As is the case every year, Capcom used its annual Capcom Gamers' Day event to announce several new titles. Given the Japanese publisher's massive catalog, it should come as little surprise that it is releasing a compilation of classic puzzle games for the PlayStation Portable in the second quarter of 2006.
Capcom Puzzle World is a compendium of old-school console puzzlers shrunken down for the PSP. First up is a revamped version of Super Puzzle Fighter II, which will feature new gameplay options previously exclusive to the Japanese version of the game: Super Puzzle Fighter II: Y, which allows for chain-reaction, come-from-behind wins, and Super Puzzle Fighter II: Z, which has bricks falling up instead of down.
Another game included in Capcom Puzzle World is a port of the 1990 arcade game Block Block. The game allows cooperative block-breaking for two players, who must manipulate constantly shrinking paddles to clear the blocks.
Last but not least is the three-in-one Buster Bros. Collection, which was originally released for the PlayStation. As the name implies, the game is itself a compilation of three arcade puzzle shooters: Buster Bros., Super Buster Bros., and Buster Buddies.
All five games included in Capcom Puzzle World have been optimized for the PSP system's 16x9 letterbox screen, and all will support ad hoc wireless multiplayer. The collection will also feature a snapshot mode that lets players record their moments of triumph and lets them import their own pictures to use as level backgrounds.
