Over the years, Capcom has made a lot of great fighting games that aren’t as well known as Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom. Capcom’s gothic horror series Darkstalkers was a cult hit when it came out in the late 1990s, and the less well-known Red Earth was a big hit after it came out in 1996.
For the first time, Capcom has put together a collection of not just Street Fighter but a whole bunch of other fighting games, including some that have never been released in the West before.
Capcom Fighting Collection officially reveal on Monday morning through Capcom’s official YouTube channel. The compilation includes ten games from the Street Fighter and Darkstalkers series. The previously mentioned Red Earth, and ten games from other series.
