    friends and enemies anywhere, with this exclusive collection of legendary
    arcade hits, remixed for wireless two player action on the PSP!

    Fully customisable controls enhance the gaming experience by allowing

    Capcom Classics Collection Remixed - lighter than loose change, more fun
    than a barrel of monkeys!

    • Street Fighter – The game that started the entire fighting phenomenon
      and created a generation of video game brawlers... This first Street
      Fighter game only had two playable characters, Ken and Ryu, who
      would travel the world to compete in martial arts tournaments.
    • Strider – Classic action platform game that follows Strider Hiryu who
      must save the earth from the clutches of the evil Grandmaster Meio and
      his minions. One of the greatest platform games of all time and
      inspiration for all that followed...
    • 1941 – The greatest vertical shooter ever that challenges player to
      shoot down enemy fighters, buildings, ships and vehicles.
    • Captain Commando – Following in the footsteps of several great
      side-scrolling brawler titles, this two player co-op game tracks the
      adventures of four intergalactic space rangers who must enforce peace
      throughout the galaxy.
    • Block Block – An innovative twist to the block breaking genre, Block
      Block features a two player co-op mode, allowing for the cooperative
      destruction of blocks. Also unique to this title was the constantly
      shrinking paddle that forced player to finish each board as quickly as
      possible.
    • Magic Sword – An intense side-scrolling game that takes players
      through 50 levels of the ominous Dragon Tower in order to defeat the
      evil Drokkmar.
    • Quiz and Dragons – The most innovative quiz game of its time which
      features integrated RGP style gameplay. Taking place on a virtual board
      game, players would roll the dice to determine their progression. A
      battle would ensue if characters landed on an enemy. Knowledge is
      power as quizzes are provided with each confronted challenger.
      Answering correctly is a strike against the enemy. A wrong answer is a
      strike against the player...
    • Three Wonders – A compilation of three games in one that covered
      three different genres: horizontal scrolling platformer (Midnight
      Wanders), horizontal scrolling shooter (Chariot) and a puzzle game
      (Don’t Pull).
    Play all these arcade-perfect, pocket-sized classics, from the Capcom
    catalogue of yesteryear – plus many more including Bionic Commando,
    Final Fight, Side Arms, Legendary Wings and Avengers
