    Announced in the Nintendo Direct was the Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle, a collection that packs together five classic retro titles, with a bonus two games that had never had a release outside of arcades. This bundle was scheduled to release not only for the Nintendo Switch, but also for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One as well. However, shortly after the Direct aired, Capcom quietly pushed back the PC release of the Beat 'Em Up Bundle, delaying it to a timeframe of "soon." All other versions of the game are still slated for a September 18 release.

    The Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle will contain the following seven games: Final Fight, Captain Commando, The King of Dragons, Knights of the Round, Warriors of Fate, Armored Warriors, and Battle Circuit. All of the aforementioned inclusions will offer local and online co-op as well.

    They want to increase switch and console sales, before CODEX destroys their anti piracy software.

    Making this trailer costed more than the roms they sell.
    Game companies lost all shame by keep reselling their roms for 20+ years while gamers keep buying them as "new" and forget they already own them on (all) their previous consoles.
    I hope this stops so the companies are forced to make more new games. The games we play today are 60% remastered, ports, roms and if this continues I fear the percentage will go higher.

    Hopefully they've done a better job on this than they did on the SF Anniversary collection... despite an army of defenders claiming "they're arcade perfect!", they were far from arcade perfect - most other options for emulating the arcade roms was closer to arcade perfect than what they released.
    Regardless, I'll probably pick up the PS4 release of this at some point - if we don't show support for the titles we appreciate it's unlikely they'll ever return to these franchises again.
    Shame there's no Aliens vs Predator on here - that would've made it an insta-buy... but I know we're never likely to see a legit home version of that ever.

    There are missing final fight 2-3, knowing our crapcom the master of blood milking, I'm sure there will be more arcade collections on the way.

    Darkstalkers is a "versus fighter", these are all scrolling brawlers.

    Consoles have far more active users than MAME, and u could probably find more easily people to play online with, capcom uses the same mode for street fight 4-5: while you're playing you also host the game and its open to all for people to join, while on MAME, the chance to meet someone is probably less than Spiderman goes to vocation in Gotham city.

    Being a Capcom game, it's guaranteed to have Denuvo on it, but they would have implemented that towards the beginning of development time. No need to delay a game for that. Hopefully they are using the time to improve the network play and optimize the emulators' code, and not just delaying the game for marketing reasons.

    Also that "soon" is pretty foreboding. If it was only a week to a month delay, we'd get a release date. It's going to be months at the earliest.

    All that being said, I'll probably just get the Xbone version tomorrow.
