Initially announced during last week’s Nintendo Direct, Capcom revealed their new Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam. The new bundle includes a collection of seven games, paying tribute to the “classic era of arcade side-scrolling, co-op action.”
The Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle includes the classic arcade games Final Fight (1989), The King of Dragons (1991), Captain Commando (1991), Knights of the Round (1991), and Warriors of Fate (1992). In addition to these five classics, Capcom is also including two games that have never been available on console before: Armored Warriors (1994) and Battle Circuit (1997).
The collection will also bring these games to modern standards by including drop-in local and online multiplayer co-op play, along with a plethora of customizations options players can tailor to their likes, such as the difficulty, number of continues, or number of lives. Players will also have the opportunity to dive deeper into each game’s history through a comprehensive gallery of “stunning art, design sketches, development documents, archives of the original game sleeves and instruction cards, as well as special artwork that was only available to fan-club members at the time.”
The Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle launches September 18th for $19.99 in North America.
It’s looking like Capcom is really going the extra mile with this new collection, especially adding online multiplayer support. The continued support for Nintendo Switch is positive to see, and we sure hope they continue this trajectory in the future. But what do you think of the latest announcement?
