Buster Bros. Collection is a compilation of three arcade games in the Buster Bros. series for the PlayStation. It was released in 1997 by Mitchell and Capcom, and was once also set for release on the Sega Saturn.

The Saturn version was advertised in North America (and given an ESRB rating) around the same period as the PlayStation version, but did not materialise for unknown reasons. In Japan and Europe this game is known as Super Pang Collection (スーパーパン コレクション), however there is yet no evidence to suggest the Saturn version was ever due to be released in these regions. It is thought that Sony initially rejected this game during the PlayStation approval process for being 2DMore...[4], which may have had a knock-on effect for the Saturn release.

Games included

  • Super Buster Bros. (Super Pang; 1990)
