Is the Capcom Fighting Collection a decade late?

It was announced about a week ago that Capcom plans on releasing a series of 2D old school video games entitled the Capcom Fighting Collection in Summer 2022. The Capcom Fighting Collection game will include a variety of 2D classics from each the 90s. The games included in the Capcom Fighting Collection includes:

  • Cyberbots
  • DarkStalkers: The Night Warriors
  • Vampire Savior
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II: Tubro
  • Vampire Hunter 2: DarkStalkers Revenge
  • Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix
  • Red Earth
  • Hyper Street Fighter II: Anniversary Collection
  • Vampire Savior 2
  • Night Warriors: DarkStalkers: Revenge

While each Capcom game listed above has been re-released in the past in some form on older generation game systems; they were re-released mainly by series with different lineups. In 2013, we got DarkStalkers Resurrection which included to games within the series from ‘95-‘97. Hyper Street Fighter II: Anniversary Collection was initially released back in ‘03 for the PS2 and Xbox. There were also games like Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix and Super Puzzle Fighter II: Turbo that were re-released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 through online stores. If anything the only games from the Capcom Fighting Collection that would be new to many casuals today would probably be Red Earth and Cyberbots: Full Medal Madness from ‘96-‘97. It would of been nice if the Capcom Fighting Collection was released. back in sometime in the early 10’s between 2011-2012. However, all of the games within the Capcom Fighting Collection are still old regardless. In 2022, not too many people care about 2D Capcom fighting games other than hardcore gamers who came up during the 90s. But at the same time the Capcom Fighting Collection is still a nice treat for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch owners; who have never played any of the games featured on it during the past.
