Capcom arcade classics arriving on consoles

Capcom Arcade Cabinet brings classic games such as Ghosts 'n Goblins, Legendary Wings and Commando to home consoles over the next two months

 

Anyone who can remeber the hammer acoustics of the video arcade of their youth is in for a treat this month as Capcom is set to release a long list of classics on both the PlayStaion Network and the Xbox Live Arcade. Starting February 19th, Capcom are going to start dropping one of five games bundles every two weeks. Each pack will include three Capcom classic arcade titles and, to round out the move, there'll be a special all-in-one bundle for purchase in April, which includes all of the titles from all of the packs including two as-yet-unrevealed bonus games.

Players will be able to adjust the difficulty and number of lives they have in each game and even take part in online play with their friends, provided their game of choice has a two-player mode. They will also be able to access the soundtrack of every game they buy.

 

 

Here's that list in full with prices and release dates:

Pack 1, released February 19th (US) and 20th (EU), costing £3.99/$4.99/€4.99/400MP: Black Tiger, 1943: Battle Of Midway, Avengers

Pack 2, released March 5th (US) and 6th (EU), costing £7.99/$9.99/€9.99/800MP: Ghost 'n Goblins, Gunsmoke, Section Z

Pack 3, released March 19th (US) and 20th (EU), costing £7.99/$9.99/€9.99/800MP: Side Arms, Speed Rumbler (Rush & Crash), Exed Exes (Savage Bees)

Pack 4, released April 2nd (US) and 3rd (EU), costing £7.99/$9.99/€9.99/800MP: Commando, Legendary Wings, Trojan

Pack 5, released April 16th (US) and 17th (EU), costing £7.99/$9.99/€9.99/800MP: SonSon, 1942, Pirate Ship Higemaru

Pack 6, released April 16th (US) and 17th (EU), costing £23.99/$29.99/€29.99/2000MP: All the above titles and two mystery bonus games.

Personally, we're looking forward to these, as it's finally a chance for some arcade game closure by seeing the end of both Legendary Wings and Speed Rumbler.
