Compilations containing emulated beat 'em up games

As you well know, Drachenfaust doesn't list emulations of games on other systems (in contrast to ports!). For one reason it's to keep the lists clearly arranged – just think of all the Capcom Collections that would have to be included several times for each beat 'em up game included – and for another it's simply because a Neo Geo ROM emulated on a PS2 is still the exact same Neo Geo game.

However, for most people such compilations are often the only (legal) way to play certain titles, especially arcade games, on their home consoles. So here's a (still growing) list of compilations that include emulations of beat 'em up games to help you find the classics you want to play, even if you don't own the original hardware (anymore).

GameBoy Advance

Wii (please note that Virtual Console titles are not listed)

Sega Saturn

Sega Dreamcast


PlayStation 2

PlayStation 3 (please note that download-only titles are not listed)

PlayStation Portable
