All seven titles will support drop-in local and online multiplayer co-op play, enabling friends to join up together.

I will wait for Capcom's usual sales with their games and I get it for 5 dollars or under.

They need to save some games for a Beat'em up Bundle Volume 2.

Guess so, just like the classics they released two gens ago.

If that were true then they should add The Punisher and Cadillacs & Dinosaurs for a complete licensing nightmare.

Alien vs Predator is never going to happen because they'd have to pay SEGA and Fox.

This is a good collection for me I've never played Captain Commando (1991), The King of Dragons (1991), Warriors of Fate (1992), Armored Warriors (1994) and Battle Circuit (1997).

So I'll be there.

Oh man, King of the Dragons. My friend and I used to sink hours into that game as a kid. Still have my SNES copy.
