Mega Man Battle Network Tankobon to Appear in April 2023

mega man battle network tankobon manga

A new tankobon collecting chapters of the Mega Man Battle Network manga will appear in bookstores from late April 2023. The title is Mega Man Battle Network New Stories 2023. As the title implies, there will also be new chapters that did not appear in its original Monthly CoroCoro Comic medium. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

The reason why the New Stories 2023 tankobon will come out in April 2023 is because that’s around when the Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection will debut. As a reminder, its release date will be April 14, 2023 and it will come out for the PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC (via Steam).

There will be a total of five chapters in New Stories 2023. They are:

  • Lan Gets Amnesia?
  • Operation: Make Rock & Roll Friends Again
  • Fear! Uncover the Secret of Phantom Isle
  • Proto Man Runs Away From Home
  • Hanayashiki Mission 2: Destroy The Cause of The Rampaging Panda Car!

Ryo Takamisaki is the creator behind the Mega Man NT manga series. Thirteen tankobon appeared in Japan from 2001 to 2006, with the English versions appearing from 2004. Viz Media licensed it for North America.

Mega Man Battle Network New Stories 2023 manga will appear in bookstores in late April 2023. You can pre-order it via Amazon or Fukkan. Ordering it from Fukkan will include four prints of the original work and a booklet of the first chapter.
