In celebration of the company's 30th anniversary, Capcom will be releasing the Microsft Game Room-esque Capcom Arcade Cabinet on PS3 and 360, gathering together their arcade hits from 1984 to 1988, purchasable individually or in packs.
A downloadable title for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, Capcom Arcade Cabinet will launch on February 19th (US)/20th (EU) and come with Black Tiger for free. The other games on the service- including the likes of 1942, Commando and Side Arms: Hyper Dyne- will be available in packs of 3, released every fortnight from the 19th/20th onwards for $9.99/€9.99/£7.99/800MSP each. They can also be bought individually for $3.99/€3.99/£3.19/320MSP each two weeks after their initial pack launch, and from May 21st/22nd you can buy the whole lot for $29.99 / €29.99 / £23.99 / 2000 MSP- buying all of them awards two bonus games (and the Japanese trailer for the game shows these games are Vulgus- Capcom's first arcade game- and 1943 Kai). A bit like the Game Room, then, but all Capcom, all the time.
All of these games have seen home ports before- most notably, on the two Capcom Classics Collection packs available on the PS2 and Xbox- but these new versions will come with online multiplayer and leaderboards, full dip-switch settings, unlockable bonus artwork, and a new 'Casual Mode' for each game which makes them easier and makes other changes. Additionally, 360 players will be able to upload screenshots to Facebook (use it to show people levels beyond the first one in Ghosts 'n Goblins) and PS3 players will get to upload replays to YouTube (probably best used to show off some sick powersliding in The Speed Rumbler).
At the moment, the following are confirmed to appear in Capcom Arcade Cabinet, divided into packs of three:
1943: Battle of Midway
Ghosts ‘n Goblins
The Speed Rumbler
Pirate Ship Higemaru
Oddly, Exed Exes will be appearing under the much-less-common Savage Bees moniker.
So, will you be switching on Capcom's Arcade Cabinet, or not?
