“Capcom Super-8 Collection” coming to Switch, includes Little Nemo, 1942, Strider, Bionic Commando and more

On Wednesday, Capcom announced that a new collection of its 8-bit NES titles will be coming this summer to the Nintendo Switch in the form of the Capcom Super-8 Collection. Without further ado, here’s the full list of the eight games included:

  • 1942
  • Bionic Commando
  • Commando
  • Little Nemo the Dream Master
  • Legendary Wings
  • Street Fighter 2010: the Final Fight
  • Strider
  • Trojan

Clearly there are no Mega Man or Disney games included (most of which are already available in other collections), but it’s still odd to see a few favorites left out, namely  Ghouls ‘n Ghosts and 1943, for example. It’s possible that Capcom really wanted that “Super-8” part of the collection’s title to have impact and limited the list to 8 games, but c’mon Capcom, we would have forgiven you if the “8” in “Super-8” had just referred to “8-bit”, right?

The collection will cost $29.99 for a physical edition and $19.99 for a digital download via the Nintendo Switch eShop. There is no firm release date yet, with only a release window of “Summer 2020” being announced. You can check out Capcom’s full announcement here.

    Little Nemo is one of the greatest hidden gems of the 8-bit generation… Heck… All time! It’s still a great game, great music, great levels, great artwork… Just an all around great game! If you even remotely enjoy classic gaming and have never played Little Nemo, then I HIGHLY recommend checking it out… and this seems a great way to do it!
