Blue has an extra boss. That's pretty much the main difference.

It sucks that people won't be able to 100% the game since two GBA carts were required to get all the chips.

One of the most underrated and under appreciated games of all time.
These games had the greatest combat system in any game I have ever played.

Oh man. I already have so many Mega Man games on my Wii U. If they release all Battle Network titles plus MM&B and the Zero titles the thing will need rebranding to Mega Man U.

What's the point of White then?
Besides the bonus boss, Blue has a couple of other bosses in the main story swapped out. Blue was actually a bonus version (called Black) released after 3's original release in Japan (our White version) with bugfixes and extra areas, but they tried to pull a Pokemon when they brought it here.

Skipping to the best ones, I see.

What is this. Ten-year-old me feels cheated.

What the fuck.

Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice.

Follow-up with the MMBN6 games and I'd be set.

Please let this be a sign that Capcom is testing the waters. Horinouchi (EXE Producer) has wanted to do a proper EXE revival for years!

I was just looking this up, so our Blue is Black in Japan (their enhanced Blue) and our White is their White. And Black (our Blue) has the bug fixes and extra content, but our White is the same as theirs without that extra stuff and fixes right?

Yes, please.

The Battle Network series came into being two handheld generations early. It was absolutely BUILT for the communications features of the 3DS. Please,please revive .EXE.

I don't even care if they just plain throw out BN6 and continue from there, since the series had a fairly definite "end."

I'm still sad that BN6 never got a DS upport like 5 did with Double Team DS.

Okay guys, how do the GBA games on the Wii U feel? There's still about 9 GBA games I was going to buy used, but if they play well enough from the eShop I'll just get them there instead. Save a few bucks and don't have to worry about buying a bootleg or anything.

still mad they're not on 3DS, but I'll live.

Wow, I'm really happy I got Blue on release then. Went with Blue moon to keep up the motif.

There's some other differences, like chip availability and there's at least one style unique to each game, but I think all the notable bugs were fixed in both versions when they were localized.

Blue still has the edge with the extra boss fight, though.

Oh so it's just the extra boss? I thought it was more than that. What are the game exclusive styles?

I forgot about the Giga chips as well. Each version have these 5 special chips that are completely different from each version. White has one where you can resummon the last boss chip that you used (with all the upgrades). You can even resummon
Bass and Serenade
.

Blue has the infamous Folderback.

White had Ground, which was about manipulating the terrain in battle. Blue had Shadow, which I distinctly remember being stupidly overpowered and involved charge shots turning you invisible and invincible, or something like that.

I've played Battle Network 2-6 and 2 is my favorite.

Really, which ever one you play first will probably end up being your favorite. Each game has more and more end-game content so I would say the later sequels are probably the best for your buck.

Agree with the desire for having this on the 3DS, but when I get a WiiU again this'll be the first thing I download. Would absolutely love to see a reboot/update to this branch of the Mega Man franchise.
