The collection will come with new features, including the development docs, original songs from the arcade releases, and never-before-seen art. It also comes with additional training settings, with one-button specials for new players. Hopefully, there's an option to save and load whenever you want, so if you can try again quickly after losing a fight.

Players can also view the original marquee cards while gaming offline. As for online play, there will be a lobby for ranked matches, matches for friends, and casual matches with rollback netcode plus global high-score leaderboards, as well as training mode and spectator mode.
