Captain Commando

Capcom is bundling up some of its most famous side-scrolling fighters in a slap-happy collection that will have arcade fans giggling with glee.

Capcom Beat ’Em Up Bundle includes Final Fight, Captain Commando, King of Dragons, Knights of the Round, Warriors of Fate, Armored Warriors and Battle Circuit. The latter two games have never been available on any console previously, making this quite an interesting digital compendium for fans of the genre.

Final Fight needs no introduction, and being able to play an arcade-perfect version on Switch will be a real boon. Captain Commando is similarly famous and features a character which is basically a giant robot controlled by a baby - so that's a must-play, naturally.

Knights of the Round, King of Dragons and Warriors of Fate are fantasy-style fighters, while Armored Warriors takes places in the same universe as the one-on-one brawler Cyberbots. Finally, Battle Circuit is one of Capcom's most accomplished side-scrolling beat 'em ups, but was released just as the genre was on its way out of arcades and consequently didn't get the audience it deserved; hopefully, that oversight will be fixed with this new release.

If all of this sounds rather jolly to you, then you'll be excited to learn that the bundle launches on the Switch eShop on September 18th - next week, to be more precise.
