One good turn deserves another, as they say, and it looks like Capcom is taking this old saying to heart this year. Back in May we saw the release of the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection which brought fans 12 legendary Street Fighter titles all in one package.

Yesterday, the company unveiled their latest collection of games: Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle. As the name suggests, this new title comprises of seven classic Beat 'Em Up games that fans will undoubtedly recognize.

Included in Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle is Final Fight (1989), Captain Commando (1991), The King of Dragons (1991), Knights of the Round (1991), Warriors of Fate (1992), Armored Warriors (1994), and Battle Circuit (1997).

While this style of game usually falls outside of the parameters of things we cover on EventHubs, I'm sure fighting game fans can quickly see the connection here. Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle comes with two titles that act as the debut for several popular characters we've seen in Capcom fighting games over the years.

"Cody, Abigail, Guy, Sodom, Rolento, and versions of Poison and Hugo all originated from Final Fight," Capcom Unity's blog points out. On top of that, Haggar (from Final Fight) made an appearance in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, while Captain Commando was an extremely popular fighter back in Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

If you're looking for the opportunity to revisit these classic games and play as Cody before he became the Mayor of Metro City in Street Fighter 5 or just get your dosage of Captain Commando as you wait for him to return to the Versus series, you might want to look into picking up Capcom Beat 'Em Up Bundle. It comes with a price tag of $19.99 and is due out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on September 18th.
