoyed playing it so much that I ended up modifying the contents of the chip folder even though it wasn’t my own data, and naturally collecting bug fragments. Not only can you play all the works numbered from “1” to “6”, but you can (should) enjoy the long-awaited online battles. If you’re interested, why not come to TGS2022 and experience the nostalgia and passion of the game? ©CAPCOM CO., LTD.ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
