E3 06: Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 Hands-On

Capcom's got another round of old arcade games coming to the Xbox and PlayStation 2.

LOS ANGELES--Capcom is one of those companies that possesses a great, deep library of arcade classics. Over the years, the company has brought out repacked compilations of these games in clusters of 10 to 20 at a time. With Capcom Classics Collection Ver. 2 for the Xbox and PlayStation 2, the company is getting ready to release another batch.

Only the Xbox version of the game is being shown at E3 this year and about half the games are currently playable. The playable games we saw were Black Tiger, Captain Commando, Magic Sword, Quiz and Dragons, Side Arms, Street Fighter, Strider, and Three Wonders. For the most part, all of these emulated arcade games seem just fine. The game will also have more arcade games, such as Speed Rumbler, Street Fighter II Turbo, and 1941.

The games are selected via a notebook-like menu that's very similar to the one used in the previous installment in this series and should contain a few extras for each game, such as concept art.

Both versions of Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 are scheduled to be released later this year.
