Last year, Capcom resurrected 32 classic arcade titles in its Arcade Stadium Collection, including games like Ghosts 'n Goblins, Commando, Strider, Giga Wing, and every 194X game ever made. Although not a comprehensive collection of Capcom’s arcade games, it was a great start for those who missed playing these titles when they were all the rage in the ‘80s and ‘90s.
One of the larger complaints with Capcom’s Arcade Stadium Collection was its lack of some of Capcom’s classic fighters. Street Fighter II is great and all, but Capcom is way more than just Street Fighter.
Today, Capcom is bringing back some of its lesser-known but still wonderful fighting games in the Capcom Fighting Collection, the follow-up to last year’s Arcade Stadium. It’ll include 10 games, including two that have never been released outside of Japan and one that was never released outside of arcades.
Here’s the full list from Capcom’s announcement page:
- Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors
- Night Warriors: Darkstalkers’ Revenge
- Vampire Savior: The Lord of Vampire
- Vampire Hunter 2: Darkstalkers’ Revenge
- Vampire Savior 2: The Lord of Vampire
- Red Earth
- Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness
- Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix
- Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
- Hyper Street Fighter II
Vampire Hunter 2: Darkstalkers’ Revenge and Vampire Savior 2: The Lord of Vampire have never been released outside of Japan, so both will get worldwide localization. Red Earth, meanwhile, has never made the leap beyond arcade cabinets.
The vast majority of these games are classic fighters meant to be played against human opponents, but that's sort of difficult outside an arcade. That's why Capcom is giving each of these games full online multiplayer, with ranked, casual, and custom online matches. Each game will also support rollback netcode for the best possible experience.
Capcom Fighting Collection will hit PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and the Nintendo Switch on June 24. Pre-orders are available now and include bonus items like an album of 18 remixed songs, exclusive new illustrations from Capcom artists, and Three Wonders, a 1991 compilation featuring the games Midnight Wanderers, Chariot, and Don’t Pull.
