Capcom mini arcade

Had enough of these things yet?

Capcom are trying again.
But this time with a censored poor selection in a rather nice case

Included few are...
Mega Man The Power Battle
Mega Man 2 The Power Fighters
Mega Man X
Mega Man Soccer
Mega Man & Bass (Japanese Console Version)
Street Fighter II
Street Fighter II’ Champion Edition
Super Street Fighter II
Super Street Fighter II Turbo
Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
All for the sum of about $210

Because we cant get enough of the same handful of Street fighter 2 games CAN WE!!?

It feels like they arent even bothered to put in any kind of effort after the amount of goodness the other thing had on it

On the upside, with Mega Man and Street Fighter being two series I don't care for, I'm not even remotely tempted to throw away money on this one.

Looks pretty naff. How many of these things are they going to produce?

Having all those SFII versions is such a waste of space too. Most SF and fighting game fans have their favourite version and stick to it. For me, it's Super Turbo - wouldn't bother going back to older editions.

Maybe for casual/newcomers who aren't familiar with the SF evolution but, then again, a machine filled with just Mega Man and SF games doesn't look like it would be too appealing for anybody expecting variety.

Price is ridiculous too. Just put a bigger range of games out on PSN/XBLA or do a mega physical compilation.

Wow, seems a total waste especially at a price that'd only be for the hard-core collector.

I do love me some Hyper, mostly for the arranged music from the 3DO version (which I believe was Grandmaster Challenge?).

Never played Ultra but it looks like it's just HD Remix with MORE bloody Shoto characters.

Evil Ryu and Evil Ken.
Both are as broken as Akuma was at first
