Capcom has a new site up for Rockman Rebirth, the next evolution of Mega Man. The game is clearly based off of the Mega Man Battle Network (Rockman EXE) series. Like Battle Network combat takes place on a grid. In Rockman Rebirth the grid is 3×5 squares wide and is on the top screen. The bottom screen has six battle chips that players can select with the touch screen. In the game players will alternate between the real world where they control Subaru and the cyber world. Rockman Rebirth also has another surprise for fans of the EXE / Battle Network series, the Nintendo WiFi symbol on the game’s home page. Could there be online battle chip fights?
This screenshot showcases how battles are played on the DS Lite. While the perspective and controls changed slightly, Rockman Rebirth is similar to the EXE series.
