Capcom Belt Action Collection
PlayStation®4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox™One Ι Genre: Capcom Platinum Collection
The seven Lucky Gods, the seven colors of the rainbow, the seven days of a week, the seven wonders of the ancient world, the seven seas, the seven Dragon Balls…
Throughout the long millennia of history humankind gave a special meaning to some specific numbers, in particular, the number 7 has appeared in many different cultures as a powerful symbol of completion and perfection. For example, even many plants, insects, and animals have biological cycles based on seven. While from a more pop-pov this number is very important in the worldwide beloved series Game of Thrones. In fact, we can see that are present seven kingdoms, the Faith of the Seven religion, and the seven members of the Kingsgaurd, and we must not forget that George R.R. Martin planned to write seven books of his “A Song of Ice and Fire” cycle.
Even Capcom knows the importance of it, and for the first time has gathered seven action gems from the past to make a very precious collection: Capcom Belt Action Collection for PS4, XB1, and Switch!
