Another month, another Megaman game. The latest from the folks at Capcom has been released in two versions; Cybeast Gregar
and Cybeast Falzar
. Cybeasts? Well, a long time ago there were these super powerful virtual creatures that beat each other up so bad it changed the net. Their struggles formed a giant crater named the Underground, and apparently this was enough destruction for a while so they went to sleep for a long time. That is, until they were awakened by a mysterious foe
(dun Dun DUN). Megaman assumes the powers of one of the Cybeasts which he is able to use throughout the game, while Lan runs around in a new place (Cyber Town) making friends. There's also a Beast Over overdrive mode where if Megaman becomes too fatigued he becomes very powerful for a short amount of time, but afterwards is close to death. This game is also retailing for about 30 dollars online.
SUNNYVALE, Calif. - June 13, 2006 - Capcom*, a powerhouse in the
multi-billion dollar video game industry, today released Mega Man Battle
Network(r) 6 in two versions - Cybeast Gregar and Cybeast Falzar for the
Game Boy(r) Advance video game system. The popular net battle series
reaches a dramatic climax as familiar heroes, Lan and Mega Man, find
themselves on unfamiliar terrain both in the real and cyber worlds.
They will face the mightiest threats the series has ever seen but also
wield the greatest power ever available. Mega Man Battle Network 6
Cybeast Gregar and Mega Man Battle Network 6 Cybeast Falzar are now
available at retailers across North America and are rated 'E' for
everyone by the ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board).
In Mega Man Battle Network 6, Lan's father has received a job transfer
and the family moves to Cyber City, a town known for conducting various
technological experiments. Lan will meet new people and build new
friendships in the real world while Mega Man befriends helpful Navis and
encounters dangerous new enemies on the virtual plane. Together they
will face threats far more powerful and perilous than they ever have
A long time ago, two ancient creatures with unimaginable power ravaged
the net. These two behemoths, called "Cybeasts," clashed against each
other with such force that the entire virtual landscape was changed
forever. One embodied the form of a vicious wolf, with massive fangs
and horrific howls that reached far and wide. The other was a ferocious
bird with razor sharp claws and immense wings that flapped mightily,
blowing over everything in its path. After their last known battle, a
giant crater was all that remained and it was named the Underground,
where they have lain in slumber... until now. Through the actions of a
mysterious foe, they have been awakened and unleashed upon the net.
Mega Man is able to intervene and manages to successfully contain one of
the beasts within him.
In addition to the shifting story, new features change up the gameplay.
A new "Cross System" allows Mega Man to utilize the special power of
allies in battle. Mega Man will encounter several "Link Navis" along
the way which, when defeated, will lend their own cross ability that can
be used in battle. Though very useful, each has a particular weakness.
Another powerful advantage is the "Beast Out" system, resulting from
Mega Man's absorption of the powerful Cybeasts. The option to use the
ancient monster's power during battle will become available, offering a
boost in speed, ability to rapid fire Buster shots, double a Battle
Chip's attack power and more. While a Cross is equipped, Mega Man can
also Beast Out, combining the forces of these two systems to maximize
the power of the Crosses even further. However, the use of the Beast
Out system is very limited and if Mega Man becomes fatigued, he may
succumb to an uncontrollable overdrive mode called "Beast Over." In
this state, Mega Man will be very powerful for a short period of time,
but then when he is released from this mode, he will be left in a very
weakened state, close to dying.
Mega Man Battle Network 6 includes the following features:
* New town, new storyline!
* "Cross System" - defeat Link Navis and gain their special
"Cross" ability which Mega Man can use in battle
* "Beast Out" powers - allows players to use the abilities of a
formidable Cybeast creature
* Combine both Cross and Beast Out systems for incredible power
* Game Boy(r) Advance Game Link(r) Cable and wireless adapter
o Trade programs and Battle Chips
o Compare records and have Net battles with your friends
* Distinct features for Cybeast Gregar and Cybeast Falzar
* Five distinct Link Navis aid Mega Man in each version, for a
total of 10
* Assorted Battle Chips for each version
* Each Cybeast is the final boss for the two versions
* Combinations of Cross and Beast Out systems vary between the two
o Different strategies for winning - with unique powers available
and different enemies players face in each game, the strategy for
completing them will change
