As if I wasn’t willing to get this enough already!
my old soul has been wanting a Morrigan my entire life.
You never know how much you want something until it's right in front of you. I'm looking so forward to this collection. Red Earth, finally! All the Darkstalkers! Return of Pocket freaking Fighter, hells yeah!
@Joriss Exactly! So far this year it’s only really been Pocky & Rocky Reshrined and Klonoa that has excited me at all. Until this 😂
(OK maybe I’ll give Kirby a chance eventually…)
Only aspect Im curious about its the Enhanced EX setting.
They showed pocket fighters this time and Akuma being avaliable (presuming he wasnt avaliable in the arcade version without a code)
But it was with the last trailer and Dark stalkers Im more curious on. Whether it just means it with have the (small number of EX/DX options found on the home releases) An increase in EX options or being able to mix and match different character revisions ala the PSP release.
Or something else entirely eg a whole set of new EX options
All we now is the Marvel fighting / Capcom / Street Fighter Crossover games, Alien Vs Predator, Cadillacs & Dinosaurs and The Punisher!
Gem Fighter and Red Earth in the SAME collection is something I could've never expected but I NEEDED! So excited ^___^
@Orokosaki And we also need Soul Calibur. I realise it's not by Capcom and has zero relationship to those games mentioned but we still need it.
@Orokosaki if they managed to bring any of the Marvel fighting games to the Switch, it would be insane!
They can't make the demo available for all of us, online? Thanks...?
@Burntbreadman I'd assume it depends on the game in question. For Cyberbots at the very least I'd expect all the boss characters to be unlocked by EX mode. The real question would be if they'd also include the console exclusive Cyber-Akuma.
Whereas for Hyper SF2... it's hard to guage what they could do there since I think that version already has Akuma unlocked for it. Theres a few semi-hidden characters in Darkstalkers as well I guess, Oboro Bishamon, Anita, Marionette and such.
