It is a collection of some of their old school side scrolling brawlers, with online support as well, and includes 2 games that have never been released on consoles before, Armored Warriors and Battle Circuit. I am huge fan of this genre, very happy to hear this

Final Fight (1989) – Those who are familiar with the Street Fighter series may recognize a few characters from this title. Cody, Abigail, Guy, Sodom, Rolento, and versions of Poison and Hugo all originated from Final Fight before they made their appearances in their respective Street Fighter games. Up to two players can go on a mission to save Haggar’s daughter Jessica from the Mad Gear Gang by choosing one of three playable characters: Haggar, Cody, or Guy.
Captain Commando (1991) – Starring Capcom’s original mascot Captain Commando, this science fiction beat ‘em up allows up to four players to choose between Captain Commando, Mack the Knife, Ginzu the Ninja, and Baby Head. This Commando Team is tasked with ridding crime from the entire galaxy, but unbeknownst to them, many of the criminals have extraordinary powers.
The King of Dragons (1991) – Set in a medieval world with orcs, harpies, minotaurs and wyverns, The King of Dragons allows up to three players to choose between five characters that are reminiscent of standard tabletop games: Fighter, Dwarf, Elf, Cleric, and Wizard.
Knights of the Round (1991) – Based off of the legend of King Arthur, this game allows up to three players to choose between King Arthur himself, Lancelot, and Perceval. Learning how to effectively block is vital for getting through the seven stages. Just like medieval times, you can even ride horses, which will help you stomp down enemies!
Warriors of Fate (1992) – In the Japanese version, Warriors of Fate is based off of the Chinese novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms. In the English version, an original story with Mongolian origins was created. Up to three players can choose between five great warriors to take down the evil overlord across nine stages.
