A long, long time ago, three dragons descended from the heavens with rolling thunder and plunged a kingdom into darkness…

Despite the name, this arcade game from Capcom’s early days tells the story of a lone barbarian on a quest to defeat three terrifying dragons, not tigers, in order to rescue the kingdom from certain disaster. It features an upgrade system that allows you to upgrade your weapons, armor, and even your total health like countless Capcom games since. Pick up Zenny as you go, save the stray wise men along the way to get bonuses and buy new items, and save the kingdom!


Saturday Night Teachers (1993)

There’s nothing like the lights, sounds, and signs in the crowd arguing over which video game in a series is the best when it comes to wrestling. This over-the-top fighting game, known as Muscle Bomber – The Body Blast – in Japan (how can you No Do you love that name?), features character designs by Tetsuo Hara, best known for the “Fist of the North Star” manga. You are already set.

Weather Beat Masters It plays like a fighting game at its core, the match doesn’t end when you deplete your opponent’s stamina bar with punches and grabs. Just like in a professional wrestling match, you’ll need to pin your enemy to the mat and go to the count of three. In addition to the many colorful characters in the cast, ranging from American professional wrestlers to wrestlers, you may also recognize a certain feisty mayor of Metro City. This Mike “Macho” Haggar guy looks awfully familiar…


Hyper Dyne Side Arms (1986)

The interstellar Bozon Empire has launched a full-scale attack on Earth! It’s up to a pair of pilots to pilot a massive robot, known as a mobile suit, to defeat the Empire and prevent Earth from being conquered.

Weather Hyper Dyne Side Arms At first glance, it looks like a classic side-scrolling shooter, complete with various upgradable weapons and speedups (and slowdowns), where it really shines is the ability to switch weapons on the fly. Switching to the right weapon for the right job is key as you fly through the stages, taking out enemies and dodging bullets. One of the most unique features of the game is its cooperative approach. Picking up a certain powerup in single player will call an ally to powerup your suit and give it an 8-way shot. In co-op, both players’ outfits will merge, allowing one player to move around and fire their normal weapon while the second player controls the 8-way shot. Now that is teamwork.


knights of the round (1991)

This classic beat ’em up is, as the name suggests, based on the legend of King Arthur. He Play as Arthur, Lancelot or Perceval and wield your sword (or axe) on a grand adventure across the kingdom!

Supporting up to three players at a time, deal damage to your enemies and collect silver, gold and treasure along the way to increase your score. The game also has a unique guard mechanic that, when timed correctly, can unleash a devastating counter attack, so don’t be afraid to play aggressively and score high! As your score increases, so does your level, and as your level increases, you’ll gain upgraded armor and weapons, ultimately becoming a hero worthy of being one of the Knights of the round.


Mega Man – The Battle of Power (nineteen ninety five) / Mega Man 2 – The mighty fighters (nineteen ninety six)

Super fighting robot… Mega Man! Super fighting robot… Mega Man!

I’m sorry, where was I? Correct. This pair of arcade games features the Blue Bomber himself, swapping classic platforming for a more intense fighting game style presentation. Depending on the game you play, you’ll be able to choose between Mega Man, Proto Man, Bass, and Duo, each with a different play style and story unique to that character. Two players can even play cooperatively to take down Robot Masters together!

Each game also gives you three paths to take down bad guys on your way to victory, with plenty of familiar enemies to face from previous Mega Man games. In classic Mega Man style, gain new powers from each enemy! defeated and use them to find your opponent’s weakness on your mission to stop Dr. Wily’s latest evil ambitions!


That’s it and many more Capcom gems from the vault to discover. The game is available now on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S (via backwards compatibility), so don’t forget to buy a copy!
