Capcom Classics Collection is a compilation of arcade games released by Capcom for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox on September 27, 2005. It was developed by Digital Eclipse Software (now Backbone Entertainment). A second volume, Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 was released on November 14, 2006, for PlayStation 2 and Xbox.

Two handheld compilations, Capcom Classics Collection Remixed and Capcom Classics Collection Reloaded were released on March 22 and October 24, 2006 respectively on the PlayStation Portable. A Game Boy Advance compilation, Capcom Classics Mini-Mix, released on September 19, 2006. Reloaded is the only title not be developed by Digital Eclipse, but Japanese developer Klein Computer Entertainment.


In 1998, Capcom produced a series of five video game compilations titled Capcom Generations for the PlayStation and Sega Saturn, released in Japan and the PAL region. The series as a whole compiled over 15 arcade games and the Super NES game Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts. Each volume was accompanied by extra features such as a historical overview of each title, artwork gallery, hints and even cast profiles. All games in these compilations also contained enhanced gameplay options such as rapid fire, a bigger screen, and remixed soundtrack.

Volume 1 of Capcom Classics Collection contains all sixteen games from Capcom Generations (converted from these ports rather than the arcade originals) and six added emulated titles, while Volume 2 features all titles not included in the Capcom Generations series. As with the Capcom Generations titles, all games contain extra features, which consists of gameplay tips, artwork, listenable music and cast profiles, although the contents are not identical. All the extra features are typically unlocked by getting high scores or achieving unusual gameplay objectives, such as collecting the Yashichi item in several games or picking up Edi. E's gum in Final Fight. High scores can be saved for all the games for three different difficulty settings, Normal, Hardcore (in which only the minimum number of lives and continues are available and the AI is at its best), or Custom (if the player changes the options from the Normal or Hardcore settings).

The console volumes features one bonus game each. The first volume features a "Deluxe Versus Mode" for the Street Fighter II games which allows two players to compete against each other by offering the players a selection of characters from all three installments of the Street Fighter II series included in the compilation. This game mode was originally from the Street Fighter Collection 2 compilation for the PlayStation and Saturn, which are the versions emulated in Capcom Classics Collection. Volume 2 contains a version of Quiz and Dragons that is exclusively composed of Capcom-related questions.
