Rockman EXE WS (ロックマンエグゼ WS?) is a platform video game, part of the Mega Man Battle Network subseries of Mega Man video games. The game was released on the WonderSwan Color, only in Japan. This game is a platformer like Mega Man Network Transmission, rather than a role-playing game.

An unofficial English patch was made for the game on August 30, 2012.

Reception[edit]

Rockman EXE WS was scored a total of 26 out of 40 from a panel of four reviewers in the Japanese Famitsu magazine. Lucas M. Thomas and Craig Harris of IGN preferred this unlocalized game over the card-based Mega Man Battle Chip Challenge, which was released on the WonderSwan and on the Game Boy Advance in Western territories.[1] 1UP.com's Jeremy Parish agreed Rockman EXE WS was better, but still called it "a pretty terrible excuse for a Mega Man game, similar in concept to Network Transmission, but indescribably worse." [2]
