Arcade title compilation Capcom Fighting Collection includes an in-game music player. The 2D sprite-based fighting game collection contains ten titles—among them, CP System II arcade cabinet installments from the Darkstalkers and Street Fighter series.

All five entries in the Darkstalkers saga, published between 1995 and 1997, are represented in Capcom Fighting Collection. They are Darkstalkers, Night Warriors, Vampire Savior, Vampire Hunter 2 and Vampire Savior 2. Red Earth, Capcom's first arcade game for the CP System III cabinet in 1996, makes its debut on home consoles.

Another addition for the compilation is Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness, developed in 1995 as a spinoff of the beat-em-up title Armored Warriors. Hyper Street Fighter II first landed on PlayStation 2 in 2003 as a modified port of Super Street Fighter II Turbo. Super deformed spin-off titles Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo and Super Gem Fighter Minimix, appearing in arcades in 1996 and 1997, round out the compilation.

The fighting game collection boasts an assortment of features, including online play with rollback netcode to reduce latency-based control issues in the multiplayer experience. A training mode allows players to practice combos in all titles outside of Puzzle Fighter. Fighter Awards can be unlocked as achievements for pulling off gameplay challenges.

The Fighting Collection museum is stocked with a gallery of over 500 individual pages of concept art, character illustrations and design documents. Also included is an in-game music player, offering an expansive retrospective soundtrack album. Over 400 classic music tracks from the featured game titles are represented. Preorders will secure bonus music player content in the form of 18 arranged music tracks by CAP-JAMS and other artists.

Capcom Fighting Collection is available for Windows through Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Music for the selected titles is composed by Yoko Shimomura, Takayuki Iwai, Hideki Okugawa, and Akari Kaida, among others.
