Capcom and word compilation are no stranger. Over the years we have had many of them: from Mega man until Street Fighter. Not to mention arcade game collections like Capcom Arcade Stadium. The series was not from the PS4 generation Blackheads. Capcom Fighting Collection It arrives exactly to please the fans of this fighting series, with additional titles to make the collection even stronger.
Let us first explain what Capcom Fighting Collection Offers. Basically, these are the following 10 games:
- Darksstalkers: The Night Warriors
- Night Warriors: Darkstalkers’ Revenge
- Vampire Savior: The Vampire Lord
- Vampire Hunter 2: Darkstalkers’ Revenge
- Vampire Savior 2: The Vampire Lord
- Hyper Street Fighter II: Anniversary Edition
- Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
- Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix
- Cyberbots: All-metal madness
- Red Earth
All can be enjoyed in English or Japanese versions except Vampire Hunter 2: Darkstalkers’ Revenge And Vampire Savior 2: The Vampire LordWhich are only available in Japanese.
The titles are exactly what we had in their original versions. There is Arcade Mode, Versus and basically that’s it. However, for every game there are two important new features: training mode is enabled and online.
The training mode is very simple but effective. Online, in turn, is a netcode back and forth and is available for all games in the collection. For fear of being abandoned in the future (after all, there are ten games that separate matchmaking), we have something to deserve praise for: you can change the match schedule in any game at once – even ten. That is, you do not need to search for just one game. You can search for available sessions for anyone you choose at a time.
Since there are no PSN trophies online and we are talking about a collection of niches, it is hard to imagine that there will be many players online. Either way, simultaneous matchmaking is a clever solution.
Menus Capcom Fighting Collection Is simple and straightforward. In addition to the offline and online games offered by the games themselves, we have a museum and its profile. The museum has art from games and music that can be heard. Already in profile where you mostly follow PSN trophies. Most of them are simple things like playing and finishing games. But there is a specific, which is to finish every game with all the characters, which is not difficult, but time consuming. For those of you who love the finish of this classic arcade mode, I would say this is a complete plate.
As for games Capcom Fighting Collection, Not much to say given that they have existed for years. These are games that, if you are a fan of the fighting genre, are worth checking out if you have never done it before. But for those who know, there will not be much news other than online that will depend on the community.
Except for the full series Defenders of Darkness (Which are basically three titles – the last two, available only in Japanese, are versions with some modifications), noteworthy. Red Earth. The latter is a game (never released on the console) that combines combat and RPG. You choose one of the four available characters and you will meet different bosses who can become giants. With each battle you win, in addition to telling the story, you get XP and unlock more skills (hits).
Hyper Street Fighter II: Anniversary Edition Is one of the most complete versions Street Fighter II, Offers different styles of characters. But it’s still a classic that everyone knows. Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix (Also known as Pocket fighter) And Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo There are two common titles that enrich the collection for a while Cyberbots Seems to be honest, only ten games were put in here to close.
As for the emulation of these games, it is functional and has various graphic filters, wallpaper options, button settings and storage mode (save at any time and load if needed).
At the end, Capcom Fighting Collection This is a mix of Capcom fighting games that, for the most part, are “left over” and not yet available in the last or current generation. The only similarity between them is that they fight (except Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo).
This is a good collection for remembering (or getting to know) the past and for all of them to play arcade modes quietly, as well as with online friends. However, its price is slightly higher (199 R $ or 39.99 USD) whatever the package offers, so I recommend waiting for a discount.
