Rockman EXE is a spin off series of Rockman set in the year 200x. The series spans six games across the Gameboy Advance (with Rockman EXE 5 also appearing on the Nintendo DS). Players control Hikari Netto outside of the game's net world. When it's time to jack into the net and bust viruses, Netto can do so by using his NetNavi Rockman.EXE contained in a device called the PET (PErsonal Terminal).
Much of the gameplay resembles older Rockman games as players can defeat bosses and viruses to acquire their "Chip" data and use them as attacks as they see fit. While in the net world, players will control Rockman.EXE while busting viruses and protecting the web from villians ranging from the classic Wily to hellbent corporations such as Gospel, along with new faces such as Dr. Regal.
After the series' sixth and final game, the Rockman metaseries has developed yet another spin off game in the form of Ryuusei no Rockman (Mega Man Starforce).
