Over the past year both SNK and Capcom have done their best to empty their respective back catalogues of fighters into collections for us to enjoy. With both Fatal Fury Collection (#1 - 3) and King of Fighters NESTS on the horizon, and Street Fighter Alpha Anthology still fresh on everyone’s minds, what’s left for either company to do? Sadly we’ll probably never see a Marvel collection from Capcom (X-Men: CotA, Marvel Super Heroes, X-Men vs. SF, MSH vs. SF), due to EA presently having the license, but there’s still a lot of quality / nostalgic stuff that can be put out.
Real Bout Fatal Fury Collection: I think this is a given, and will be released later this year. I wonder if they’ll include the PSX Dominated Mind exclusive game.
Samurai Spirits / Showdown Collection: Dunno why SNK released the Last Blade collection before this, maybe they’re unsure as to how well an SS collection would sell (anyone know how well the PS2 version of Tenka did?).
World Heroes Collection: Personally, World Heroes 2 is a game I played a ton of when I was younger, and I never had the opportunity to play Jet, so I would gladly welcome something like this. With ADK letting SNK use WH characters in NGBC I think it’s not that unlikely either.
Capcom Random Fighters Anthology: Namely Saturday Night Slam Masters 1 & 2, Cyberbots, and Warzard / Red Earth. SNSM 2 never received a home version, so it would be nice to be able to play it outside of MAME, and we know that Capcom was working on a new Warzard game before they were charged with tax fraud in Japan (this game was to include the original Warzard), so why not just do this collection.
I think that covers most of the big stuff by either company - I know SNK could release collection(s) of all the lesser - known Neo-Geo fighters (Breakers, Fighter’s History, etc.) if they were to acquire the rights…any other collections people want?
